Hello, my name is Munjani 24 years old, i from indonesia. In my family, I am the first child. I have 3 siblings, 2 younger brother and 1 younger sister. Since I was kid, my hobby was drawing. I usually draw cartoon characters as I saw on TV, and this hobby progressed continuously as I grew into teenager. In 2012, I graduated from Vocational High School. I want to be an illustrator and eager to pursue Diploma program for a year, focusing on illustration field at Art Institute in Jakarta. When I was enrolling, I was required to pay tuition fee for the whole year. Unfortunately, my family couldn’t fulfill it due to our financial problem. My father doesn’t have any obvious jobs, with the unfixed income. Moreover, my mother couldn’t support more because she just stays home. Therefore, I decided to postpone my plan, then I tried to find jobs and collected money.
Within three years, I have been working in a company with the salary around two million Rupiahs for a month. I am earning money in order to make dream comes true. In fact, it is not as easy as I thought. I spent a lot of money to fulfill daily needs and only few I could save it. Sometimes, I have to give the money for my brother’s school needs as well.
I am willing to pursue my higher education until now, but during three years working, my savings are not as much as I expected. This year is my last chance to enroll because the maximum age for enrollment is 24. If I failed this year, I will probably lose chance to seize my dream.
The biggest problem for me is not about the financial problem. I can work for three or five years more and keep collecting money, but the problem is that my age no longer meets the requirement for the enrollment.
Any help is greatly appreciated even just $1 means a lot to me.
Thank you very much for your time.
