Rakhnaza is a student of AUCA and below is her story:
My name is Rakhnaza. I have graduated the Educational Complex Gymnasium No20 this year. I had excellent marks in all school subjects and actively participated in social life of my school.
This year, I enrolled the American University of Central Asia. To become part of AUCA was the main goal of my life.
As I was really active in social life of my school, I believe that this experience will much help me to be an active participant of social life at the American University of Central Asia. The activities I was involved in were: volunteering in different events devoted to corruption, unemployment, AIDs control, etc.
I also took an active part in Olympiads in such subjects as: Chemistry, Economics and Physics. However, my family cannot afford to cover the full tuition at AUCA. Therefore, I would like to take an opportunity and apply for financial support to Kiva.
I hope all the above mentioned experience will make it easy to be a student of such a prestigious University as AUCA.
