Hi! My name is Dawid and I'm a 26 yo student from Poland.
I've always dreamed about getting a degree in marketing because it perfectly fits my indigenous knowledge and personality. This is the only profession I can do with full passion and dedication. Unfortunately, the university in my hometown never offered a marketing course and I couldn't afford to study away from home. Because of that, in 2009 I started an International Relations course in my hometown uni.
This, however, didn't meet my expectations so after the third semester I withdrew from it. I started my working life, yet, my desire to study marketing was still burning. In 2014 my younger brother started a course at the University of Derby in England and told me about funding possibilities, which encouraged me to apply for a Digital Marketing course at the same Uni. I went through an application process, and as everything was going smooth, I left a good job with a well-known international bank, all of my friends and family and moved my entire life to Derby, UK. I started my course in September this year and found it absolutely enjoyable and promising. Finally, I knew I was on my way towards my dream career. Oh, the sense of fulfillment and passion I have never had before!
Then on Monday 14th of November, after 2 months of my course, my life was shaken; I received a letter from Students Finance England in which I was informed that they cannot fund my first year of studies because I was studying before in Poland. You can imagine how shocked I was. Now, I need to pay 9,000£ (which is more than twice as much as my annual salary in the bank back in Poland) of my fees to stay at Uni and to make my dreams come true. Currently, I'm part-time employed in one of the major fast food restaurants and I work hard. But my income is way too low to pay such an amount of money.
I know I will not step back. I do press towards my life goal therefore I have no other choice than ask for Your support. Will you help me reach my destiny and fulfil my dreams? You are my only hope…
