I'm 25 years old and have lived by myself for the last 6 years, I'm a student midwife almost finished my first year. I get a bursary and student finance which amounts to roughly £7500 a year and I get £200 a month from my stepdad, this pays for my rent and bills. I work in a car body shop as and when I can which is not as often as I would like as I have to do placements at the hospital which take up a lot of my time and I'm not paid for them. In order for me to finish my training I would need a small amount of money to help pay for my travel to and from uni and placements and food shopping. I really don't like to ask for help but I have no other option. I'm doing this course so that I can have a respectable career that although will be very stressful it is also extremely rewarding! I'm sure I will probably get no where with this site but thought it was worth a try!
