Story

When I am studying 8th standard, I lost my father when I am 13 years old, from that time I stopped my studies and started to work and support my family. Started working as a daily labor in building construction works and supported my family. After nearly 2 years I applied in distance education at least to finish 10th standard. I started working in the textile shop as a helper to the salesman, worked as a helper in marble polish work, plumber work, electrician work, been to all sorts of work to earn some money for a living. I was able to save a little money for studies by small sacrifices with my mother's help. In 2013 I came to know about a school about distance education for 12th standard, but it cost around 6000 rupees. But I only have 2800 rupees in my savings, my mom borrowed some money from her friends. I applied for 12th studied so hard and got passed in the first attempt with 54% without any special classes or tuitions. I went to work again worked so hard to get the extra money by doing overnights and clearing the debt which my mother borrowed. When I am serving as a missionary at the end of my mission my mission president encouraged me to continue my studies and said about Brigham Young University Hawaii (BYUH) and the quality of education which they provide over there. I got hope and desire to continue my studies and return back to India and start my own company. I started filling out the application for the college, I need to take a text PTE (Pearson Test of English) need to get the eligible score to apply for BYUH. I heard from a friend I need to go for coaching to clear the test which I cannot afford. So, I started preparing on my own with the help of YouTube and free online tutorials, I sacrificed my sleep and gave my best in the preparation. God has opened a door for me for my education, I got an eligible score in the PTE test of English. I applied for the college my application got selected for the Spring semester 2022.
