My Travel Story

Hello! I am Ellie and currently I am an Undergraduate at RMIT based in Singapore, obtaining my Bachelor in Business Management. Recently, I have been given the opportunity to pursue my last semester in Melbourne, Australia at the university itself for four months.

I am really grateful for this opportunity - it has always been a long term dream of mine to study abroad, since I have learned about the idea and I am really excited to finally realise my dream. Unfortunately, my budget constraints is holding me back from doing so. For the longest time, I have been a full time student, and working part time since secondary education - at 13 years old to provide for my own pocket money. I have even took a gap year after obtaining my diploma last year to work for the university fees. However, surviving in a country with high cost of living (Singapore - ranked #1 as most expensive city) is really no mean feat. 

I have also just found out about this platform to reach for help through my shcool's website. Its a blessing in my constant struggle between toggling studies and working. The fundings would help me greatly towards the major headaches - flight, accomodation and term fees. 

Any donation is immensly treasured whole heartedly! I cannot wait for the adventure that lies ahead. A big thank you in advance!
