“Last April, my daughter went to Cedar Crest College in Pennsylvania to take admission and all of a sudden I got a call from her. She informed me that she forgot to carry her residential proof (all thanks to her forgetful nature). As we reside in Texas and it was urgent; I almost had a nervous breakdown thinking about the solution. Then my sister suggested me to scan and send the document to her mail so that she was able to submit it. That day, I understood the value of modern technology; truly!”
