    The first Internship of my life and that to in a start-up company gave me a woo… feeling in my life. It is still going on as it is for 2months. After getting so great experience by working with experienced delegates. It helped me to develop my self-confidence. Now i know something about myself because here i got an opportunity to explore myself. Happiness to earn your first stipeh nd was like yess… i have achieved something in my life.

    But let me say you its not always a happy story about your first stipend. I lost my first stipend after getting the whole amount in my bank. as i was the victim of cybercrime. I know it is the saddest of sad thing when your first stipend goes in such a way that you feel like everything has finished. But still i tried everything and could recover just 3k out of all amount i lost. Before loosing my stipend i was about to buy some beautiful clothes for my parents and i have already given my small bro a watch on his birthday by my savings on his birthday. I gave my recovered amount to my dad and told him to shop what he actually want at that time. After whatever happend i have a long way to go.
