My name's Ega Nanda Dayasmara. I am 24 years old. I was born from poor family in a small town in Central Java, Indonesia.
So this is my story.
When i'm 18 years old my father fell from ceiling on his work. He is unable to work again until now. Thus I decided to get scholarship because my father couldn't funding me anymore.
On 2012 I got my scholarship for computer science in a certain university. 2 year passed without any major problems. But on the 3rd years (late of 5th semester exactly) i suffered a serous fever, i couldn't even walk. When i got a little better, my friends brought me to nearby hospital. I told my symptoms to doctor and he told me to get a blood check. The result was I got a dengue fever. It was shocking me, doctor even told me that i was lucky to pull through dengue fever until this far without a medication. Fortunately I recovered from my illness within a month.
And then I got another problem for not taking any class and final exam due to my illness. I had to take care of hospital permission so i could attend make-up exam. But the hospital refused to give me the permit, the rule is i have to hospitalized in there for at least 3 days. Then i went to my academic counselors and discuss about my problem, but he couldn't help me either. I couldn't attend the make-up exam and i got F mark on all subject except one i got a B mark. My grades dropped drastically and i felt devastated.
On 6th semesterI couldn't get good grades either, i think my mind still confused in that time. On 7th semester i got another illness, it was urinary stones. And another semester got messed up. My mental and physical health gradually fell from here. I suffered from depression and anxiety. Somehow i could still got hold on my feet.
On 9th semester my mom got a stroke. I came home immediately. Fortunately my mom survived from critical period. I decide to dropped out from university and take care of my two parents.
My brother can't funding us all the time because he has his very own family and his wife will give birth soon. I still can't get a job, it's hard to get a job from here without a bachelor degree. If there is any job it will be physical labour and my body cant hold it.
To be honest my will of life was already dead. But i realize when i give up on everything, it will be the end of me.
Half of the funds will be used to my parents medication. And the other half will be used to buy a laptop so I can get a freelance job (I like to do some digital art and maybe web design).
Please help us to get a better life in the future. Thank you very much!
