My 4-year old laptop crashed unexpectedly as I am approaching the exam season. While I am lucky to have friends who are willing to lend their laptops for the exam season, I am currently in need of a laptop to support my university work beyond this period, especially when COVID-19 has led to a shift towards e-learning. I have been unable to go home due to the COVID-19 restrictions and obtaining a laptop overseas is costly especially considering my father is currently facing financial difficulties as COVID-19 has affected his job and business. Without a workable laptop, I am unable to do a lot of things and it may severely affect my academic capability. I do hope that as I am working out to secure the funding through other means, you will be willing to fork out a bit in the hope to ease the burden.
