Dear Donors, Thank you for taking the time to review this page. There are many who seek your money to meet their goals, needs and wants. So you must be wondering why, of all those who seek funding, should you give your money to me. I would give you my reasons based on my need and not my merit. I have secured admission in three US universities, which, I believe, proves my merit. I therefore, will appeal to you to see my hardwork and dedication behind securing those offers. I would begin by telling you that you are funding a dream that I honestly did not think I could achieve. I come from a small town in India, where education is a distant dream for many girls in my town. From the age of 10, I stayed away from home, living and studying between strangers in bigger cities, often finding myself out of place in the beginning. Starting from a boarding school in the outskirts of another small town in India, I secured admission in one of the top schools in India in Grade 9. Thereafter, through a competitive all India level examination, I secured admission in one of the premier law schools in my country. My father, working in a small town, perhaps earns 10,000 USD a year, with three daughters to support, has been supporting me beyond his means. He, of course, will be helping me financially, but there is only so much that he can desire, yet do. I chose to be a lawyer because I just knew that's all I wanted to do; I didn't know the reason. However two years into the profession now, I do know what kind of a lawyer I want to be. In the Indian legal system, everyday I come across lawyers that follow practices, unfortunately that are now becoming customary, that have an adverse bearing on the longevity of cases. For instance, an unspoken reality is that lawyers retain one major client and draw out their multiple cases for decades. Several other cases, low on merits, are acutely complicated by ill-advice from the lawyers. In absence of sound ethical practices, 'luxury litigations' by wealthy clients and lawyers alike, is paralysing the judicial system of my country. I now know that I want to deal with this problem. I also know that my education is going to supplement my efforts by giving me a holistic view of the judicial systems in other countries and provide me the tools to tackle the system I would so like to change. My offer for admission was, I believe, taking into consideration my vision for the judicial system in my country and my academic merit. Therefore, I cannot appeal for you to consider my merit, but do hope to appeal to your senses, to consider that getting where I have come, is a dream for someone from a background as mine and I hope that financial paucity would not prevent me from fulfilling it.
