Breaking Barriers: What You Can Do and How

Hustle, hustle, hustle… This is something everyone from every “gully”, and “mohalla” gets to hear every now and then. Hustling is always important to make something big in life, but the little steps towards the ultimate goal, and beyond.

We, at Afstand Education understand all your stories. Read ahead, and you will find exactly what you are looking for. You might not know what, but we understand.

What is that “Sab ke life ki story”?

Birth School College Get a Job Build a life

This is what a “normal” life looks like. Parents, friends, lovers, and relatives, all of them care about you, and want you to succeed. But every desi guy, and girl has to face a lot of barriers in life…

Indian parents have always wanted their sons, and daughters to become engineers, doctors, and lawyers when they grow up. They expect you to get the best scores you can get. Living up to these expectations can be overwhelming, especially when you're just trying to figure out who we are and what we want to do with our lives.

The reservation system in India is also a major buzzkill for students from certain backgrounds. While it is supposed to level the playing field and promote diversity, it often feels like it is working against you.

Money is a big barrier too. College is not cheap, and for many Indian families, the cost of higher education is a major roadblock. Tuition fees, living expenses, books - it all adds up, and not everyone can afford it. Student loans are an option, but the thought of being buried in debt can be scary.

Lastly, not everyone has access to the same resources when it comes to preparing for higher education. Some students have access to top-notch schools, tutors, and study materials, while others are left to fend for themselves. It's like trying to win a game with cheat codes when everyone else has the manual.

When you face these things, you might feel that your fate is sealed. But trust us, it is definitely not!

What Do You Know and What Can You Learn?

The stories of Satya Nadella, Sundar Pichai, Aman Gupta, Peyush Bansal, Vineeta Singh, and others are very well-known. They are supposed to inspire young minds like yours, but in most cases, their stories often make young students, and professionals feel like their goals are very far away.

There are big successes in India, that many people recognize, but do not know about. There are people, who have come out of the masses, and are doing really well in their fields. They are do not come under the category of “the greats” yet, but are definitely going there. Relating to these people will be much easier. Read ahead, and you will definitely feel the “Us bro, us” vibe.
