by Amit Wadhwa

Scholarships are very popular among the students who are looking to study abroad. These students are basically known as International students. International student scholarships are very competitive to secure.

    Lady, please correct your silly mistakes before to proceed to take the leap of faith. When you write anything in capital, make sure it is spelt correctly. EFFACT ?? Really?
    The first letter in your father's name is in small letters? Great !!!
    Speech competition
    What kind of competition is this? Extempore ???

    Pray to God that your interviewer is not my replica !!!!

    Regards,
    Chris

    P.S.: I do not have any ill regards towards you. But you should, at the very least, make your resume a flawless one lest you do not infuriate the interviewer.
