Hello! I hope your doing a nice day/night while reading this!
Who am I?
I am 19 years old from the Philippines. And I currently planning on not continuing my study this coming semester due to financial difficulties. I still have previous balance in my university which is around $1000 and my family can't afford this amount for now but I don't want to give up because of my financial difficulties and instability.
More about me!
I am raised in a single parent family that's why my mom can't afford to pay my tuition last semester. I am a person who really holds onto their education. I am both academically and socially active. I always have 90+ in my report card and never went down since I entered Senior High School. I am also a member of a choir group in my university for 2 years.
My dream is to become a doctor after studying Nursing and Medicine. I have always wanted to become a doctor since I was a kid because it fascinates me all the time when I saw a doctor wearing white coat and treating people. Right now, I am currently incoming second year nursing student.
Last semester, I got a call from my mom that she can't afford to pay my tuition fee in full because she still have a loan that need to be paid. I ended my preliminary examination requesting a promissory note for having a delay payment in my tuition fee until I end my semester and still payment hasn't been done. My Mom is currently working as a receptionist at a company in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. She only have a monthly salary around $600 and these amount is not enough for my family. Also, I have a younger sister who is also incoming First year college student which made our situation more difficult.
Why you didn't apply for scholarship?
I already did but for some reasons my university change the percentage in scholarship. How did I accepted in a scholarship? I didn't apply for academic scholarship because of the pressure in maintaining a certain grade but I got accepted in my school organization, my choir group.
Any scholarship from the government?
I don't have scholarship from the government because their scholarship is not applicable to student who are taking Nursing as major because they prioritize engineering more than this field.
I hope that those people out there who are wealthy can share their blessings I am striving so hard to become successful someday to help my family. Please do give me the opportunity and I know God will give you back.
Thank you and have a good day!
