Sponsored

I had really tried applying for all manner of sponsorship that existed in this world but none of them had replied to me.Two years down the line some of them had not yet eve replied to me. In January 8th this year, a friend of mine came to me with an advertisement from the Ministry of Higher education about a sponsorship of the Indian government to Kenyan students. I quickly silenced him and infact I avoid topic but he insisted that I apply for the sponsorship because I qualified.Okay I just did as a by the way and five months later,I received a letter of confirmation that I had qualified for the sponsorship.I did not believe the news but there it was I had qualified.
