I'm Wan Yong, freshly graduated in August 2017 and seeking extra income while working a full time job as a Google AdWords & Facebook advertising campaign management executive and also as a freelance writer whenever I have the time to. The issue with being freshly graduated and working a few states away from home is that it can be a difficult and slow process to get a lease for my own property with land and all; I do not ask for my parent's financial support anymore once I managed to get a PTPTN loan & 50% scholarship for my BSc (Hons) Biology with Psychology degree in Sunway University.
Unfortunately, I was 0.14 CGPA points away from a First Class Honors, and so I wasn't qualified for the repayment exemption. I have started paying back the PTPTN loan immediately on a monthly basis upon getting hired in September 2017 (RM316.25/ month) and I am currently staying in a friend's house renting an available room as well.
I'm sure that most other more seasoned working adults here have experienced the difficulties in getting a first home, and the progress is made even harder with bank loans. While I am working and saving as much as I could with my current monthly income, some extra financial help would be very much appreciated :)
My goal is to get my own place within 3 years after graduating (by 25 years old) with as little bank loans involved as possible.
If this campaign does reach its goals, I'll be sure to hold an open house to thank each and every one of you :D
