Hey, I am a full time student, and as anyone pursuing their studies full time, it is very difficult to maintain any sort of financial stability.
I am finding to very difficult to find adequate employment, as with only being able to work reduced hours, I can’t make enough money to support myself whilst studying.
My family has always been poor, for numerous reasons, one of which is my mother is a single mother of six and she can’t maintain all of us adequately, so I try my best not to burden her further. Especially because my brother is special needs, and he requires a lot of care, which my mother is always busy providing.
Any money that I make, I give to my mother to help pay bills and rent, and that had caused me to be very much unprepared for the next school year of college.
I am here as a last resort in the hopes that someone would be kind enough to consider my situation and my need to continue schooling so that I may be able to one day pursue a better life for myself and my family.
I am very ambitious in the field that I am studying for (Early Childhood Development), and one day hope to be successful in this career choice.
I am faced with difficulties with issues such as school lunch, where last year I had gone numerous days without food because there just wasn’t enough to go around in my house. Other days I struggled to meet assignment deadlines because I had been confined to the working hours of the public library, whereby they closed around late afternoon, and I don’t have any internet or computer access of my own.
I would really wish that next year I don’t face there trials again, because it was very very hard and I remember crying more often than not because I would be overwhelmed by the confines of my situation which left me so frustrated.
It is not my intention to write out a sob story, I don’t mean to implore your sympathies but I also do.
If you could help this girl do better at school, I would be so greatful, and it would be such a relief, you would have no idea.
The image I have attached are the grades I was able to achieve last year, I didn’t know what else to post, but this image no less is an indicator on how hard I am choosing to pursue my studies.
