Hi everyone! I am Vaibhav Sharma. I was born in Bhilwara, a small city in the state of Rajasthan, India. Ever since I was a kid, I always had a drive for helping people. And it was also the reason why I joined the Smile Foundation, an NGO during my high school. I worked with smile foundation to provide the less fortunate children access to education because I believed that education is everybody's right and they shouldn't be deprived of it because of money.
My parents always supported my cause of helping people and making positive changes in the society. While working with different organizations, I developed a real passion for the managerial aspects. I started working more on the management part of these NGOs as I wanted to help make their work more better from its roots. While assuming a more managerial role I came to understand that although I somehow made things work, I lacked knowledge and wasn't efficient as others. I lacked the vision that a manager needs. All of this, only motivated me to learn more and thus, I decided to enroll in a management program.
I knew that going for a management program would be too taxing financially, I didn't let it dampen my options. I started applying for management courses in different institutions and just recently, I got selected for the MiM program at EDHEC Business School in France for the academic years 2020-2023. Studying at EDHEC BS isn't going to be easy for me as the cost is very high.
Here's a breakdown of the costs required:
Tuition Fees: € 40000
Living Expenses: €14760
Although I have managed to secure the funds for the tuition by a bank loan of € 33000 and € 8000 of personal savings, I still need help with the living expenses.
I urge you all to help me fulfill my dream of education. I am so close to having achieving it while at the same may lose it altogether. Every penny counts, so even a small amount would mean a lot to me. You can connect with me on the following email.
Thanks for reading my story.
