I am Nicole Lawrence a student in final semester at the University of the West Indies. Coming from a family of low to middle income members going to University is at times only a dream for us. I have always dreamed of becoming a Lawyer and when I got accepted to University to make my dream a reality it seemed surreal. I am the oldest girl in my family and I am the only one to make it this far educationally. If I graduate it makes me the first Lawyer in my family and first to complete University. My mother is my main source of financing my education she has helped me with the previous years but she is now unable to do so as the house was used as collateral for a loan for me and she is currently paying off another loan which makes her ineligible for other loans as she does not take home enough pay. Regardless of my financial background I participate in social activities which are geared towards community and youth development as I firmly believe that we can be the change we want to see. I do my best in my courses and have no disciplinary action against me .I am by this means asking you to help me complete my degree. I have been deregistered and have until March 1, 2015 to come up with the outstanding balance. Please help me in any way you can help to keep my dream alive, Thank you.
