My name is Caroline and I am an international student currently based in Sweden. I am studying for a Masters in Sustainability, and although I love both the studies and being in Sweden, the country is much more expansive than anticipated.
I have been saving over a year before that while working 2 or 3 different jobs, which had nothing to do with my initial profile, because I am a hard worker which does not shy away from labor.
I have been a support worker for people with learning disabilities, a cleaner, a bus driver even! and it allowed me to save enough to move to Sweden and go back to University to get this Masters degree in Sustainability.
But as I said, my savings are going down much quickly than anticipated. And unfortunately, my Swedish is not good enough at the moment! I had thought I would have more time to learn so I could get a job on the side quickly… But that did not happen as the studies have been so much time-consuming!
My parents have less than I do and complicated relationships made me not asking them for anything anymore (they couldn’t anyway) and I had to drift away from my family over the years (without going into the details of sexual abuse, mental illness etc.).
So I am turning to the online anonymous community as my last resort, while I can figure out something else, while working hard on my diploma.
I am trying to learn anything I can in order to make the World a better place, but I need a little help from the World while accomplishing that mission!

In advance, thank you for your kind heart and your priceless help!
PS: I categorize my post under Tuition Free even though, if you have read my post you know it is more about my day-to-day expenses and my rapidly decreasing savings. But I believe it to be the most appropriate as studies-related. Please note that I took the decision to come and study in Sweden because the studies were free there for me (no tuition was needed).
