I'm 22 years old and for more than half of those years of my life I've cherished a dream within - studying in the UK. I got accepted to several amazing universities throughout the UK, but had to reject their offers due to a difficult financial situation - my parents are 84 and 73 years old, we have a huge family with a lot of kids and all my modest income goes into the family.
Despite my "interesting" financial status, I've always managed to get reasonable rewards for my studies and initiatives, had a volunteering and internship works with the UN and political organizations. And that background helped me see through the people around me, and develop a career plan on assisting and encouraging the young people of my region by involving them into the "real world" (don't want to bore you with its details). But I lost all hopes, because I'm not being able to pursue the degree I want and need to achieve that plan.
Recently, I got a call from the dean of that course in London I rejected last year, saying how perfect he thinks I am for that degree and how he didn't accept my rejection, securing my offer for this year. That thoughtful professor made me cry rivers and gave me a little sparkle of hope.
Now I'm calling on the world, for which I'm trying to start working and which I love with all my heart, to help memake those first steps towards my so dearly cherished dream.
