Sounds like a silly excuse but if there are any people out there to spare some change it will be much appreciated. After a difficult year financially as a student, I have managed to get myself into debt due to circumstances and left unable to pay the remainder of my student accommodation. I have had to finance my life at university (food, laundry, books etc...) using money that I saved prior to university and some money from student finance as my parents are currently going through financial difficulty and are currently unable to help me. I managed to get a credit card and my student overdraft to pay off some of the accomodation, I tried getting a part time job but that proved to be difficult as my course has a very heavy workload, I have lectures 9-5 on some days and I need to use my time at weekends to study, so having a job was not feasible for me. I now struggle to pay the credit card and am £1,000 into my overdraft.I have managed to pay £3,700 using a combination of overdraft, credit card (£300) and my maintenance loan from student finance. I need to raise £1,700 otherwise additional charges will be applied to my account and I may be removed from University until I pay this off. I can work in the upcoming Summer period to pay off my overdraft and the credit card but the most important priority for me at the moment is to study so I can make it into second year and also, to find a way to pay my university accomodation. I am willing to pay back anyone who is willing to sponsor me once I get a job in summer (as long as I'm not getting charged high interest as this will worsen my financial situation). I understand that there are more important causes on here and I suggest that people prioritise some of the other causes but if people have anything left over, it would be much appreciated. I just want all this to go away so i can move on with my life and be happy again.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, I understand that not all cases of this nature are not always genuine so please do not hesitate to ask for evidence.
PS: please contact me for my identity, I am ashamed of my situation and have managed to avoid friends and family finding out.
