“Initially, I want to thank you from the core of my heart for selecting me. In upcoming days I will try my best to prove that you have made a fair selection.

It has been more than two months that I’m studying at PAHS. During these many days, I have cooperated with my new friends, seniors, and teachers. Teachers have been praising me due to my good tasks and hard work as well. I have by promise to keep it up in days to come. I have actively participated in my first slum posting at Shantinagar “Jagarantole”.  Faculty members and my friends praised me.  I am very thankful to them.  It was really remarkable moment of my life. Finally, I again want to thank you for selecting me on this scholarship scheme.”
