I am a 20 years old girl from Hungary. All my life, it's been my dream to study medicine so i can help people. After years of hard work, i finally got accepted to the best medical university of my country (also one of the best in the world): Semmelweis University ( http://semmelweis.hu/english/ ).
I am coming from a poor family. I don't know my father, i live with 2 younger sisters, raised by my mother who is working all day long (even at weekends) so that we can live on.
After graduating from high school, i looked for jobs everywhere i could. I have accepted every opportunity i could. Right now, i am working as a cleaning woman, earning below minimum wage (~250 euros / month)
This would be fine for me, as i can still support my family with the little money i earn, but unfortunately, medical studies in Hungary are extremely expensive.
Studying alone can cost a fortune, but since my grades were always good, i managed to get a scholarship, Although i don't have to pay for the education itself, i still need to buy the medical books myself.
These books are very expensive (compared to my salary), ranging from 60 to 150 euros.
Example:Sobotta Atlas of Human Anatomy
To be able to study efficiently, i need approximately 3 books for every subject.
Please help me make my dreams come true and be a doctor!
I am thankful for even the smallest donation!
