Follow You Dream


Since childhood it has been my goal to get an engineering degree from a renowned university like NED University of Engineering and Technology. It was a joy moment for me when I was accepted in my dream institution to pursue a degree in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department.

I have already completed two years of my engineering degree achieving A grades. Recently after the death of my beloved father this dream seems to be more challenging.

I came to know about Koshish Foundation through my class advisor and applied for the scholarship. I and thankful to Safiya and Sharifuddin Pirzada Scholarship for making it easy for me to continue to work towards my goal.

It has been my dream to be an engineer. After passing HSC with good marks I got admission in NED University of Engineering & Technology. I was very happy because I knew NED was a great institute to fulfill my dream. I was also worried because in absence of my father I have faced financial problems. My father passed away when I was only 12 years old and it has been challenging journey through out my life. I am so thankful to Koshish Foundation for offering me Safiya and Sharifuddin Pirzada Scholarship. This scholarship gives me confidence to continue to work hard towards my dream.

As a student of NED University of Engineering & Technology my goal is to complete my graduation in Civil Engineering with excellence and serve my country. To achieve my goal I have been working very hard. The finances have been a big obstacle for me. I thank Safiya and Sharifuddin Pirzada Scholarship for enabling me to overcome this obstacle.

Entering the world of Information Technology has been the dream of my life. I have worked really hard to achieve my dream. Last year I got admission in NED University of Engineering and Technology and now I am a first year student in Software Engineering Department. The route to achieving a goal requires constant hard work. It has not been an easy journey for me either. My father expired when I was just 6 year old. Henceforth, my mother took the share of my father on her shoulders.

I appreciate the assistance offered by Koshish Foundation, Safiya and Shariffuddin Pirzada Scholarship would greatly help me in completing my education and ultimately realizing my dream.

-- Syeda Sadaf
