I am a girl and come from Southeast Asian country. Growing up in a conservative typical Asian family means I have a very bad mental health condition.
Being in a conservative society, where you’ll see young adult getting married as a way to be ‘free’ from the parents and I strongly object this kind of cycle. I opt to step off our culture norm.
After countless thought of suicide, I finally get up and try to put my life back together. ‘I desperately need to go out from here’, that’s what I’ve been telling to myself after every sheds of tears.
I always have passion into art , from photography, dancing to designing. My father never support my passion. He always said to me and sibling to forget our passion but focus on surviving this life conservatively.
I am tired of them telling me to survive this life the way close-minded Asian parent would do. I’ve been struggling to excel in every study since I was young. I spent my whole youth studying to get good marks so that I can receive scholarship and eventually live far away from here. Nowadays, it’s getting harder to secure a scholarship even with good result.
I know that my father will never support me, mentally or financially. My mom is a housewife, and since I’m the eldest, I have 3 more younger siblings who needs more money for their education.
Recently, my father and I argued again, as for him I will never be fit in this professional field. But I know what I wanted to become. I know I can be who I want. After the argument, I started to apply university abroad. I know I need to make changes to my life. I know I have to start somewhere.
I have received few of conditional offer letter from the university I am applying to.
I will try to get loan to cover my tuition fees, but at the moment I have to pay for the deposit which is 4000£ and have to show that I have sufficient amount (10000£) of money in the bank account.
I know it’s a big amount of money and I still have long way to go. I’m not sure if this is going to work or not, but at least I know that I have tried.
Right now, I’m working part time and saving a little money. With the saving I have, I still have a lot to cover.
Therefore, I humbly beg if you can help me donate to fund my study. A little amount from you means a lot to me. I’m thanking you in advance and I wish everyone prosperity life.
Have good day.
