As a child from a single-parent family, it is ultimately my mom's dream to see her only son complete his education smoothly and graduate with a good Bachelor's Degree. I am actually bound to return to Abilene, Texas again to complete and finish my remaining 1.5-2 years of my degree and obtained my scroll. I was under a special arrangement to do my degree online as well due to the Covid-19 predicament. Fortunately, I managed to obtain a scholarship to cover my tuition fees, but I am still needing to budget around $15,000 a year to cover my living expenses and my books purchase.
Detailed breakdown of possible Fees incurred :-
Tuition and Fees -- $ 29,526
Living Expenses -- $12,375
Books and Health Insurance -- $2,070
My mom is also currently recuperating from a very bad fall she had last year which had caused her to fracture her knee cap and she is currently not able to work optimally.
Hence, I wouldn't want to burden her too much on the expenses for my education. My primary task is to ensure I am able to complete my degree smoothly and to not allow her to worry.
