In 2010, I applied for a summer internship in Standford University in the United States of America. Actually, this chance was given by our university. Firstly, they asked all the students to apply, so I did. Further, I was asked to write about a woman who has inspired me, so I wrote about Clara Barton, who was the founder of the American Red Cross Organization. She is an important woman for me since she also had a speech disability just like me. (see the essay)
I was so happy when I got a mail from our provost saying that I got selected for the interview. They have selected 15 undergraduate 2nd year students from 160 in total. Last Thursday, I had my interview; I am so much confident to say that I talked very well though I stammered at some points. This is the very first time I faced to an important interview.
For sure, in near soon, I will let you all know whether I got selected or not.
Smile with your Failures…. 🙂
