Hello, my name is Ana, I'm from Brazil and I won a scholarship to study in Hamburg University's Summer School this summer. Despite not having costs with the tuition fees, the scholarship doesn't include the costs for my plane ticker and my staying, such as shelter and food. This way I must figure out these expenses on my own, which is difficult for me because I study full time and can't manage to have a job.
I can't express how happy I was to know that I won the scholarship out of everyone who applied for it in my university, and I know it will be a great oppotunity for me to improve my skills and knowledge in the research field. Not only that, I would also get better opportunities in my academic and personal life just for having that experience.
Knowing that Hamburg is one of the most expensive cities in Germany, it will be hard for me to find an affordable acommodation that isn't too far from the university, and the best price I found so far was 500 euros a month. I believe I can afford the plane tickets, but I would really appreciate any help to pay for the accomodation.
It starts on July 1st and I must have it all planned out at least by mid May, because I know the prices are better when you look at them months earlier. I won't be asking for much, because I know this cause isn't as important as most causes here, but I would be extremely thankful for any help you could give me.
Thank you already!! You will be helping me get a better future!
