“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffet

I believe in hard work, discipline, and persistence. I have seen my father work day and night to achieve the best results. Under his leadership and guidance, he has transformed two different mining projects from low production capacity to award-winning production capabilities. I have always idolised my father as my mentor and “guru” and whatever I have achieved so far is because of him. 

I have always participated in an activity to win, to give my best, and to reap results. I have learned through my internships and projects that handwork, obsession, a sense of responsibility and belongingness is what makes a good team player and achiever. This has particularly helped me during my Formula SAE project where my team designed, realised and tested a single-seater racing car. This car was entirely manufactured by us and we were in charge of the project from design to the marketing stages. We, as a team, had to finish our job in a stipulated time period, making both business and managerial decisions in the process. We could build a race car in just GBP 3500 which was a great achievement in itself. The event was conducted in Italy where our team finished 8th worldwide in the marketing event. We received accolades from judges from automotive giants such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Fiat, Pirelli, and Dallara.

I am also the undergraduate student representative of placement committee in our institute. I am the only undergraduate student out of 900 students to be selected for the placement committee. Not only this but I was also the core committee member of annual college magazine committee where my team could finish the job before the deadline and receive recognition from faculty for our good work. I have won many competitions and represented our institute at many levels. I have also made a voluntary contribution with NGO for the welfare of underprivileged children and old age people. I teach mathematics and social science to these kids and spend time at old age homes, talking and listening to the people staying there.

The tuition fees for the program I am applying is GBP 22500 for overseas candidates. My father is a salaried person and hence I have no other option but to ask the bank for full tuition loan plus extra loan so as to pay partly for my personal expenses. 

If selected for the program, I hope to receive financial aid from Cranfield University, with trepidation, am asking you to consider my candidacy for Cranfield South Asia Merit Scholarship in Leadership and Management.
