My name is Tereza and I'm trying to raise money to fund my university studies in South Korea.
Studying in Korea has been my dream ever since I entered high school, and now, in my second year of university, they've finally given us the opportunity to. After I'd passed the interviews, I was living in a bubble of absolute bliss... until a few days ago when they announced that they don't have enough money for funding us. And suddenly, I need money to survive six months in South Korea, pay for accomodation and even the fligth there and back, because I wasn't given enough money for even a month there.
The problem is, my family is very poor. My mother has a heart and lung disease that doesn't allow her to work full-time, and yet she's still supporting both my younger brother, and her similarly sick new husband. My father, who me and my mum ran from about seven years back because he was being abusive, doesn't even acknowledge my existence, and back then has run away with all savings we had for my "future" studies. That future is now a today, and I find myself working three part-time jobs and renting a tiny dorm room with common social equipment, just so I can afford tution fees and also have at least a little money for food. And even though I'm trying my hardest to earn as much as I can, I don't think I can manage to get more than approx. 500 EUR until the due date, which is May 15th. Given the fact that I need TEN TIMES more to be allowed a VISA, I'm now here trying to raise the remaining amount.
The money I'm asking for is the absolute minimum for me to be even allowed to get a VISA for studies in South Korea, and would cover my travels, living expenses, food and leave me with some little amount for emergency situations. I don't mind living on minimum, I just don't want this opportunity to be wasted.
Studying in Korea had been my dream ever since I can remember. And I hope that all the nice, amazing, kind-hearted people who see this, can spend a little of their own money to push me towards achieving that dream.
Thank you so much for reading this far, and please consider spending a little on me. You're funding a little czech girl's future and dreams.
