My name is Kimberly R. Yuma. I am a third year college student at the Lyceum Philippines of University.
I am a former 1st year Nursing student at De La Salle University Medical Center, Philippines but I stopped a year due to financial problem and that my Dad lost his ability to go back to work as a seaman. My Dad is 57 years old and sick and can no longer work, there is no other suitable work for him anymore.
While my Mom is 67 years old and just a house wife now with on and off call from the hospital for duty as nurse. My parents got married very late.
I tried to be freelance artist but the money I earned wasn't enough. Our source of income was irregular and we would starve for a day.. we only eat twice or ones a day with only fish and rice or noodles in our table.
I was able to study again with the help of my Uncle Harvey Ramirez, I shifted to AB Multi Media Arts because nursing is VERY expensive. I was able to study till 3rd year because of my uncle in Chicago but he died because of lung cancer and due to that, it ended his life and help for me to be able to continue my schooling.
Now the things that I've got can no longer sustain as I need to help with our house bill, food, my tuition and allowance. I am going crazy where to at least feed myself and my family. My earning through commission and selling some of my costume from my cosplay hobby is not enough.
This year I don't know if I am still be able to study but I don't really want to stop, people that used to help me got tired or maybe got irritated with how hopeless I am.
Most of our family relatives are greedy and only some of them helped with our food and little help for bills.
I want to keep studying and achieve my dreams...
please help me, your support would be a big help!
The donations will be used for my school tuition fee and to open a home business, A home business that will profit a lot so that me and my family won't starve anymore and the earned money would be use for my future career as an artist. I will save a lot and use it wisely.
I hope you will consider helping me, thank you..
