In fact, Higher education is always a big challenge for the people like me as my academic goals and dreams are totally jeopardized by financial barriers.
Actually, all know, Bangladesh is a densely populated poor country. The most discussed issue is unemployment problem in my country. For this, the standard of living is not so high and most people live below the poverty line.
In my family, the condition is the worst of all. My father, a poor farmer, is the main earner of it. He leads his life under the lengthening shadow of poverty. So I found my life very struggling and dramatic. For instance, my family starved many times. Despite this penury, I was sent to school. I showed signs of talent in the school. I earned the affection of my teachers who provided guidance in my studies. I secured GPA 5(out of 5) in SSC and GPA 4.9 (out of 5) in HSC examination. Being pleased with my achievement, my father harbored a keen desire to provide me higher education. This is the significant influence that gives me both pleasure and pain. And it is also the pathetic reality of my life. Now I am unable to pay tuition fees for my higher education. Thus my student life is ending early only for financial crisis.
My University and Degree:
I am a student of The University of the People (UoPeople) the world's first non-profit, tuition- free, accredited online university. I have been admitted to Bachelor of Science– Computer Science (BS-CS) program. They don't charge any tuition but take small amount of money as Exam Processing Fee. No doubt, I am the most unlucky boy of the universe as I can not afford
these fees either. But I think, Higher Education is a basic right for all qualified applicants, not just for a privileged few.
Finally, I want to defeat poverty by the power of education. It is possible only if you become kind enough to me. So I humbly beg to you to do something if possible.
