Fund for education at University of California, San Diego

From Katyayinee Richhariya

I'm raising money for my younger sister's bachelor's at the University of California, San Diego. All the money would be used to cover her tuition fees and book supplies.

More Info

Hello Folks,

This is Katyayinee Richhariya, a postgraduate student at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy (Tufts University). On March 18, 2022; my younger sister Kamayani Richhariya got accepted to one of the most prestigious research universities in the world, the University of California, San Diego as a prospective physics major. She intends to double major in physics and computer science with a minor in mathematics. As an international student and an Indian citizen, she is ineligible for financial aid provided by the university and most of the scholarships. Being from a middle-class Indian family, paying the cost of attendance for my sister isn’t feasible for us since we have already taken out a loan for my education. This period of struggle marks the beginning of a new journey and your help would be much appreciated! After all, leaders are made out of struggles.

About Kamayani

She is a 17-year-old enthusiastic problem solver and a curious learner. Currently, she is researching the utilization of Tellurium nanoparticles for long-term usage of solar cells, with her team in The Junior Academy challenge organized by the New York Academy of Sciences. Being actively involved in creating awareness about Mental Health as The Director of Interact Club, she has taken a step forward by building a website as a one-stop solution for mental health-related issues with her team. She is a Kathak dancer and has performed in various shows under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment and at DD National (India's National television channel).

Our current financial situation

We are a family of four, with my father being the only earning member. Having taken a loan of around $46,347 to fund my education and covering the other half of my tuition and full living expenses through his salary and borrowings from relatives, he is currently ineligible for a loan to fund my sister’s education. With a heavy heart, we have no other option left except for fundraising. 

I thank you all, on behalf of my family, for taking the time to consider our request.
