Hi everyone, my name is Shana Lee and I am 22 years old. I had graduated from Temasek Polytechnics and has plans to futher studies but due to the condition of my family, I am unable to reach my dreams yet.
My mother is a sole breadwinner of the family. My father had passed on due to cancer and two of my siblings had also passed on due to hereditary cancer. Due to their hospital bills, my mother had to work tirelessly for the past 4 years also to pay for my tuition fees. My father was the only Singaporean citizen and the rest of us were born in Malaysia. Because my father had passed away, my mother and I were not granted citizenship despite living in Singapore for 20 years thus I was unable to seek help from local charity nor get any bursary. Because my family has history in hereditary cancer, I do not know if someday I might end up like my late siblings. Even so, I still want to work hard to be able to provide the best for my mother.
No matter what the condition of my family, I do not want to give up easily but at the same time I do not want to add more burdens to my mother. So to all the kind heart souls, even a dollar would make a difference in someone's life. Godbless :)
