My name is Berniss and I wish to enrol at the University of Queensland, Australia to study Dental Science. I need your help to afford the international student tuition fees so that I can complete my Bachelors.
After being accepted into dental school, I was overjoyed because it meant that I had the opportunity to pursue my passions, but it has now come to a very saddening pause because of a lack of funds. I implore that you take a few minutes of your day to walk in my shoes and understand why I need your help, why I need you donate to this cause and share it with you friends and family.
If I cannot afford the tuition fees, I would not be able to pursue my dream of becoming a dentist, my way of making a dent in the universe, and therefore I need your help to make my dreampossible.
Becoming of service in the healthcare industry has always been my ambition. My interest in the health sciences, in conjunction with my desire to provide care for my family, friends and the community, has been the driving force that led me to aspire to be a dentist. Living in a time of rapid technological advancements, I would like to be able to contribute to our society's growth and improve healthcare in my own small way.
Although my parents are extremely supportive, they cannot afford to send me to dental school since my father is a technician while my mother is an accountant. Both my parents did not attend university, and I am in fact, the first one set to attend a university (with your help, of course). I have appealed and begged for scholarship opportunities, which are unfortunately, very limited for international students.
This fundraiser campaign is my last resort and I believe that I can only finish this journey with your help. I promise that this funds raised will not be squandered and that I will work even harder, knowing I have so many of your support. This opportunity would mean the world to me, and know that I will pay your kindness forward in the future, in any capacity I can.
