    As a mature British born Hindu student, still trying to pass basic level exams, unfortunately here in the UK, I have continued to face racism and discrimination even to this day and my appeals do not work. I am a serious minority. There are no other Hindus in my class but plenty of Muslims and yet I get tied into the sane stereotypes and boxes because of my unfortunate Indian genetic colour. I just want equal opportunities. I started out as a fairly competent academic student as a youngster. But years of worsened hate,mockery,neglect,racism and wrongdoing towards have left me as a failing, unconfident, struggling, nervous, adult student. How can I get justice and change?

    I am not from an educated nor employed family, I am of a very corrupt, damaged, disabled, disadvantaged family, with unstable parents, no other family and zero friends, I am unemployed, still trying to make something of my life rhriugh education as no one offering me an apprenticeship or job, and I was unknowingly and unfairly withdrawn, when from a GCSE CLASS too, that's only a casual 3 hour a week (not even that) , for which I would get buses to and from in evening, and I never got any FINANCIAL HELP.

    It would be amazing to manifest educated scholars just like yourselves who understand and are taking action against the very real yet subtley hidden racism against Hindu students but moreover I just wish to be surrounded by well educated, well rounded, well travelled, open minded who can enrich my quality of life. Maybe in another life?
