Greetings to you all around the world.
Thank you so much for taking out time from your tight schedule to read and listen to me. My name is Franklin, a licensed Registered Nurse from Nigeria, Currently in Bournemouth University, England doing my Masters program in Public Health. I’m in dire need of your help with paying my remaining tuition fees. I have paid a totally sum of £4,800.00 towards the payment of my tuition fee with a balance of £10,450. My total tuition fee is £15,250.00
The school have given me a deadline of NOVEMBER 13th, 2023 to remit my tuition fees or stand the chance of been withdrawn from my program and send me back to my home country. I’m the first Child of my parents in a family of 5. I lost my dear and ever loving Father to the cold hands of death on the 14th July 2023, he was buried on the 24th of August, 2023.
This has impacted me negatively as am unable to pay my remaining tuition since my only sponsor has died and this leaves me with struggling in taking care of my aged mother and my siblings back home in Nigeria from the little a get in the bakery were i work as a student to support myself . I work as a volunteer student rep in the university in helping to educate the student on the dangers in smoking and substance abuse which is on the increase in the Uk.
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 as a NURSE and educationist in future. Please kindly consider helping me so I can complete my studies. The deadline for payment is the 13th of November, 2023 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 much from the bottom of my heart.
