“It is important to sometimes experience failure to completely value success.” Wallowing in self-pity at that moment I didn’t completely comprehend the strength of my father’s encouraging words, but three and a half years later I am a living example of the same.
One of the lowest phases of my life was when after the completion of my undergraduate program in Commerce I applied for a postgraduate program to the UK. My student visa application was denied in December 2008, on the basis of insufficient funds. Admittedly it was very difficult for me to watch my friends claim the future we had planned together. Yet after the initial frenzy abated it was easy for me to see that it was a half-baked attempt on my end. My reason for applying stemmed more from peer pressure than the want of a comprehensive quality education and it wasn’t just funds that the authorities were not convinced about. Today I look back at that time as one of the biggest learning experiences of my life. A single child I had a privileged upbringing and it wasn’t until then that I learnt the value of commitment and hard work. I am now prepared to take a second chance, this time for all the right reasons, this time with all my heart!
My father, Mr.is a graduate in Bachelors of Commerce and is currently working as an Accounting Consultant and my mother, Mrs. is a homemaker. I am the only son of my parents and my parents have great expectations from me. They don’t want to leave any stone unturned for making my future stable and full of flying colours. On my end I have never tried to let them down.
My parents enrolled me in M. T. Jariwala Madhyamik Shala from where I completed my secondary, higher secondary as well as high school. As a child I was very active and stubborn. After completing my schooling I took admission in Sir K. P. College of Commerce, Surat in the year 2005 and completed my graduation in commerce.
Along with my Bachelors program in Commerce...
