If you can help, or know someone who can...

...this email just in via a friend. Publicise, help, pass on, whatever you can.

Hello Friends,
My name is Jasmina Khanna. I reside in India. I was born with an ailment called Cerebral Palsy.
Due to Cerebral Palsy, both my hands and legs are paralyzed; hence, I am confined to a wheelchair. As you would see in my Résumé, despite all my limitations, I have done everything possible and met the challenges head on. I have just completed my Post Graduation from the Mumbai Bombay University. I have also learnt to work on various computer applications thoroughly. I have been working as a freelancer on several projects for various prestigious companies for the past 8 years now.
I firmly believe in the saying “Where there is a will there is a way.” I have the inner urge and motivation to grow my potential by learning, working, and being independent as much as possible. I want to do my further studies in Canada. But I have financial constraints to pursue the courses that I wish to go in for.
I wish to do a two-year Post Graduation diploma course in Enterprise Content Management in the field of information technology at Humber College based in Toronto, Canada. My expenses for the course amount to around US $15,000 to US $18,000 per year, including the tuition fees and other staying expenses. I would be obliged to get financial aid or scholarship for both the years but I would be grateful even if I get it for at least a year.
This email campaign appeals to each one of you to help me. My most ardent wish today is that this email reaches someone somewhere who will pick up the phone after reading it, or forwards this mail to the right person, who might be able to help me in someway for achieving this difficult but not an impossible task of getting financial aid or scholarship.
You can read articles on me that were published a few years ago from the links given below.
I can be contacted through my following email ids: or
Hoping for a favourable response from you!
Thanking you in anticipation.
Yours Sincerely,
Jasmina Khanna
