Hello everyone! My name is Samuel, and I'm an aspiring law student who wishes to study at University College London, one of the most prestigious law schools in the UK and in the world. I have already received an offer, but unfortunately, due to the extraordinarily high tuition fees and living expenses necessary for studying in the UK, my meagre household is simply unable to afford the required expenses. Thus, I'm asking you to spare a little bit of your wonderful generosity to help me afford college and chase my dreams.
I come from a single parent household in Hong Kong. Although my mother was formerly able to make ends meet and support my high school education through her job, due to her increasing age she has been unemployed for almost three years now, being forced to rely on her dwindling savings and loans from relatives to keep our household above water. In ordinary circumstances, there is no way my family could ever afford this opportunity.
While I understand that a donation probably won't fix my life overnight, I do believe that success in life is fundamentally down to opportunities. This opportunity to study law at a world-renowned university would be the first step in crafting a better life for myself and my family. The annual tuition fees for the UCL law program costs £22,080 while an annual maintenance fee of about £11,000 is required for living in London. Since the degree lasts 3 years, I require about £100,000 to complete my degree. Currently my family can only provide £60,000, hence I still need £30,000 to be able to achieve my degree.
Once again, I'm sincerely hoping that you'll find it in your heart to assist me in achieving my educational endeavours. While I fully understand that there are other people out there in more dire situations out there who require more help than I do, I hope that you'll be able to spare a little bit of your gracious generosity to support someone striving to make a better life for themselves. Every small donation counts, and is worth an eternity of gratitude within my heart. Thanks for your time.
