I am the eldest of 5 kids and the responsibility bringing us up was with my mother alone (as my father Nabila had expired in 1995).
S S Patri sir , ( my facilitator, whom I did not know before I met him for the first time in 2000 while applying for FFE scholarship ensured that I not only got the required financial help from FFE on time but also acted as a trusted mentor ensuring I am committed to achieving my goals. He remained a family well wisher to this day.
The hardships I went through during my studies: I was in 9th standard when I lost my father. I had 2 younger brothers and 2 younger sisters. The youngest was just 1 year old. Though I was topper in my school and 12th standard studies I got a government engineering B E seat. My mother Mumtazbegum (who is illiterate) had no means to take care of my educational expenses. One of my classmate’s fathers introduced me to Patri sir and there after it was FFE which took care of all my educational expenses. I got assistance for 4 years at a time when my own relatives would not offer even kind words of encouragement.
Here I am by the grace of Almighty and through the timely assistance of FFE working as SAP Practice Lead at Highstreet IT Solutions India. Have had the privilege of having worked with MNCs like BOSCH, SAP, HCL.
