My name is Kathleen and I am currently a student struggling financially to complete my last year of university. I was forced to defer for a year in order to work and support my parents as well as save up for my final year of tuition. I was fortunate enough to make ends meet. However, to further pursue my passion in Architecture and to ensure a better, more stable, future for my family, I intend to do move forward with my graduate studies in Canada. Studying Urban Planning and Sustainability in a Canadian University has always been a dream of mine as it will push me towards my professional goals. Unfortunately, my family is unable to support me financially in this endeavor as they are also struggling financially, and I'd like to avoid any further pressure on them. I still have some of my savings from work, but it is not nearly sufficient to get me through the entire course of the program.
I have always wanted to make something out of myself so I can do more than just design buildings for aesthetics, but to also use my skills in architecture to make an impact in the world. Currently, I am applying to different universities in Canada and I am hoping to get accepted into the Urban Planning Masters program.
Any donation to help me realize this dream is greatly appreciated.
