I have always known that I wanted to go to university, ever since I was little, it wasn’t until I started graphic design at college that I realised this dream could come true, I might actually be able to go to college doing something that I love. I was offered an unconditional offer, and am now nearing the end of my first term.
I love university, the people, the experiences, the course, all of it is so eyeopening and inspiring. However, I am finding it hard to keep the motivation to be inspired. I was raised by my mother, who although has always been able to provide for me, has struggled herself, sometimes even missing meals just so that me and my mother could eat. My mother is a truly inspiring women and one day I wish to be like her, as kind and generous as her and as loving as her. unfortunately recently her financial situation got a lot worse, with her being let go from her job she had to find a replacement one. She earns even less than she did before and has no way of helping me financially. I got a job at a local coffee store near to my university, I spend all my spare time either completing my assignments of working in the shop, it is consuming me. I am struggling to make friends due to my absence from social events, as I have no money to fund me attending, any spare money I get I have to pay for my food or equipment and travel to university.
I know this is probably a lost cause and a useless thing to do, but I am hopeful. Hopeful that someone out there will be kind enough to spare me some money to help me out. Hopeful that someone shares the same kindness and generosity that my mother did to me when I was growing up. And hopeful that I will be able to complete college and make something of myself, so I can make my mother proud.
so please, if you can, help me out so I can make my dreams come true and one day I will hopefully be able to make someone else’s dreams come true too.
thank you for taking the time to read this,
