“Technology excites me a lot and this is the reason why I chose to major in Information Technology. I want to become a developer and I am moving in that direction; I have learnt front-end development and two languages (C and C++) within first three month of my course !. I have also started competitive programming, another field that I am interested in.

I have no one in my family who has tech related background. I studied in a small school due to our financial condition and even faced a serious health issue just before my engineering entrance exam. However, these challenges have never been able to deter my hunger for learning. Being selected for the AFE-FFE Scholarship program has given me hopes which I truly wish to fulfill in the next few years. The AFE -FFE scholarship, has lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on learning. It has inspired me to help others and give back to the community and I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me achieve mine.”

“I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to Amazon India who helped me with the AFE Scholarship to lead my academic career without any obstacles and helping my parents financially. This scholarship not only helped me with monetary assistance but also by providing me access to career relevant courses. As a result of this scholarship award I was able to concentrate on my studies and scored a 9.16 GPA in the first semester. I am willing to get placed with reputed company like Amazon in the future and become a successful software engineer. Being the scholarship recipient I am willing to make a powerful contribution in the society as well by helping more students like myself.”

“I am very thankful to Amazon and FFE for choosing me for the AFE scholarship because of which I am able to do what was really not possible because of my family’s financial constraints. This scholarship is helping me and my parents live a stress free life and is allowing me to concentrate on my studies.

I am improving my coding skills and looking for good internship to get a better placement. I want to be financial independent as soon as possible and take the responsibilities of my family and educate my younger brothers. Everyday I am trying to be a better version of myself. I promise that I’ll make myself competent enough to have power to make a change in other’s life.”
