Here's my story: My name's Shania and I currently live on the island of Trinidad, of the country Trinidad and Tobago. See, the thing is, in my country there aren't that many opportunities for someone such as myself to learn sufficiently. I find the education system lacking in some areas, but don't get me wrong, I'm extremely grateful for all do opportunities that we do have here.
As some of you may know, the country in which I live is a third world country and I am a little below middle class citizen here. My parents work very hard and overtime to try to help me get all the money I need, because as good parents, they want the best for their offspring.
It's sad knowing that no matter how hard I work here or how much I study here (and I'm working very hard and studying as much as I can) I'll never get as much as I could have if only I had the funds. I'd hopefully like to study at an American University.
I'm a smart, hardworking, dedicated person with a drive for knowledge. I'm in need of some extra funds to help me further my education. I intend to work hard and be successful so that I can in turn, support my family who are working extra hard to try to pay for my education, but it seems I need something extra. And so, I would really appreciate it if you could give any amount at all to help me. Thank you.
