Hello, I’m Trishan. I’m 19, and from Jamaica. Growing up my family has been trying to make ends meet but to little avail. When I was 5 years old, my mother and father worked together and rented a open spaced room. In that one room we had two beds, a bathroom with toilet and a 2 burner small stove.
In 2010 my father had stage 3 diabetes, one of his leg was amputated. That’s when things started shaking for us. My father couldn’t hold his job as a taxi driver anymore, after fighting hard to be of some financial help he had to just let my mom do it even though it pained him for his family to be in that situation. But things fell apart in 2012 when my mom died. We had to leave our house because we couldn’t afford the rent.
We now live in my mother’s mom (grandma) house. It’s a very small house. Three small bedrooms a outside pit where we do our business and a small kitchen. This tiny living space is consisted of my aunt, uncle and cousins. The room we live in currently is not as big as the other one. It’s extremely small, but we manage to fit us four (father, baby brother and sister) there. It’s one king bed against two wall on each side and one wall at the head. They treat us as if we are burdens and we shouldn’t be there. They say they have all rights because they are the right children of the owner of the house. They use up the time for cooking breakfast and dinner on the one coal stove. So by the time the stove is free the kids are already off to school or it’s 10:00 at night. My siblings go to bed on hungry stomach and I have to wake them to eat. Sometimes the government help out with just school lunches for them, plus they’re schools are free because it’s government education, so that’s a good part. My aunt and uncles almost always has a problem to say about all of us.
I have an opportunity to leave and live in the town where a lot of opportunity is. I passed my CXC’s which is equivalent to SAT’s. So I have qualifications for a job. I currently am working but it isn’t enough for us to leave. We pay light bill, water bill and apparently rent to my aunt which often times leaves us without food to eat. I found someone who would take 40,000 for rent in a decent 3 bedroom house with way better quality than a board house.
I have been accepted at a university in my country for a while now but I am unable to pay the tuition fee of $8000 usd.
With the help of 10,000 I would leave with my family to the town area by December or hopefully sooner. And pay my tuition fee so I can work and do school. My mother always told me “education brings you a far way.” I want to make sure my siblings have food to eat at all times, a better living situation, better opportunities, so they can achieve their hearts desires.
