Hello, I am really struggling to pay my way through school and was really hoping to get some donations! I already work a job but I have had four surgeries before with major complications that has left me with back issues and nerve damage all along my fingers and side of hand so I cannot work too many hours as it causes much pain for me. I do my best to do what I can at work but it is very hard finding a job that does not use your fingers much. When I had my surgeries, I had been pulled out of school all four times and at one point had to have a homebound teacher. This was really hard for me not only was I having issues physically, and through all the school I missed before I had graduated high school but my mental health was hanging by a thread because of lack of interactions I had with anyone. I try my best to not let this affect me currently but the physical and mental trauma I went through gets to me some days. I am trying to move on and do my best to succeed in the world and now I am enrolled in university. I am currently working on my bachelors right now and my parents try to help me as best they can but they came to this country because a war and started with nothing and had some sponsors to help. I have two other siblings that they have to care for as well as other expenses and it has overall been a hard time. My parents were refugees and being the daughter of them I see how war can devastate and affect the lives of many. We never had any money growing up and I sadly I do not even know how my parents looked like in the past. I just know how they look now because the war and the fires had burnt all of their photos and memories. I see how my parents are struggling and I do not want them to worry about my education. I have done quite a few scholarships but unfortunately not much success has came from that. I will continue to try however with everything because school and having a career is very important to me and I do not want my family to have more things to worry about or feel any type of guilt for not being able to contribute more. Thank you for reading my post and for even 10 cents I thank you with all my heart <3
Life is just too expensive for some people :(
PS: the image below is the cost I had to pay for only one semester and it was not a full course load, I am currently now in my second.
