Hi, i am Kerem Furtun. I am 20 years old and ı study chemical engineering at METU.
This is going to be my third year in the university and the money issues have started to block my way to sucsesfully countinue my school. I failed the first "online term" because of "not having enough resources". I dont have a laptop or a computer, and also my next year is going to be online. I dont want to fall back anymore, this really harms my mental health and success.
My father is a steel construction worker and my mother can not work because
she needs to look for my siblings. I have a sister (2) and two brothers (14 and 16). ı used to work at school to pay my expenses before the pandemic. But even then i can not save money to buy a computer.
now i need to help my father to feed the family. Even if ı could save some money, technology is expensive in my country because of the very high taxes.
Lastly, this is my last hope to countinue my school during this pandemic. Thanks for reading my story. even 1$ makes a differince for me.
