Hi my name is Alia and I am a student. I am currently in my third year. I have lived 12 years of my life in the UK and consider this place my home but I am now homeless. Despite the 12 years I have spent in this country, I was still unable to get a permanent residency and am in the university as an international student as I worked very hard to get accepted into this university receiving a band 8/9 on my IELTS and also through the efforts of my beloved parents. This means that I am not qualified to receive student finance. Unfortunately, my father who is my financial hero and just a hero has to take 3 months of work due to a torn tendon and diabetes and can no longer support me. I am in my third year and just about to graduate but this mean that I may have to stop my studies as I have no finance to pay my rent. I have asked friends and family for help but due to their personal financial problems, no one is able to help me and the university is not able to provide that amount of money. I am now at lost. I do not want to see my 2 and a half years effort go to waste like that so I ask your understanding and kind support to please donate as much as you can even if it is only pences. Please help me get my education? Thank you so much!!!!
