Hello, I am a third-year Mechanical engineering student in MIT, Manipal university, Manipal. I come from an average middle-class family supported by my Father. My Father is a software engineer and was the general manager in a dairy company. Due to unfair corporate politics, my father had to resign from his job in March 2016. We were fairly optimistic in the beginning that my father will be able to find another job pretty soon. But as time passed we found ourselves to be less and less optimistic and job headhunters took advantage of our desperation and scammed us off quite a lot of money. It has been over a year since my father resigned from his previous job and he is still without a job. Although he keeps reassuring me that he has enough funds to fund my college, I am sure that my family does not have enough fund to help me finish my Bachelor's degree. I am a good student and I am striving to finish my bachelor's degree so that I can help my family financially after I am finished with college.
