This is Abhinav Jain. I am 21 years old. I completed my Grade 10 with 92.8 % marks in total and my Grade 12 with 90.3 % marks. I had A+ grades in English literature and grammar . I always wanted to go to college to study Creative writing ever since I read Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. I started loving everything about literature and the portrayal of so many emotions that we go through. I wanted to connect to People in the same way too. But sadly my parents could not afford sending me to any of the top colleges I got accepted to and since we are in a very tight spot i had to give up my dream and go into Merchant navy. Being in Merchant Navy is very hard. I have to stay away from the real world for 7-8 months at a stretch with a gap of only a few months in between before I am put back again on a cargo ship. I have negligible contact with anyone back home or any of my friends. I feel so alone in the vast ocean. I have to work 14 to 18 hours a day onboard the vessel under the harsh ocean sun doing menial jobs like removing the rust on the steel body of the ship, cleaning out cargo,painting, etc. whether it is bad weather out in the ocean or the ship is riding waves much higher than herself. And at the end of the month after working 28 to 29 days I get paid 400 $ which is too small of an amount. With this I am barely able to help my family lest save up money for college. I am now stuck with nowhere to go. If I am able to raise this much money I will be able to pursue my dream and quit the Merchant Navy. I will work to my fullest back on land while in college to keep studying and also support my family and my little sister. If God-willing I will get my own novels published and then I would proudly say that I could not have done this without all the generous people here at rockethub
