Hello, I am Aishwarya Chavan and I'm raising funds to finance my education aboard,
And this is my story,
Since my dad lost his job 4 years back, it has forced me to face head-on the realities that my family has been in the last few years. Looking back and describing the last few years of my life, I see all the ways I am disadvantaged due to my socioeconomic status. But I wasn't fully aware of any of it until the point, where I had to drop out of my college and give up on my dreams and was forced to consider changing my career path. Knowing that each moment in the studio represented a financial sacrifice for my family. I cherished every moment in the studio. Being the oldest in the family, I felt it was my responsibility to bring financial stability in my family and the only way I could think of doing it was by dropping out of college and changing my major into something that wasn't as expensive and time-consuming course as Architecture is, I had already sacrificed my dream of studying abroad for my degree, as I was well aware of our conditions, and I was not okay sacrificing my career too, but I was left with no choice. After dropping out, I went into depression, and to help myself get over it I started doing meditation and positivity affirmations. Positive affirmations helped me a lot in changing my perspective towards my life. I started to research about Architectural programs in the USA and applying for all types of financial aids and scholarships. I got acceptance from Kansas State University, which also has a work-study programs the provide on-campus part-time jobs to students. I am on my way of living my dream life while providing financial stability for my family. But to fulfil this dream I need your help, any little help from your side is highly appreciated.
