Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My name is Dalia. I am a latin american student, coursing a BSc Honours Life Sciences degree in Scotland since 2015 and I am currently in my last year, very close to summer graduation time.
For the whole duration of my degree, a sponsor has been covering my tuition expenses. However, the scholarship fund was not enough an now I find myself short of 3600 pounds to cover the remaining of my tuition. Without this money, I won't be allow to graduate.
I do not want to ask my family for the money since they have been saving for four years to be able to travel here in time for my graduation ceremony, and I cannot take that dream away from them.
Thus, I have been trying to cover this debt on my own. Sadly, due to my lack of work experience and my visa status I have only been able to get low paying part time sporadic jobs that are not enough and have only allowed me to raise 100 pounds.
I know that there are many of us out there who are still struggling everyday to get enough money to pay tuition or cover student loans, even years after finishing your studies. I understand I do not deserve the help any more than everyone else, but it would mean the world to me if you could help me however possible, so I can make my family and friends proud and finally fulfil my dream of obtaining my university degree.
