ANUSHKA – 17 years old Female

 

I am in my last year of A levels-studying on a hundred percent scholarship. Despite the fact I am on a scholarship there is still some tuition fees to pay which is quite hard for my family as my mother is the only bread earner and finances are difficult to manage these days.

Previously my fees was paid by GlobalGiving. I am utterly grateful and only because of them I could continue my studies. Due to the fact my fees was paid and I could attend the lectures I got 2A* and 2A in my recent report.

I am currently studying computer sciences and plan to be an aeronautical engineer. MIT has been my dream school since grade 7 and I am applying there. I really hope GlobalGiving can help me pay for MIT just like they helped me before.

As shared before women are 50% of total population and literacy rate is very low less than 28% and in some rural backward areas is 16%. Women literacy mean girls only write their name and read a paragraph. In Pakistan, women have not equal rights of education and boys always get priority. Parents believe that girls are a liability, married and go to her husband him but boys are an investment for secure future and they will take care of parents when becoming older.
