I'm Francis Ed Villanueva, 26 years old. History has always fascinated me even when I was child. Some people see History as a boring subject, full of dates and event that needs memorization. But for me, it is more than that, History for me is like a beautiful story, written by different authors, who would specialize in a certain chapter. In a young age, my passion for history has been awakened and further developed and nurtured by teachers who saw in me a potential to be a good Historian. I have graduated college with a degree in History, despite some criticisms and doubts received from some of my family members and friends. Now, I am planning to get an MA in History, however, I am financially incapable of supporting myself. I work full-time in a BPO company, however, my salary is not enough for me to save up for my education, given how expensive the cost of living in my country is.
I know most of you are wondering why I'm asking for donations rather than applying for scholarships to finance my studies. Honestly, I am not qualified for these scholarships, as I have always been an average student, and all the scholarships I've tried applying to, would only give it to those who performed outstandingly in school. Despite my being an average student, I still have a passion to learn and further my knowledge, especially on the field I am most passionate - History. It has always been my childhood dream to be a Historian; I have but only completed the first step to achieving my dream.
So I am coming forward on bended knees to all people who have a big heart to help me achieve my dreams. I hope that you will help me achieve my childhood dream.
You may also see that in my campaign, I've also included there "to buy an Alienware Laptop or PC", that'll just be a bonus for me after I finish my M.A., if I'm able to receive your help as it is still a part of my dream. :) However, all the money I'll receive will be PRIMARILY used to pay for my education.
Thank you and may more blessings come to you and your family.
