Hi, I'm Abby from Cebu City, Philippines! And here's my story why I am here in GoFundMe website.
Unfortunately, my mother had an affair behind my father's back. By then, father decided to raise all his 6 children on his own.
Year 2012, my father died due to disease. Since then, I have been working and studying since I was 12 years of age. Gladly I was able to finished/completed 4 year Junior High School a private school with the help of Scholarship program and part time as cashier, service crew of my relative eatery for my allowance support.
Also, I was able to complete 2 years of the Senior High School K12 Program in a prestigious university in our city (SWU-PHINMA) with the help of scholarship and part time as McDonalds Service Crew for my allowance and tuition support. (As they only cover 50% of the total tuition for private junior school)
April 2018 was my senior high school graduation and had to accept the bitter fact that I can't afford college.
I had to stop for 1 year and 6 months to work as a Customer Service Representative to save college funds.
I have tried to search for scholarship offered in our University however university scholarship needs us to work as university assistant every after school. Also, university scholarship only covers 30% free tuition.
Currently, I am still working as a Customer Service Representative and a first year BSIT college student.
Since that I have to pay for my own bills, boarding house, allowance, tuition, I am in need of financial help as my salary is not enough for me to support and finish school with other expenses mentioned above.
My 3 older sisters are now supporting their own children and family financial needs. I am the middle child, the 5th one is at our province under the care of my grandparents which also stop going to Special Class School (He have a down syndrome by the way). And our youngest is currently a Junior High School in our public school at province.
I hope that you will find my story interesting!
