I’m a single mom to two lovely kids.
It’s not easy to cope working, self studying, & being a caregiver.
My mother had a stroke in June 2016, & was undergoing physiotherapy for a couple of years.
She managed to improve from bedridden to being independent, though she can’t use her left arm, & walking has become really slow. She has to use a wheelchair for travelling at times. She’s unable to work.
I come from a low income family, my parents were divorced when I was really young, & my dad did not pay a single cent for maintenance.
My mom had to single handedly raise me, & my younger brother up. She was working very hard to support the both of us.
But my younger brother met an accident, & passed away at the age of 6(on April 2003), I witnessed the accident at the age of 8 while my mom was at work.
I have been wanting to get my diploma, & further my studies for a very long time, but I don’t have enough financial to do so.
I can’t take a bank loan as there needs to be a min salary before it can be approved.
I hope to get into life science, so I can study medicine. The jobs I search now, demands a basic diploma cert, & it’s taking a toll on me.
I really want to go back to school, earn my cert, & start a proper career, so I can break the cycle of poverty in my family, & support my family with a stable income.
