I finished high school in 2011 and had high hopes for my future. I had been accepted at a University for my preferred degree and was all set. Then my parents got divorced. With this most of my study money was lost in the battle. I took out a loan with the bank and successfully passed my first year whilst working in the evenings and over weekends to supplement my expenses. The following year I took out another loan and once again passed the year whilst continuing to work part time. At the beginning of my final year- 2014-, I was sitting in final year orientation class when I received the bad news- the bank was not giving me a loan for my last year. I was heart broken. I had no way of funding my final year and was forced to take a gap year to earn some money. That gap year became 3 years. I slowly started saving up, and by the end of 2015 I got a job as a flight attendant, a well paying job. I finally knew I would be able to pay my studies in the following year. Unfortunately I got injured whilst flying and sustained nerve damage in my neck- most of savings have been put to medical bills and I can no longer work in my capacity as flight attendant. I would like to finish my degree in 2017 as planned but need the study fee money. My boyfriend has pledged to help me with living costs, paying my car and petrol as best he can.
Every small plegde helps. Be it for rent, electricity, book fees, groceries.
