Help Robert to go to University College London

Hello, I am Robert Gevorgyan. 

I am a passionate student who is interested in computers and tech. It always was my passion. That passion brought me to the point that I got into one of the top 20 universities in the world: University College London (UCL). 

However, I have a big issue. I cannot cover all the tuition by myself. I am from Gyumri, from a family of 6, and my family cannot provide me with tuition support. In fact, I worked while pursuing my undergraduate degree at the American University of Armenia to help my family with our needs. I supported my family while also maintaining a high GPA of 3.93 (out of possible 4) during my studies. 

I've applied to several scholarships, and I am hopeful I will get those. I've applied to the "My Step" Foundation, which will hopefully cover 50% of my tuition and living expenses (around $25.000) in total and to the "Huys" foundation, which will provide around $2000. 

It feels very surreal for me because I have dreamed of studying in London since high school. I took the first step in the right direction. Yet, I will need more support to make my lifelong dream of studying in London come true. The total estimated tuition and living expenses for studying at UCL is around $60000. I need YOUR help to cover the remaining of the costs to take this one time opportunity of mine. The classes start at the end of September, which, sadly, leaves no much time to spare. 

I will pursue a degree in MSc in Quantum Technologies at UCL. My goal is to become a researcher in the Quantum Computing field. The field is very young and has a vast potential for changing the world. Quantum computing promises advancements in the pharmaceutical field, better and more environment-friendly fertilizers, and many more. My goal is to learn and do research in this area, thus contributing to the betterment of human lives worldwide and in my country. I intend to teach what I will learn to more students in Armenia, so when the future comes banging our door, we will already be ready for it. We know that Armenia's primary resource is people, so I am confident that I will help my country's development I want Armenia to become a research hotspot for quantum technologies, attracting more investments and, hopefully, more IT-related fields to develop in Armenia. 

My whole life, I believed that knowledge and education are the ultimate power and the best key to development. I received many awards from Maths, Physics, and Geography olympiads during my school years. I took the same spirit to AUA and my workplace, being one of the top 5 students among my classmates while also being an accomplished software engineer. The companies I worked (and currently am working) for always had the same goal as I do - making the world a better place.

I always appreciated the role of communities in people's life. The sharing of thought, knowledge, and experience is one of the most magical things I've ever seen. That is why, besides my work and studying, I also managed to be the part of iterate hackerspace, teaching people how to code and helping them to boost their careers. Knowing that I have a small contribution to someone else's success is one of the most empowering things. 

And now, the time has come for me to ask for YOUR empowerment and support. I need YOUR  small contribution to help me continue my journey in the academic field. To help me become a researcher. To help me make my dream finally come true. To help me have my small contribution to making the world a better place. 

You will always have my sincere gratitude for any contribution. I promise that I will excel in my studies, for you, for my country, for humanity and myself.
