Here is what Samantha has to say, in her own words:
Hello everyone, my name is Samantha Sosora l am a nursing student at Nelson Mandela University just finished my 3rd year of studying going onto my 4th year of studying in 2020. Why did l choose to study Nursing as a career? Well l have always been passionate about working in the health industry, as l love working with people and l enjoy lending a helping hand to those who cannot help themselves, nothing makes me more happy than the feeling of knowing that l have a made a difference in someone else’s life.
I’m raised by a single mother and over the past years my mom has struggled financially to put me through school, she works tirelessly between 2 jobs, as a domestic worker from Monday to Friday and as a carer at an old age home during weekends. Through God’s grace we have managed to come this far.
This year my mom recently lost her job of more than 10 years which has made the situation even harder for us. I am appealing for help as we cannot do it alone anymore. The university was kind enough to allow us to pay the school fees in instalments over the years and sometimes l could delay in getting my results due to lack of payment.
I have tried applying for bursaries from different institutions with no luck as l am not a citizen of South Africa. I am a focused, hardworking and dedicated student. I work part time at a local restaurant, which is also helping me with the small basic need such as books allowance and transportation. I am not giving up and l will not give up, therefore l am appealing to you, if you can assist me in any way.
Completing this degree is not only a dream come true for me but also for my family members who are looking up to me. There’s nothing l would love more than to see my mom cry tears of joy as l walk through that stage getting my degree in April 2022. I would appreciate any small amount of contribution as it will make a huge difference towards my future. Please share my story with your as this will also make a big difference.
