I am a 23 year old college student from Eastern Cape in a town called Mthatha and have recently moved to Cape Town for education.I am currently pursuing another qualification(Mechanical Engineering) because I haven’t gotten an internship or apprenticeship for the first qualification(Electrical Engineering) I decided on going back to school because I suffered from depression during the time I was back home doing nothing and not getting even piece jobs. Seeing my friends achieve their goals and getting their internships and apprenticeships depressed me the most but I would constantly tell myself that my time was coming but now it’s been exactly 2 years and it was not getting better so I decided that I should go back to school and keep my mind busy before I take my life because I was at that suicidal stage. My mom is a cashier and my dad is unemployed and I also have dependent siblings. I do not have bursary or any kind of funding. My mom doesn’t afford my education as she earns small money and still paying for my first qualification tuition a debt of 3 years. I cannot afford my accommodation and tuition and they due on the 25th of February as I will not write my exam in April if I don’t settle it (residence is R3000 per month and tuition is R2500 per 3months(trimester) as my course will take a year but hopefully I will get bursary before mid year).This is the hardest thing i have ever had to do, going all out and asking for help from other people but will worth it..I am asking for help from you to raise money so as to be able to pay my fees and student accommodation and for once let my mom breathe because she tries by all means to make things happen for me but I can tell that she is going through a lot and it pains me to see her like this and in alot of debts. I hope I can count on everyone out there to help me get through this. May God Bless You.
