Hello kind people!
My name is Photine, I am a 20-year-old Greek undergraduate student. I’m studying Psychology at City Unity College (on a franchised program by Cardiff Metropolitan University).
As a full-time introvert –and part of a 7-member family–, it has been a dream of mine to live alone (with my little boy cat, autumn, of course!). The only thing holding me back is paying for my college tuition first. You might as well know that the economy of Greece is not good compared to other European countries. The minimum wage per hour is 3.94€, and most employers will offer you only that for positions that don’t require a degree or a specialisation. Therefore, it’s crucial for me to pay off my tuition first and then try to live off of 650-700€ per month.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t serve you pies whenever you crave them. I lost my job because I wasn’t able to agree on a different schedule with my boss for the new academic semester. I had to choose between employment and education. It would be ironic of me to remain in a job I applied for in order to pay for my tuition, and not being able to attend my classes (all of them were lab and mandatory). The bright side is that I was saving up money just in case something like this happened. Thus, I was able to pay six months ahead and focus on my studies for this semester.
The second wave of downfall came when my anxiety hit its peak, because of college and not finding a new job. Just like many other students, I have been struggling with anxiety since high school, and it seems like it’s only getting worse. Seeing a therapist is needed, but not a financial priority. Living in a crowd-free home is all I can think about now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, but being an introvert in a house full of extroverts and a mother who –for her own reasons– is passing her stress to you, can drive you crazy.
My bachelor’s program consists of three years. The yearly tuition fee for me is 3300€ + 800€ each year for the registration. So far I have paid for the first year (minus one month) + the registration fee. The amount left is 8475€. I am begging for your help, even 1€ can be of great help.
Please donate to me for my college tuition, and make my dream life come true.
