I’m Nurul Zamzami, a high school senior in Indonesia. Several months ago, I discovered a merit-based scholarship sponsored by the state for high school seniors and undergraduate students who need financial help. The scholarship offers a really good deal that covers my financial needs, so I naturally plan on applying. However, one of the requirements inquired by the scholarship is certificates to show that the applicant has won one competition or more in recent years. I suppose winning competitions and the frequency of it can prove that an applicant possesses a certain skill in an academic/non academic field, therefore making the scholarship a lot more likely to be beneficial than it already would be.
In order to meet the aforementioned requirement, I need to join and win several competitions before I graduate. There are four English speech competitions that will be held within the next 2 months. Three of them will take place outside of my city, so there will also be additional cost for transportation, food, and hotel aside from the registration fees.
If you donate, I can assure you that your donation won’t go to waste. I’ve been learning English for twelve years, and I spent 2016-2017 in the United States for an exchange program called Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange & Study. Only being able to speak English won’t help me win, but I’m also backed up with a lot of experiences. I’ve won several English speech competitions in middle school, which is also why I choose to do it again. Your donation will allow me to compete and meet the scholarship requirements, granting me a chance to get the scholarship. Therefore, you’re indirectly helping me secure my education in the future.
Your donation is highly appreciated. Thank you.
