Hi, my name is Kwame.
I am a 21-year-old in university and also in full-time work.
I have been blessed to be able to get married to an amazing woman soon, and my goal is to go into marriage debt-free, develop myself as an individual, and develop skills that will aid me in providing for her and our future. In the process of all of this, I have had to redo a year at university without attendance so I can catch up with the required points to develop to the second year of my degree, as well as move into my first rented property, where I hope my fiancé will join me when we get married.
Unfortunately, this has brought me about £7k in total debt; £4k of that debt was from having to leave university in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic, worsening my mental health and almost ending my life. I get worried and go back and forth with GOD, wondering if I will get out of this, but I trust and believe that this is only temporary.
I continue to keep my resilience growing and do my absolute best in an attempt to pay off this debt and prepare for the future. I currently work two jobs and six days a week to be able to keep afloat in life right now with bills, attempting to save for a wedding, which has unfortunately not been very successful, as well as trying to pay off this debt, which still leaves my bank account in the minus several times in the month.
In all honesty, it felt wrong to ask for help because I have always had the mindset of figuring things out by myself. Nevertheless, upon breaking that mindset, I realized I needed to ask for help to get to a point where I could develop myself, use that as a testimony, and one day be in a position to help others in the same way. Any help that is hopefully received is greatly and truly appreciated, and I thank you ever so much for your help.
Thank you once again for taking the time to read my story, and may GOD bless you.
