Hi I am Bruce Van Alexus Lim. I'm from the Philippines.
I am a graduating high school student and will soon apply for college. I really want to be a clinical pharmacist because I have a passion for medicine. Currently, there are only two universities here in the Philippines that offer my desired course: University of Santo Tomas (UST) and University of the Immaculate Conception (UIC). My choice of school is UIC because besides it's location from my hometown, it's the less expensive university between the two. I asked the school if how much does my course cost. The office said that the estimated cost of my course per semester will be 45,916.44 PHP, which is equal to around 900 USD. That's 1800 USD per year.
Sadly, we can't afford that much of costs. Our only source of income was our family's little store and some of our rooms for rent. Which is why it is so hard for us to pay that amount of money.
That is why I am asking your help. Please help me and our family fund my college because life here is so hard. This would be of great help for our family to lessen our expensive and to reach my dreams. Hopefully all of us will get what we want to achieve.
