“Thank you to all the donors who helped support my dreams.”
“I will help poor and sick people with my education.”
“If parents [in my village] don’t allow their daughters to continue their education, I will explain to them the value of college.”
I want to get my bachelors in nursing. If I don’t become a nurse, I know I will still make something of my life. I will support poorer people when I have a job.
I am very thankful that NEF is giving so many girls a chance to study hard and get a good post. If women become educated, all of India will become educated.
My degree is very important to my family. It is our dream that I study, move ahead, get a good salary, and help others. If I get a good job and move ahead, I will be able to support my brothers and sisters in their education as well.
College will teach me how to stand up in society and help other people. After attending college education, I hope to become an engineer.
Many girls from my school did not fill up the college form, because they felt that their parents would not let them leave our village. But I feel that if they had filled up the form, it would have been good. They would have been able to study. After finishing my college degree, I hope to either earn an M.Com [Masters of Commerce] or an MBA and after that I will earn a good salary.
With my Scholarship, I will be able to learn new things and gain more knowledge. I hope to become a teacher so I can use and share this knowledge.
I hope to join the police force after college.
Not only will my job give my family financial security , but I can guarantee safety for others too.
Before me, no one had studied science in my neighborhood. Now everyone asks me for advice. I tell them to study hard, even if they are told no. In villages, mainly boys go to college and girls stay at home, but girls should be sent too.
I am studying Chemistry and my favorite subject is Botany. After my Bachlors of Science, I hope to pursue an M.Sc [Masters of Science] and a B.Ed [Bachelors of Education]. People ask my parents why they are making me study but when I get a job, they will be very proud. I will prove myself.
