HELP ME BECOME A DOCTOR
I am a nurse working in Philippines. I became a nurse through a scholarship given by the Benedictine Sisters, big thanks for their help, and now I am working with them.
I always look up on people who sacrificed their youth studying to save other people's lives, giving free medical services through medical missions which I love to get involved with. It has been my passion to become a doctor since I was little, but my reality (family and financial) isn't conducive for my dream. I have given up on that dream until one of the nuns in the hospital I am working with noticed my abilities in the medical field. She asked me if I wanted to become a doctor, and told me that they could help me but not totally. Suddenly, there is a new spark of hope my old buried dream. They advised me to take the National Medical Aptitude Test, which I did and got a decent score to get to universities. The problem is I have to stop working and focus on studies when I go to medical school. If only I could get enough funding for my cost of living and other educational expenses until I graduate, that would be big leaps into realizing my MD dream. I know this is not going to be easy but I won't falter for becoming a physician means everything to me.
I have worked harder and done extra shifts sometimes logging in 160 hours or more biweekly and even tried some online jobs just to make it, but it still not enough. This time, I am knocking on your hearts to give me an extra push, any amount is greatly appreciated.
