My name is Bella and I am about to start my second year as a university student. I come from a very low income family where both of my parents are on disability and pay for all my schooling myself. I work 3 jobs; but the money just is not enough. Even with loans I will not be able to pay my tuition, pay rent and eat. Coming from such a low income family; I am the first in my entire family to ever go to school and I just want to make something of myself so I can help provide for my family of six. (3 sisters) I started working in gr. 10 to help support my family as my sister who was originally helping was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I worked two jobs through high school, but was never able to save much money due to the fact I had to help out. Thankfully my sister is better - but my family's financial situation has not improved. I am in grave debt from last year, and with three more years to go at least, it is seeming impossible to go on. I just want to become something that will make my family proud and be able to give us all a better life. My parents are the most loving people and do everything they possibly can and I just do not want them to worry anymore. Any money would help, you would be giving me hope that there is people out there who care about others and give me the power to move forward with my life and succeed so I can go help others later in life. Please if you can find it in your heart to help a girl like me I would be ever so greatful.
I thank all of you for your time to even read this and I hope for those who can donate some money to me I will forever be greatful and never forget your generosity.
Peace be with all of you,
Bella R. Ontario, Can.
