Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hello every one,
I hope my message finds you well. I had to turn to you due to events getting out of my control. I am a final year international student studying at Kingston University, London. I was fortunate to get a work placement after my second year which allowed me to work full time in industry and raise money for final year tuition. Although the salary was not fantastic, I had to settle for the only job I was fortunate to get after rejections by numerous companies I applied to and was interviewed by. One of the major reasons for the rejections was the fact that I am not an home student. I interviewed remarkably as I have had previous work experience in industry but on getting to final stages of job interviews, I get ignored. After my work placement, I thought I would have sufficient money to pay a tangible amount of my tuition but to make matters worse, information came from the home office that I have to go back to my home country to apply for a visa extension. As I had no choice, I had to return home for my visa extension which cost me a large chunk of my savings in travel expenses, visa application fees and other expenses. On my return back to the UK, I could only afford to pay half my tuition.
The University has requested that I set up a direct debit for paying instalments which is active as I speak. I have only 20 hours to work a week and attend lectures all through the week days. This has created a big problem for me as I have found it extremely difficult to get a job to suit my working hours.
I really need your help in this regard because I will start getting penalties from the University if I do not pay up my tuition balance. I am a matured student and my entire life, ambition and career rests on my university education. I am aiming to get a first class but that will become a dream if I'm not in the right state of mind. No amount is too small, it will definitely make a difference.
God bless you all as you reach out to me. Thanks
