A Dream to Study Abroad
July 27 2011
While working at Sony Playstation Store @ Chennai, life used to be pretty ordinary - slogging all day at the office, sharing a rented room at Chennai and visiting home twice monthly. I was sick of the routine life, was looking for a change. Like every Indian graduate, even I too had a dream to study abroad and the time felt wrong for that dream to take shape.
First choice was America, because my brother were settled over there. My field of interest was Hardware Engineering, so America was the most favorite choice, because it has got several world-renowned computer makers.
Learning American english was my next step but one of my uncles cautioned me that getting admission into American Universities is not a child's play and they don't give visa that easily. He then narrated his daughter's UK success story and suggested me to opt for Britain. After graduating, I can apply for jobs in America or other European countries. Thats when I decided that UK will be my destination for further education.
It was a struggle for my father to get my education loan sanctioned from State Bank of India and with a score of 7.5 in IELTS exam, I didn't got an admission, I experienced my first failure journey, which I will share as my next blog post....
A series of blog posts will slowly unfold my life over the years of my failures...!.
