My name is Shonia Nayar Atchu and I'm currently studying Dentistry at King's College London. I've passed my 3rd year with an overall Merit and have recently begun my 4th year however, financial hardship is proving to be a significant obstacle for me. I'm blessed enough that my parents have been able to partially fund my education in years 1 and 2, and I've worked hard to raise the remaining money through loans, scholarships, and considerably through donations from fundraising campaigns. I have been blessed with kind and supportive people. However, I am lacking funds for years 4 and 5. I worked 3 part-time jobs in the Summer, and work 2 during term time, and I try my best to reach my working limit of 20 hours every week. I'm determined to realize my goals and ambitions, and I always give my all in everything I do. In the future I hope to give back to anyone that's helped me so far, and contribute to the less fortunate, especially students like me so they're able to pursue their dreams, without worrying about their financial stance.
