I am Sundararajan. My family, well it's very small - my mother and myself. My mother works as an Accountant in a Private Company. My father passed away 9 years ago and since then my mother was facing issues financially for my higher studies. And about myself, I scored 463 out of 500 in my 10th Board Exam and 1110 out of 1200 in my 12th Board Exam and I always wanted to pursue a career in Maritime Industry. Ascend Educational Foundation came forward to support my education and maritime training courses financially and otherwise. The regular counseling by the mentor and the Annual Review Program conducted by Ascend gave me adequate guidance and confidence to go through my academic program successfully. Now after 3 years of higher education, I am placed in a highly reputed shipping company with a good salary. Thanks to Ascend Educational Foundation. They have changed my life’s trajectory for sure.
My name is M Jaya. My father works as Security in a Private Company. I joined Ehiraj College for my graduation when Ascend started offering me scholarship. It helped me to complete my course without any issue. Ascend also helped me to understand the values of other skills I needed once I complete my college degree, which played an important role in securing a job. The sessions I had with my mentor gave me a chance to know the skills and other areas of improvement and it also encouraged me to learn new things and acquire better knowledge of the world after my college days. The meetings I had helped me a lot. All these gave me the confidence not only to go through my B.Com, Corporate Secretaryship program successfully but also to face interviews. Currently I am working as Customer Service and Operation Analyst in Natwest Group. Thanks Ascend for whatever you have done to me and my family.
Hello! I am Chelsea Rajanayagam doing my Under-graduation in the Department of Information Technology in Women’s Christian College. To tell about my family, it’s a very small one - my father, mother and myself. And my hobbies are gardening and collecting information. Through my college campus recruitment process I got a placement in Cognizant Technology Solutions, more popularly known as CTS.
I always wanted to pursue a career in Information Technology and hence my natural choice for my undergrad was IT. While starting my under graduation I was also determined that I should pursue my masters in IT. However, I was also very clear that I would prefer to do my Masters through correspondence after getting myself placed in good organisation after my under-graduation, for the reason that there was a certain necessity on me to start earning as early as possible owing to the economic consideration of my family. Ascend Educational Foundation had extended a helping hand, starting from high school days, by financially supporting my education. Further my mentor from Ascend, had gone a long way in guiding me through my education and also had provided me enough counselling, which enabled me to secure a placement in a reputed organisation.
I have two long term vision:
