Hello! My name is Maryelle Macarubbo, I'm an incoming 3rd Year student pursuing BA - Advertising in University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines.
I love photography so i took this program. I am supposed to be a 4th yr student now but stopped for a year because of financial difficulties, but right after I stopped, it was announced that I'm actually a Dean's Lister(1.6 GWA) thus, I enrolled again to pursue my program and I believe that I'm a Dean's Lister again basing it on my grades :) YAY!
I am now currently taking care of my Exchange Program to South Korea for the Spring Semester in 2019 to Fall Semester. Ever since I was in High School, I've been dreaming on going an exchange program to explore another culture. And now that I'm in college, it has turned into a possibility.
BUT costly fees are hindering me into making it a reality. My tuition fees are already steep, and with the accommodation in my chosen country are really high for me and my family to cover.
My tuition for the whole year will be $2,760(approx.) and accommodation in S. Korea is very expensive comparing to my home country. For a semester in S. Korea is 2,000,000krw($2000)(wow).
Any donation small or big, it will still be a big help for me to continue my dream and making it into a reality!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to anyone who will be helping me!
I hope I can get any donation before October(Deadline of Application). If there is any donation before that, it's a sign that i should pursue my this.
If you want to know where I will be studying, It's Sogang University and I will take up Arts and Technology :) a reason why I also picked South Korea is I want to experience the snow on Christmas!! I've been researching about Exchange Program for a year now and I cant wait to do this, so any help at all will be appreciated!
