Life is full of ups and downs but the never giving up attitude facilitates in making a person stronger. Being an immigrant I also faced several hardships that shaped me into the person I am today. I remember the time when my family planned to shift to the US so that I and my siblings can have a better future. I was very happy as being a teenager I never really thought about the difficulties that were lying ahead. Although, I was a bit sad to leave my hometown yet still I was very excited and curious to move to a new country. When we came to the US my parents wanted me to take admission to the school as soon as possible so that I can continue with my studies without wasting time. I already completed twelfth grade from my previous school yet When I went to take admission the administration put me in class ninth. It was very devastating for me as my three years were all wasted. The sole reason behind this was my language. I was unable to speak the English language as it was not my mother tongue. Due to this, I was homeschooled. I also registered in several coaching classes to learn English and then joined ACC to take English classes. Initially, I never had any friends because of my lack of English speaking ability. People often used to make fun of my accent and ridiculed me in the class. I still remember that on the first day of a class, when the teacher asked everyone to introduce themselves I was unable to do so. This made me a laughing stock and I left the class. I was going through an extremely tough phase of my life. However, the next day with new hope I again entered the class. I was again bullied yet one of my classmates came forward and helped me. He and my teachers motivated me a lot due to which I worked hard and graduated from ACC with distinction. After learning the English language, I became more confident while communicating with other people. I made a lot of new friends although I was constantly judged because of my accent yet still I managed to overcome this issue.
Since childhood, I was fascinated with the latest technologies and had a lot of interest in computers. It was a dream to pursue a computer science degree. While shifting to the US I was happy that I can get a degree in computer science from a reputed and well-known institute. However, with hard work and dedication, I got admission to a well-reputed institute. After getting admission I again face discrimination regarding my accent. The constant criticism on something that is not my fault made me very depressed because despite learning the English language I was unable to speak the way most Americans do. At this breaking point of my life, I motivated myself again and went again to take my classes. After a constant struggle, I completed my computer science degree. That day was the happiest day of my life as I achieved what I have always dreamt of. Also, achieving a degree from a reputed organization helps in getting several decent job opportunities. Currently, I am doing an internship in a local computer store while planning to apply to the UT. I have already started my preparations so that I could utilize this opportunity and can make a successful career for myself. I am confident that I will be selected. All my life I have constantly being demotivated and bullied by others yet still I managed to overcome all these issues. Thus, if a person works hard with full dedication and commitment he or she can achieve their dreams.
