Hi, im NURHARITH IKMAL, a Year 2 student in Bachelor of Accounting (Hons) in Mara Technology University (UITM). I live with my grandmother who doesn't work. I used a PTPTN loan to cover my expenses at UITM but it was not enough as I was not offered to stay in college. Because of this, I had to spend a lot of money on other expenses such as rent and bus fare to go to class until there was not enough money to cover my other expenses.My father was unemployed for the past few years and my expenses were covered by my grandmother. My mom has stopped paying for me after getting divorced a few years ago and we haven't met since. I have 3 siblings. I was the first child. Because of that, I have to sacrifice a lot to both my younger brothers who are still in high school and in elementary school. I have been interested in pursuing a degree in accounting since I was in Form 4. I am thankful that my dream of furthering my studies in this field has been achieved. However, I have to spend money to continue my university studies.
I attended many seminars on accounting and I got a lot of information from those seminars. I aspire to be a qualified accountant and this will only become a reality after I sit for a professional exam in this field known as 'ACCA'. I want to be one of the accredited accountants because Malaysia has set a great goal of producing many accredited accountants in this country and I want to be one of them.I only receive loans from PTPTN amounting to RM2300 per semester and I do not receive any scholarships and alms from certain bodies. For the course background, I was able to get all the A's in the UPSR exams. I managed to continue my studies at the Mara College of Science (MRSM). I only studied at MRSM for 6 months and had to quit because of my family's financial problems. I started my normal high school daily through grade 3 and got 5A in the PT3 exam. While in Form 4, I began my studies in accounting because I was very interested in this field after I gained a lot of exposure in this field. I got 6A and 3B results in the SPM exam.After high school, I continued my studies at the Perlis Matriculation College in Accounting. I also got an offer to pursue a degree in Professional Accountancy, ACCA at a private college. But because of the financial problems that the family was facing at the time, I had to reject the offer with a heavy heart, even though it was something I had always wanted since college. I successfully obtained CGPA 3.6 in matriculation. With good results, I was able to continue my studies in Bachelor of Accounting.During my journey to pursue knowledge, I had to sacrifice a lot because of financial problems. I no longer want to be in that situation because I really want to succeed in the field that interests me. I used to work to keep up with the daily expenses but that was not enough. I really hope that with this campaign, I will no longer have to deal with the financial problems I have now. I really hope you can help me in this campaign. Many thanks to you for reading and supporting this campaign.
