G.D. Goenka Public School, Rohini Studying Economics @ University of Manchester, UK
It was an amazing journey at University Connection. It all started 2 years back when I was just a regular CBSE kid deciding which stream to choose and I ended up taking science with Economics as a subject, while my parents always wanted me to take up Science. I had a basic idea in my mind that I wanted to become a pilot and always thought I would easily be able to do Engineering. I was then aiming for top universities in the US for Engineering and to achieve the goal, I started preparing for SAT and unfortunately my score wasn't good and that's when Charu Ma'am advised me to shift my focus to universities in the UK. During that time, I also enrolled myself for a Summer School at University of Warwick and that was the first time I found myself enjoying Economics and found it really fascinating but Engineering was still my goal. Gradually, I realized I was giving too much time to Physics and Chemistry and scoring less than what I was scoring in Economics and then I started self- doubting myself if I should go for Economics. And, then Charu Ma'am suggested me to take a decision after my experience at the Summer School in Germany. After I came back from the Summer School, I remember telling her - "Yes ! It is Economics." Then I applied to 5 universities and got through them all. All thanks to University Connection for helping me to make my dream come true.
