Nothing You Can't Do

"I am telling you, one day you will be as successful as your dad"
"What if I can't ?"
"There is nothing you can't do. Its not about where you are, its about where you want to be" 
That was my grandfather inspiring me when I was 12 years old. I have a very educationally rich background. Both of my grandparents were teachers, an uncle who has an MBA apart from his engineering degree, an aunt who is a PhD in Mathematics and she got an award from the President for her research paper. And, then there is my father who is the eldest in the family and probably the only one with a Bachelor's degree. He couldn't get a Master's because of financial constraints, but he more than made up for it by his amazing success in the private sector.

Ever since I entered college to do my engineering I knew I wanted to do Masters too. Not doing Masters was never even an option. In fact, I was preparing to send out my applications for Fall 2014 session, but due to a strange turn of events I couldn't. My plan has been halted for some years but that does not mean I have given up on it. The reason I am waiting is that I don't want to adjust with my education, I want the best of everything.

I want to do Master Of Science (MS) in Software Engineering and it would be a dream come true if I could do it from Imperial College London. As I was preparing for my Graduate applications, I spent the last six months searching about different colleges and the different courses they offered. And, I just knew that if I was going to do my Masters from UK, it had to be from Imperial College London.
Not only does it provide some of the best courses, it is located in Central London which would provide me with a great opportunity to explore the city and expand my horizons.

I don't know when or how my plan will unfold, but I am hope it goes the way I want it to. My grandfather is not with us anymore, but I am sure the day I get my Masters he will be looking down at me and beaming with pride
