I created this page in the aims to ask for donations for my sister, Margarette Monterola. She is currently enrolled as an Information Technology Major at the University of the East. UE's current tuition fee increase has left us struggling in paying for her tuition.
My sister was originally an Information Technology Major in Graphic and Game design on her first years at UE, But she had to stop school for one semester, because of our financial crisis in the family. When we had enough to bring her back to school, she couldn't continue her course, thanks to the K-12 system. There were no current first years enrolled at the school during that time, so meaning, subjects intended for her course cannot be opened because she would be the only one attending.
Our current income, comes from one small unit for rent, that earns only 4,000 a month. And from me, the only bread winner of the family, that is still earning a minimum wage salary. I only graduated 2 years ago, so my career is still considered entry level. My parents are divorced. My father is currently unemployed, either way, he also has another family already, so he cannot support her education. My mother is almost a senior citizen, so she is not physically capable to get a job as well. Although, I can still provide for my family, like electricity, groceries, water, etc. But, its not enough to support a student going through college.
We are still looking into other options on what else we could do to get her through. My sister currently has a part time job, but it's still not enough to pay her tuition. Then, I thought I could find other options, anything, I could do for her. She is a passionate student, willing go over and beyond just to get an education. And I would hate for her to stop and kill her dreams, just because I couldn't earn enough. So I thought of starting a funding page.
Although I understand there are people who are in need, more than us, especially those who are in need of medical support. But, if there is anyone out there who can stumble upon this page, and has a little extra, no matter how much. We would be deeply and utterly be in gratitude.
