My Travel Story

Hello. Thank you for visiting my page. I am a 17 years old girl with an ambition to study abroad. Except studying abroad my goal is also to help people and save lives. It’s quite hard for now as I don’t have tertiary education and I don’t have enough money to help, but the little knowledge I have does help. I help maths and science students who don’t afford a tutor, since I can tutor the subjects even though my passion is not teaching, but being a scientist. I have decided to take a gap year to raise funds for my studies abroad, by also tutoring primary and high school student maths and science, freelancing and doing online surveys. I have also started applying for study abroad scholarships. In September of this year I will be enrolling for a BSc in Biochemistry or Biological and Chemical Sciences degree for three years. The reason why I have two courses is that I haven’t accepted the offers in two universities that I received to study with them. I am still considering which one to go to, as I love them both and still doing enough searches on the courses that they granted me an offer, but that won’t affect the fact that I am going to study with one of them. I have been interested in studying abroad but, it has been hard since I was in high school and my parents did not have money to send me abroad. It is harder as my dad is the only bread winner as a mechanic and nothing more brings money. Later I started doing researches on how to fund my studies abroad and that’s where I found study abroad scholarships. Even though I have a way of funding my studies, travelling is an issue since I don’t have enough money to do my visa, buy a plane ticket, Pay University and accommodation deposit and also pay health insurance. It’s quite hard since all the scholarships I have applied for grant the scholarships quite late. The money I am trying to raise by tutoring and the loan my dad qualifies won’t be enough since the deposit is 4000 pounds. I am asking for fundraising for my travel. It will be a big dream of mine that ever came true in my life to study abroad. I will also be the first person in my family to travel abroad and on top of that travel with a plane. It will be more than a gift for me to get a chance to study abroad. This opportunity will also give me a chance to study at one of the top universities in the UK and also get a chance to study my favourite course.

I would appreciate getting funding to reach my goal for studying abroad. That will also be one of the things that I would like to include in my book that I am currently writing. It’s a book about my goals that I want to achieve and one of the chapters will be my study abroad experience. I am just a step away from reaching my goal and if I get enough money for my travel, this will give me a chance to get a degree. In my country I know if I get a studied abroad degree I will get a great chance of getting employment. I will gain experience so that i can do researches and help lives of my community as there is a lot of things like disorders and diseases that are not discovered as people don't get professional help. This degree will also provide me with the right knowledge to perform researches and help lives of my community and the world through researches. Is a project that will provide me with the chance to explore and learn more about the world outside my community. The destination is more than meaningful to me, but my fate. It's all that determines the future of no poverty in my community and possibly country.     This degree will also give me a chance to save lives through researches and help sorphans as donations that I give won’t be my old clothes and some of the canned food that I can put my hands on at home, but also I will be getting payment making it possible to give something big. Getting an offer from university was more than a gift and knowing that funding is possible for a study abroad that makes my life worthy after all my struggles. I would really appreciate any amount anyone can donate. Either you will donate or not I also appreciate that you took your time to read my story. Thanks in advance.
