My name is Nicolette and I have just entered adulthood. I have created this page simply because I am financially desperate for help.
I will be homeless soon and I know it's weird but I am a local Singaporean but have been staying in a rented room on my own since I was 17. My parents were divorced when I was 7 years old and custody was initially given to my mom. She was a housewife then and my father was the breadwinner but he ran away with someone else leaving my mom struggling to make ends meet.
Long story cut short about how I struggled while growing up. My dad gained custody when I was 17 but here's the thing, he does not reside in Singapore and my allowance is $1000/monthly but with that I'd have to pay for my school fees, meals, transport and lodging. I was forced to stay at a particular rented room so that he could 'keep an eye on me' and with that, rent costs $750. He didn't give me money at one point because I didn't want to be under him, a person who wasn't there for more than half life.
I just graduated from my diploma in which I paid for school fees and micellenous by working 2 part time jobs to get money to study and for an operation to remove a tumor in my breast which is not cheap especially when ultrasound, examination, consultation and results are charged seperately. I was not allowed to further my studies and have not received any sort of money from my dad for over a year.
He just informed me last week that I will have to move out of the rented room by the end of this year leaving me to find whatever I can do to stay alive. Many ask, 'why don't you stay with your mom'. My mom hates my dad to the core and after he took me away from her, she never wanted me back. I was recently admitted to hospital from gastric, diarrhoea and vomitting and suspected of inflammation of the appendix. I left after some pain killers and drips because I could not afford to stay.
This is why I have no choice but to set up a fund me page, because I am at wits ends and I really don't know what else I can do.
If you guys could donate just a few cents (I know you'd prolly hear this from volunteers) I'd really be grateful because sometimes I can't even afford a bowl of rice and even if you can't, I appreciate it that you 'heard me out'.
