I’m Carla Berdin, a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of San Carlos in Cebu, Philippines. I’m currently working in a company developing firmware/program for watches.
All throughout my education I’ve always been an academic. I place so much value in learning and exploring ideas much so that through hard work and persistence I was able to avail of the university’s scholarship for Dean’s Listers. This helped my family tremendously because I have two older siblings who my parents also put through college. My parents incurred debts for sending us to school and this is the reason why I decided to hold off my plans for higher education and instead, work to assist them. I believe my parents deserve that much. As of this time, we’re slowly stabilizing; perfect timing for something big to come.
This year a chance opened for me to study abroad in Kaiserslautern University of Technology, Germany starting summer of 2018 where there’s no need to worry about tuition, but cost of living is way too high especially for someone from a third world country living modestly. I would need financial help to pursue 2 years of study in Germany along with other fees.
If I get this opportunity, I would like to become a researcher and/or professor, I feel deep in my heart that I was born for the academe to take part in shaping minds and achieving dreams.
I assure you that with the money raised, I will make the most of my time at Kaiserslautern University of Technology. I will tirelessly pursue and give my best just like I did before, and even more.
I hope you can help me reach my dream.
Thank you and God Bless!
