Hi, this is İrem! I am a student from Turkey, and I got accepted into a study abroad program in Toulouse, France. I was able to find a very small amount of scholarship, but that would only be enough to cover my plane ticket and a few small expenses. Since I do not speak French very well, I will have limited opportunities to work and make my own living in the first place. The university I got accepted into in France ranks better than the best Turkish university I could possibly study at, in terms of the major I want to do. Therefore, I don't want to miss this opportunity.
Also, in addition to the academic morale, I want to say that I have a spiritual morale as well. My mother is a single mom, who has worked very hard to raise me and my little sister. Although she knows that we are not financially able to afford this program, she wants me to go at the expense of putting herself in debt. The last thing I would like to do is putting her in debt, but I also want to make her proud.My own savings, unfortunately, have shrunk due to the economic crisis in my country and the money I've been saving for years has become almost nothing, owing to the devaluation of our currency. So, I need your help more than ever.
The money will be used to cover my tuition fees, books and rent. Any donation would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your donations!
