After two years studying as a politics undergraduate in Coventry University, I completed the second year of my degree with a 2.1 (65%) average. Finishing my degree is my main goal but it will be very hard to finish it without financial help.
Concerning my journey. I was born in Lisbon and I am the middle child of 5. My family’s situation is unorthodox and hard to explain. I cannot and do not want to discuss it in depth. Unfortunately, my financial situation has constrained and restricted my life so far.  When I decided to move to the UK to work and study, I was only 18. I had a little money saved up for the first few weeks and I rapidly realised the implications of my decision. In my first year. I worked a lot in all kinds of jobs which conditioned my studies, my wellbeing and personal life. I was able to return to Coventry for my second year due to a scholarship given to me by the foundation were my mother was working. This allowed me to work less hours during the first semester but during the second semester I was missing classes working at the university´s gym and I was still coming up short for rent. 

 The 3rd year of my course will be more demanding than the preceding ones. I have a larger timetable, international trips and I have to write a dissertation.

 During my course, I have obviously looked at easier funding solutions such as a scholarship or a loan. Scholarships are minimalistic and usually restricted to certain groups. I cannot get a loan from student loans because I am not eligible, and banks will not lend me money due to my lack of credit and guarantor. 

 Therefore, I ask; if you have the chance, help me fulfil my goal. I will be extremely thankful for any contribution, which I intend to acknowledge  in my dissertation. I also promise to try my best and use my education to pay back your help with my work of direct action in our society.
