An Appeal

More than a year ago, I decided to pursue a master’s course abroad. This goal became central to my life. I worked hard to clear my entrance. The results were as expected; I was selected at two universities.

My credentials were strong and I had expected I would be able to secure a scholarship as well. But I didn’t. I wrote to the universities time and again, requesting for financial assistance. For six months, I kept trying hard. One of the universities withdrew my admission because I failed to pay the pre-registration fee.

I have been admitted to London School of Economics and Political Science for a post-graduate course in Development Studies. The expenditure is close to GBP 35,000. I have secured financial aid worth GBP 5,000 from a non-profit in India. I have less than a month to arrange for rest of the money; only then I shall be able to attend college at LSE.

I don’t know what to do, but I am not going to stop trying. I have tried to use crowdfunding as a means to help myself. And dear readers from US and UK, you all can help me. Any donation, small or big can take me a step closer to taking up my further education at LSE. Please support my Mission LSE!
