I have a problem, and I know you can help. I am a 16-year-old girl that just passed her GCSE’s. I have been accepted into the school of my dreams but cannot afford to attend. My mum is not exactly wealthy and works very hard to make sure we can afford to live in our own home. She has done everything to ensure I do well in school and be an excellent student athlete. While I know we have always found a way through all our hardships, it would break my heart if I couldn't achieve my goal of attending D’overbroeks.
This is the first school I have ever set foot in and immediately thought I belonged, not to mention the fact that it's the only school that will let me study sociology, business studies, media studies and music. The school caters to the student’s best interest and their grades are outstanding.
I have done very well juggling my school work and sports being the basketball, badminton, cricket, rounders and football captain. As well as being on the team in lacrosse, rugby, rowing and athletics (hammer throw, discus, javelin, shot put, 100m hurdles, 800m) amongst other sports. I am a hard worker and my mum can testify I always do my best to not let anyone down.
I eventually want to go to America. I would continue to do well in school and strengthen my game especially in basketball and rowing so I can qualify for a scholarship to Princeton or Yale where I can have opportunities to study sociology or media studies and go onto become a lawyer. I have always been interested in law and bringing justice to those that need it. I admire them and want to be like them and one day to have my own law firm.
While I know that as usual, my mum will do everything to make sure I achieve my dream, I would like to do everything I can to help pay for my school so I can finally see her spend some time and her hard earned money on herself.
I know there are kind-hearted people like you who can help me attend this school.
Please help me.
