I have always dreamed of studying abroad. I keep putting it off because I have always been afraid to do it. The paperwork, the unstability, doubting if I am good enough -- are thoughts that haunt me everytime I even think about making that dream happen.
Then one day, I woke up and had a nagging thought in my head. I kept putting it off but it wouldn't go away. I asked for signs if this was the right time and it still wouldn't go away. So I started my search.
I'm lucky to zero in on two potential schools which I'm highly confident that I can get in. Unfortunately expenses are the biggest barrier in making this dream happen. I'm not starting from the very bottom but I am also far away from the top.
I know that this fundraiser may not be the most self-less nor is it the most impactful. But I'm doing everything I can to reach the finish line and this fundraiser is just one of the steps I have.
You're probably wondering why you should chip in. I've constantly proven myself to be a hardworker. As a full scholar in university, I have always valued hardwork and know the responsibility that comes with holding and spending money that isn't mine. If I meet my goal, I know how lucky I am and it will not be put to waste.
The cost I am raising covers the amount I am short on for tuition, fees, and living expenses.
Any amount helps and I'm more than willing to pay you back.
Should you wish to donate and I reach my goal, I'll be very happy to send over updates of my journey such as the following:
- my acceptance
- visa application results
- my few weeks in school
- regular academic updates + my grades
