MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN

I’m usually not one to put out my problems like this but, when you’ve been backed into a corner, you find every possible way to survive. You see, people have always called me strong and told me I find a way to get through the toughest situations and I’ve lived with that for as long as I can remember. This facade of strength has made me try to solve issues as low key as I possibly can, without involving plenty people, because everyone has their own problems and I don’t want to bother them.

Since this year, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I told myself I’ll discuss with my mum when I get home and we could squeeze out some money to invest in crypto or something. But I came home to news of her death and the funeral plans were already underway. So I was thrown into all of that, and thoughts of school didn’t cross my mind until everything was over. Mum was the one paying fees and I had no idea how I was supposed to raise them myself. Before someone says, you should have found little money to put in crypto, I’ll like to stop you. Prior to coming back, I had to borrow some parts of my flight money because mum was indisposed and nothing was accessible to anyone, so I was trying to pay back all that money as well(The flight back was ridiculously expensive and I still shudder when I remember).

There was no money to invest anywhere and crypto is not a get rich scheme either. Any money put in there is money you won’t be needing soon and you just invest and forget about touching it, at least for a while.

My school(Shenyang Medical College,China) operates differently. Before you start your student internship, you’re supposed to be given a logbook to record all your activities in the hospital and get signatures of the consultants in each department. This is proof to show them you actually learned something. The downside however is, the log book won’t be given until you complete your fifth year fees. I didn’t pay so I couldn’t get the logbook, and final year fees are coming up. I have until January to get the logbook(that’s when my school closes for the winter break) and my internship would end by March. So, I have roughly a month to raise all the fees and just be done with my school so I can breathe. My dad is currently in an ongoing court case that is draining him and so, I’m trying to fix things. But this time, I don’t want to do it on my own, I can’t even do it on my own. I’ve tried getting jobs both online and offline but I haven’t been very successful. Being a freelancer can get very difficult, but I’m not going to bore you with all that.

So right now, I’m going to be pleading with everyone reading this. I can’t do this alone, I need help from you so I can raise the 6,000$ I need to graduate. Medicine has always been my first love and my mum’s dream was to see me finally finish up medical school and do what I’ve wanted ever since I was three years old. She told me I would definitely graduate but without her here, my hopes keep dwindling by the minute.

So please everyone, if you are moved to donate even a penny, it would be really appreciated and I’ll never forget the kindness. I know the money is huge but, nothing is too small. Little drops of water, they say, make a mighty ocean. A Gofundme was started as a last resort to raise the money so please, if you do feel like donating, kindly click the link below.
