Mehwish is a young woman from Pakistan who has benefited from a Wedu funding thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I am Mehwish from Pakistan and currently, I am in my final undergraduate year with a major in Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Asian University for Women. This semester, I am participating in an exchange programme at the University of Trento, Italy.

My interests lie in the analytical study of International Relations to understand the dynamics of security issues around the globe. I am highly involved with the Debating Society and Model United Nations Club of my university to better understand and discuss various discerning political issues.  In addition, I am very passionate about travelling to explore and learn from diverse cultures through a pluralistic approach.

Currently, I am doing my exchange semester in Italy and I am very much eager to explore the enriched culture present here. Alongside that, I am a Wedu mentee and a part of their Global Mentorship Programme and I am immensely grateful to have such a supportive experience with my mentor. I am hopeful to implement the leadership skills learned through both my exchange semester as well as my experience with Wedu towards bringing about a positive impact in the world. Without the funding provided, it would not have been possible for me to take a step in the right direction.”

We want to send our deepest gratitude to you for supporting this effect and helping us by donating to the Sujata Baskota Honor Education Funding. Your contribution directly supports women like Mehwish by allowing them to focus on their studies and follow their dreams to create positive social change. Thanks to you we have been able to raise a total of $6,283 in online donations to contribute towards scholarships and funding, an amount that can provide financial support to more Rising Stars this year than ever before.

Sambridhi is a young woman from Nepal who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I am Sambridhi from Nepal and I am a recent graduate with a major in Marketing from the University of Colorado, United States of America.

Although I am in marketing, I have always been passionate about issues concerning gender equity and girl education, therefore, I have been an advocate in my own little ways by participating in dialogues or becoming a medium and a voice to the ones who need it the most.

Being a part of Wedu has led me to many resources and among all of it, finding funding opportunities has been crucial to me, especially as I have been struggling to pay off the final cost of my graduate degree.

I look forward to using my writing and communication skills in the future, to empower women and young girls, not just locally but globally as well.”

Afruza is a young woman from Bangladesh who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I am Afruza from Bangladesh and I am currently in my final year of BSc in Biotechnology at BRAC University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. I have been a Rising Star from January, 2018. Since then every time I needed support in my academic or professional life, I could always look up to Wedu, my mentor and my fellow Rising Stars. Wedu has become a constant support system and a boost to confidence. The journey so far has been amazing and I look forward to being a part of Wedu for a long time.

Wedu’s Leadership Programme has motivated me to take steps towards contributing to my own community. I have started a social business in Bangladesh named ‘Protibha’. Protibha aims to empower women residing in marginalized locations of the country through developing their crafting skills. Through channelizing their handicrafts to the urban market, Protibha has created a sustainable earning opportunity for 40 women till date.

When a family situation was forcing me to apply for an academic loan to continue my undergraduate degree regardless of any financial uncertainty, I approached Wedu instead. This was because I genuinely love the process of how their funding works. One day I hope to be able to support a young woman’s education too. 

Right after I graduate, I would like to pursue a job in the National Laboratory. Studying Biotechnology while being involved in several volunteering opportunities in local NGOs, I have realized my inner urge to serve the development sector of my country through supporting the healthcare system. I look forward to pursuing a career in a position where I will be able to serve the community in terms of fighting against disease and enhancing nutritional value of conventional foods.”

Akanksha is a young woman from India who has benefited from a Wedu scholarship thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I am Akanksha from Nepal and recently, I have just finished my  Masters in Business Administration from Said Business School, University of Oxford. I have also been awarded the prestigious Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) visa by Tech Nation to continue working in the United Kingdom.

I aspire to create much greater social and environmental impact with my work within the Tech for Good sector, especially with a focus on EdTech, Gender Lens Investing, and Impact Investments in emerging economies. I see myself as an instrument in creating more meaningful impacts in this world. I was always driven by a sense of giving back to the community; headstrong and standing for what was right. FISA has empowered me to keep achieving my goals and make a positive impact.

I am a Wedu Rising Star and I have been blessed with amazing mentors with whom I still keep in touch. I decided to apply for FISA to seek help to pay for my visa and secure my future, as well as of those whom I will continue to support with my work in the impact sector.”

Karma is a young woman who has benefited from Wedu funding thanks to your help. This is her story:

“I was born in Thimphu, the capital city of a small country called Bhutan. I studied in Bhutan until year 12 which I completed in 2015 living with my parents. Then In 2016, I started a big venture in my life, which was going to Australia with a big aspiration to become a doctor so that someday I can help all the people regardless of where they come from and what their ethnicity is. 

I started off with the diploma in nursing from an institute called Institute of Health and Nursing Australia in Sydney which was for 2 years. Then in February 2019, I continued with a Bachelor of Nursing degree in a university called the University of Technology Sydney from where  I intend to graduate in December 2020.

As a Rising Star, I hope I can learn a lot of new things from the global mentorship program and help the people who are in need with my nursing knowledge, alongside the guidance from my mentor. I believe I can become a doctor one day with the support I have from people around me as well as Wedu.

Wedu’s funding will mainly help me pay off my tuition fees and cover my living expenses throughout the year until I graduate. Without Wedu, I would not be able to pursue my dreams and my career like today.”
