My name is Xinyu Dai, and am 18 years old, I am here asking for help for my university fees, I am currently stepping into my university, however as an international student in the UK I don’t get the 9000 pound yearly tuition fee, I will have to pay a fee of 21000 pounds a year. I live in a average family with a working-class salary of about 150000 Chinese RMB which is about 15000 pounds a year. When I go to my university to study, I will have to pay about 21000 pounds a year on average and that’s not including the cost of living. Of course my parents have agreed to support me with my tuition fees, however both of their salary added together would be about 30000 pounds a year, and that’s just enough to cover the tuition fee, and they said they would try to squeeze out my cost of living as well. However, as a son, I know what kind of pressure my parents are facing, and as my parents they have supported me for 18 years, and now I am turning an young adult, I understand in western culture, people at this age are considered financially independent, which means I shouldn’t be still relying on parents to support me. Please, you all have parents that are turning older and older, as a son, I don’t feel to rely on them to support my financials for university. However, I am also aware that my lack of skills compared to the western student puts me in a tight situation where it would be hard for me to find a part time job, and even if I do, it will still do little to help with this huge amount of pressure
Please, could you just help me raise money for my fees and cost of living, I don’t ask for much, but please, if you don’t want to donate, share it to people that might. Thank you from the deepest of my heart.
