My name is Kirsty, I am 23 years old and I need all the help I can get.
I was a student at the University of Johannesburg from 2014 to 2017, studying a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism majoring in Communications and Political Sciences.
My parents were not working so I applied for a loan to study for my first year. My second year was paid for my a family member; however, my third year and 3 extra months in 2017 were not paid for. After my graduation, I looked for work which was a struggle so I could not pay off my third year in order to receive my marks and my degree.
Recently a friend got me in touch with an agent who could help me get a ESL Teaching job in Germany (I have also received offers in Asia too). However, to get a Z Visa to go work, I need my degree, the actual document so I can start the application process. This is the opportunity I have been looking for in order to settle my debt but I need to settle that debt to get there; which puts me in a dilemma.
I am not sure how this process works but I want try what I can to get my life back on track, not having my degree is closing so many opportunities for me. My parents would like to help me out but they are already struggling with my two younger siblings. Me working will take a huge load off my parents shoulders; they have already sacrificed so much for me that it would be a crime to ask for more.
Therefore, I am appealing for help, how ever much you can help with, to sort out my life. Thank you in advance for what you are doing to help me; you will never fathom how much it means to me.
I appreciate you.
