My name is Sarah Evelin. I am a 22-year-old medical student from Mysore, Karnataka. I am here with hopes of finding help to fund my education.
How does it feel to have a father figure to lean on in times of need? How does it feel to have a father who can assist you in realizing your dreams? I will never know because I had to loose my father when I was two years old. As I grew up with my single mother, all I wanted to be was a doctor. I wanted to be the person who has the potential to save lives. I worked hard for it too - I have been a meritorious student to date. However, there is one issue that keeps me from becoming what I aspire to - lack of funds. This is the same reason why I had to choose Bachelors in Dental Surgery.
Currently, I am a third-year student pursuing Bachelors in Dental Surgery at KVG Dental College and Hospital, Sullia, DK, Karnataka. My mother and I ran around banks, family, friends and somehow managed to make it past the second year. But, the pandemic has been too harsh on us and we were unable to get a loan this year. The lockdown makes it hard to go to the bank within the stipulated time. The process has been quite arduous. This led to us taking personal loans from close friends circles. The lack of income is making it hard for us to pay them back. As of now, we owe our lenders 5 lakh rupees in total.
In a time where working conditions are difficult for doctors, I see a need to pursue my education more aggressively than ever. I am passionate about what I study and I want to be an asset to society. I am hoping that all of you will help me with reaching my target. This is a humble request to donate whatever you can. Your smallest contribution matters to me and my mother.
All the sum that will be collected through this fundraiser will go towards paying back educational loans and paying my fees.
Please help me stay in medical school!
