Story

Hi,

I'm Sakshi, majoring in Computer Science with 2 Business related minors at NYIT. I am the first woman in my family to get a degree, the majority of which I paid through 3 on-campus jobs, loans, scholarships and internships at Google and Microsoft. Moreover, I completed my 4-years degree in 3 years (GPA 3.9/4.0, 1 major, 2 minors and multiple jobs) to save a year's worth of expenses.

To help more students in need like me, I started Scholarship Track to help students find scholarships and help them attain those through various mentorship programs. Within a month of launching, it had an audience in 115+ countries and one million impressions.

Recently, I got admitted into a one-year MS program at Carnegie Mellon. It has been my dream to pursue Innovation Management, so I can innovate for the social good. The fees are far beyond my reach and after all the work I can manage to fund 50% of it.

CMU was kind enough to give me a scholarship, but I am short of some amount to attend one of the best engineering institutions in the country. I have been a believer in paying it forward, and have portrayed that before through some of my work.
