My name is Samantha Ong and I am a graduating student of De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde, taking fashion design and merchandising (FDM); and just like every other college student, I am to take my thesis as part of the requirement of the schools curriculum. In my college, FDM students are to participate in a fashion show, which we are to host and produce as well, showcasing and exhibiting our debut collection as a designer. With this comes financial commitment.
Personally, i do not come from a well off family which means every cent of what my parents earn is budgeted to cater to our family's basic needs and as my sisters 4th cranial operation is fast approaching, our priority is to cater to her needs. So, in order to help lessen my parents financial obligation, I have decided to come up with ways to fund my thesis project; such as, selling art, items i rarely use and things i made, looking for sponsors, and starting up a 'go fund me' page.
Please help me and my family to raise enough funds for my thesis and to finish school. Thank you!
