Hello, my name is A* and I dream of studying hospitality management in Switzerland. Despite the somewhat comical alliteration in the title of this page, I am reaching out to you today out of unfortunate need.
I have already begun making financial sacrifices: I have decided to underload my spring semester, which has lowered my tuition bill by a few thousand dollars and I have begun a variety of job interviews so that I will be working between 3-5 days in any given week. Unfortunately, these sacrifices do not remedy the sheer cost of education and living expenses I will be expected to pay. It is therefore out of necessity that I ask of you the last thing I would ever ask out of anyone: financial support. I need this support so that I can fulfill my lifelong dream of studying in Switzerland.
This money will be utilized to cover the financial dues that I cannot currently cover and I will forever be thankful and gracious for any and all support that I am able to raise. I am already incredibly thankful to have friends and a vast support system who love me for who I am.
Thank you in advance for your support, regardless of whether that is financial support, emotional support, or prayers - I'm in rather desperate need of all of the above right now! I
