New Delhi: 18-year-old Faizan Bhat’s life emphasizes the famous saying of Roy T. Bennett “Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself.” Faizan, who had 3 backlogs in 11th grade, didn’t show up in 12th board exams, got an offer letter from the University of Liverpool to pursue BA (Hons) in International Business .
How it all started
Born in Kashmir, Faizan Shameem Bhat is a Gen z aspiring entrepreneur, writer and a technophile, who grew up as an exceptional student who would get merely passing marks in the school exams but would definitely outperform all the students when it comes to off-school competitions. He says that I’ve always believed in my madness. It has brought me somewhere that no amount of hard work, dedication, or consistency could.
“My schooling took place in Faizan Public School in Baramulla, Kashmir and frankly speaking, my academic record wasn’t a thing to think of home about,” starts Faizan.
At the point when Faizan was growing up, scholastics were tied in with robbing up examples. “If I could go back in time to when I was in the 11th grade, I wouldn’t mind accumulating three more backlogs or skipping the 12th board exams. To be very honest, I’ve never been adherent to the school system. I firmly believe that It annihilate one’s innovativeness and capacity to think critically. It has disreputed the term “Failure” which is presumably the greatest mood killer of this framework” he expressed.
Faizan began his entrepreneurial journey at the young age of 15 with a drop-shipping store outsourcing with a company named “Wooplr”. He later built a social media agency to support small businesses, but everything fell apart when Kashmir’s Article 370 was repealed, causing the Internet to collapse in the region. He says, “I was under 18, therefore I couldn’t open a bank account on my name or file legal papers. This became one of the barriers to my aspirations, but a lot has changed since then as I’m currently working on a stabilised technology-based Start-up with some other good friends.”
The feeling of getting into Liverpool University?
I ain’t a man who will fantasize about getting an offer letter from the best of universities in the world. I’ve never gone for NEET, JEE, or any other competitive exam. I didn’t even give it a thought since I firmly believe that these exams will never serve as the best gauge of a person’s character. I’m fairly confident that I could have made it to any university, including Harvard, but I only ever applied to the University of Liverpool since it has the nicest ambience of all of them. Regarding this proposal, I haven’t made any decision yet. I have a lot of things to think about at once while considering the proposal letter, but all I can say is that it has made everyone around me jiggle, but not me, for sure.
An extensive message by Faizan
Creative aspect of every child should be encouraged by their parents. Of course, marks are important. But it is not a means to an end. Marks don’t matter nearly as much as life. A child ought to develop their inner beauty and spirit. The best approach to handle pressure is something that should be taught in schools.
As crucial as a child’s structural development is their emotional development. The holistic wellness of a student will benefit from social, spiritual, and cognitive development. The emotional and psychological wellbeing of children should be prioritized over academic performance by both parents and teachers.
University of Liverpool
The University of Liverpool is a public research university based in the city of Liverpool, England. Founded as a college in 1881, associated with nine Nobel Prize winners and consistently ranked in the top universities worldwide, Liverpool is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of the UK’s leading research universities with an acceptance rate of 13.9% compared to the University of Cambridge’s 21% acceptance rate, it is evident that receiving an offer letter from the University of Liverpool is more challenging than receiving an offer letter from the University of Cambridge.
