Parent’s Occupation:Private employee (Mother)
“My father, who was an army man, lost his life a few years back. My mother got a job in his place on compassionate grounds. The income was barely enough to support me and my sister’s education. However, I always excelled in studies and was a rank holder consistently.
After completing my B.Tech, I prepared for management exams and got into a reputed B-school. To fund my higher education, I took a loan. Still, it’s financially hard because there are many things that one needs in a B-school ranging from a good formal wear to extra courses to enhance one’s resume.”
The scholarship provided by IDFC FIRST Bank has helped me manage my day to day expenses, which were otherwise taking a toll on my studies and mental health. This financial aid has pushed me in the right direction towards a brighter and better future. ”
