Hello! My name is Vasiliki and I am a first-year student in the Department of Biochemistry & Biotechnology, at the University of Thessaly in Greece. It is my ultimate goal to become a scientist in order to help other people, to do research, and to learn all I can about medicine. My desire is to contribute positively to the world.
Unfortunately, it is difficult for my family to cover all of my expenses. My brother is getting prepared to take the national university entrance exams and in some months from now they will have to cover university cost for two. It is really hard for me a student to balance studying, labs, homework and a part-time work. Such a strenuous schedule does not let me concentrate on my studies properly. My courses require a meticulous approach from my side and I need to devote a lot of time to it; let alone have some free time. My family already does so much for me and can not afford to give me any more. I have approached the banks but they are unable to extend any education loan to me since they are facing a financial crunch in Greece.
So here I am asking for your help. I am trying to raise some money to cover part of my university expenses such as rent, food, transportation, supplies, and any other living costs.
I am hoping that there might be some people out there who would understand why I am doing this (requesting for funds for education) and it is tied to make my dream come true.
Thank you so much for taking out time to read my request.
