Right to Education

When I was a child my father used to tell me “Dream and dream big”. That left long-lasting imprints on my mind and I started dreaming big without knowing the harsh realities of 21st century free market economy. At that time, I did not realize that I will grow up dreaming big without considering anything as a hinderance in my way up to a point where it all shattered. One day after my metric results it dawned upon me that there is something called wealth which decides the destiny of thousands of young students like myself. So cruel but true; I realized that not everyone gets lucky enough to have born with a silver spoon in their mouths but that was not an excuse I was going to cling to for the rest of my life. Although true but how could that be a hinderance in achieving my goal? In the quest of living your dream one may have to live its nightmares first. No one will hand you your dream, one needs to strive, go through the hardships it entails to see the best and in order to really know the real value it holds.

Coming from a humble beginning I have realized the true value of dreams. In a family of 6, my father is the only one putting food on the table, yet he never made me feel less fortunate. He taught me to dream, and then gave me hope that I can if I want, and I started to dream. I always dreamt about going abroad for education as most children do, and then with hope I started to work towards my dream. During my time as student in Pakistan I saw so much disparity in the world where I lived that it made me sad and helpless because I was only a student, who did not have much to fulfill her own wishes. But this did not stop me from thinking about others also, about those students whose parents could hardly manage to survive. Alongside my father, they were also a great inspiration for me in my early years to push hard to do something for these people. But first I had to equip myself with the necessary tools to do that. One day I realized that merely getting a degree from Pakistan will not help me with my dream. From that moment on I decided not to look back and worked really hard to secure funding for my plan to study abroad.
I finished school and applied abroad for universities, things didn’t work out mostly financially, so I decided to put the dream aside until the opportunity comes and the time is right. I went to medical school in Pakistan for the last two years. Everything was going as well as it could’ve been with the resources, I had but my dream always kept pinching me. After years now the time has arrived to take my first step towards my lifelong goal.
With hope early this year I applied to different universities and I got what I wanted, an “acceptance letter”. I had mixed feelings, did not know whether to cry or smile. But I have never been hopeless and have felt helpless. Even after getting the university’s highest scholarship I was still unable to pay my semester fee, but it was not an excuse for me to give up after coming this far. I started applying for other scholarships and donations and am still in the process of hearing back. I am fully confident that one day I will be able go to Grand Canyon University in Arizona. The creation of this go fund me page is also an appeal to those who can help and do believe that I have the right to a chance of achieving my dream to please help me financially.
Please donate in this cause with as much as you can, so that I could achieve my dream. I will put in my best of efforts not to disappoint you.
Remember every penny takes me a step closer to my dream. please do not procrastinate. I need the money gathered as soon as possible so that I can start getting things done.
