Thank you so very much for taking the time to read and listen to me. I am in dire need of your help with paying my remaining tuition fees of £3,710. I am 2nd of 5 siblings in my family. My parents are wonderful and loving people, who have done their very best to love and raise us, however, both of them are unable to work at the moment; Mum takes care of Dad at home, as he is being managed for type 2 diabetes and hypertension for the past 6 years. Both my parents have sacrificed so much to pay a part of my school fees and I am so very grateful for their sacrifice. I have also been able to save £1,290 from my part-time jobs which I have paid as an earlier instalment for tuition. I work as a support administrator/customer rep, as well as a volunteer student rep at the university.
It has been challenging and frustrating trying to balance my studies with work. Managing time between classes, group assignments and my part-time work schedule takes its toll. I do my best to be awake in classes and participate fully no matter how tired I may feel. I believe in education and its power to transform my future and also help my family but thoughts of dropping out have begun to plague my mind as a result of the finances, I have not been able to get a loan or grant; I find myself holding back from crying most nights, I barely eat because I am trying to save as much money for my tuition, apparently I lost of weight because of this and had to get some student counselling to help me cope with the mental pressure.
I am here sincerely asking because I don’t know where else to go, I don’t want to drop out of school, I am passionate about my studies and am hopeful for my future after graduation. At the best of times, I see myself working with a charity/NGO focused on Primary healthcare and education in future. Please kindly consider helping me so I can complete my studies. The deadline for payment is the 1st of November, and I would be most grateful for any financial assistance you can give please.
I am writing with a glimmer of hope for your response, and I thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.
