My name is Justine Salas and I am a final year student at Lyceum of the Philippines pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Multimedia Arts.
I started the program in 2013 and should have graduated 2 years ago, but due to the separation of my parents, we were left homeless and my studies had to be on hold as I had to embark on working as a graphic artist to support my family. My studies took a back seat and enrolments to classes took place when there were enough savings to pay for the modules.
Life has been a daily struggle and I am now at the final leg. I have 6 modules that need to be completed before I am awarded my Degree. Unfortunately due to the weakening of the Philippine peso and rising inflation, it has made it impossible to make ends meet. There is a shortfall of $2,500 that I need to raise so I may complete my education.
This is the first time I am seeking help as I am in dire need, the little I earn is barely enough for my family's rental apartment and expenses. I am seeking your generosity to kindly help me fulfil my dreams of completing my education. I do not want to give up, and I pray you help make my dreams a reality.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all!
