I am G.Meenakshisundaram. I feel proud to be FFE alumni. I received FFE scholarship for three years (from 2000 till 2002). When I was in my eleventh grade, due to bad financial condition, my parents found it difficult to make ends meet and to afford my school fees. My school teacher Ms. Rama Subramanian introduced me to my FFE facilitator Mr. M. Raghupathy. This was a turning point in my life. With FFE scholarships and motivation given by my FFE facilitator, I focused on my studies and scored high marks in 12th standard exams and Engineering entrance exams. I got admitted in to the engineering program of the prestigious Madras Institute of Technology, Anna University. Due to my good academic performance in college, I got another scholarship. Consequently, I opted out of FFE scholarship after completing my first year at college.
I stayed in touch with my FFE facilitator who continued to motivate me and provided me with the right guidance to achieve my goals. I feel that FFE as an organization provides more than monetary assistance to deserving students. Through its selfless facilitators, FFE provides motivation and guidance for students to become true leaders in their chosen fields. After finishing B.E., I did M.Tech in IIT Delhi. Currently, I am working with leading semiconductor company, Bangalore as Hardware Design Engineer.
