    Story

    Hello, my name is Antonela Guberac. I am coming from a small town in Croatia, Slavonski Brod where I was born and raised. Since I was at high school, I have dreamed about becoming a student in the United Kingdom but I thought it wouldn't be possible because of the high cost average Croatian family couldn't afford. Despite that fact, I didn't want to give up my dreams. Surprisingly, I found out that the UK government is willing to give me a loan of £9000 for my first year as an undergraduate student. I have been studying extremely hard to achieve my goal and, fortunately, I succeed. In September this year I became a student at the University of Southampton (which is in the top 15 universities in the UK) and I am studying Criminology. My decision has affected my family a lot. I have lived with my parents, two minor brothers and a sister who is a student in the capital city of Croatia , Zagreb. My father is the only one employed in our family and my mother, although she graduated at university, still can't find a job. I live in a student residence in Southampton which costs my family roughly £150 per week excluding every other need such as food, books for my course and things that average student should have. I have applied for a Yellow card (work visa for students) month ago in order to find a part-time job and help my parents in paying my education but I still have to wait 2 months to receive it. An average wage in Croatia is £150 per week and it is impossible for my father to support my education by himself so I raised this fund in order to pay the second installment for my accommodation (£3000) and help my family get through this. I really hope I will get the Yellow Card and a job as soon as possible and till then, I appreciate every help that you can provide.

    Best wishes
