Career Assessment Test

Buddy4Study: What were the key challenges faced by you during the course of your journey to reach here?

Bhavesh: The major challenge that I faced during my educational journey was fulfilling my academic expenses. Since my mother is the only earning person in our family, her income is not sufficient enough to meet my educational expenses as I am studying in a private college. This problem got solved by Marubeni scholarship.

Buddy4Study: What has been your source of inspiration?

Bhavesh: Former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and Swami Vivekanand are two renowned personalities who are the inspiration of my life. Their qualities like simple living and high thinking inspire me a lot. Also, I consider the difficult situations that test my patience as a source of inspiration.

Buddy4Study: How has your family supported you in your venture to pursue this course?

Buddy4Study - Education Loan

Bhavesh: My family has supported me a lot throughout my journey. In fact, whatever I have been able to study, is only because of their extensive support, especially my mother who has made so many sacrifices to let me complete my education.

Buddy4Study: How did you come to know about the Marubeni Scholarship? What were the steps followed to avail the scholarship?

Bhavesh: I got information about Marubeni Scholarship from Buddy4Study website. As I found myself eligible for this scholarship, I immediately applied for it online through my Buddy4Study account. The Buddy4Study team helped me a lot in getting this scholarship by providing proper guidance at each step of selection. As per the guidance provided by them, I completed each step and finally got selected for this scholarship.

Buddy4Study: What are your ambitions in the future and how do you plan to execute them?

Bhavesh: My long-term goal is to become an IAS officer. To achieve this goal, I need to prepare for the UPSC exam along with my engineering studies. I have started preparing the basics for this exam. Also, I am preparing for the GATE exam so that I can get a good job in public sector companies.

Buddy4Study: Any piece of advice that you would like to impart to other potential aspirants like you who are constrained by various challenges towards pursuing higher education?

Bhavesh: I think I am not ready to answer this question yet because I still have a long journey to accomplish. However, based on my experiences till date, I would advise the students like me that never lose faith in yourself because of any challenge you face. Keep fighting and keep struggling because if there is a will, there is always a way to achieve it.
