So my name is Filip, i'm a 17 year old Serbian male. I dedicated 10 years of my life to football (soccer), but due to a knee injury, cause by an overgrowth ( genetic transmitted knee osteoarthritis) i was told to quit football for good, and any hard physical work for a while.
Since i never had a sport scholarship ( most kids don't due to lack of funds in our Country) i had to invest most of my money for training, away games etc. , but the money wasn't the problem, it was well worth it. The worst thing is, the time i spent and dedicated to football, it was literally my career and only future i could see, and now that i lost that i am completely lost. Because of the time i spent on training, i lost sights of education which is really important at the moment. My grades were always average, which isn't good enough to get to a Public University in my country. I am trying my best to get my grades as good as they can get in my last year of High School (Economic High School) but i'm afraid that won't be enough to get me to the University.
My last hope is A Private University, which is very very Very expensive for me, since i grew up with an older sister and parents who work for a minimal wage of 160 US $, and it was already decided that only my sister would have a chance to go to an University. I don't want to stay uneducated for the rest of my life, because my legs won't allow me to work with physically hard jobs.. I want to get a degree, and finally repay my parents for everything they did in life and for supporting my football career until the very end. So please, i promise i will try really hard and give it my all to finish the university studies, if i could actually get in to The University of Economics
So please consider sharing my story and help me out as much as you can, everything is very much appreciated.
The last day of enrollment is on 4th of May, so please be considerate and caring!
Thank you in advance.
