My name is Oluwapelumi Debbie Adegoke. I was born and mostly raised in my home country, Nigeria. Currently, I am residing in Canada, specifically Hamilton Ontario. I left my family and siblings as I was given the opportunity to study abroad. As a result, I am in the Child and Youth Care program because of my love and passion for children and youth, their self development. I am in my third year second semester which is my last semester to graduate from Mohawk college in the Child and Youth Care program. However, my parents as well as myself, works part time as a PSW and occasionally factory work, the struggle to pay my tuition in the previous year has been a major setback for me in my academy, I owned $3000 debt from my last semester (fall 2020). Due to my debt, I am not able to go into my last semester (winter 2021) because I have not paid off my last semester yet.
My tuition fee for this current semester is $8350, I have created this GoFundMe to raise money for my Child and Youth Care program tuition fees. The pandemic (COVID 19) and the limited hours permitted to work as an international student, and also the current pandemic going on in Nigeria have greatly impacted my family financially. Presently, I have outstanding fees from last year last semester and will be forced to wait for next year to graduate if I do not make a minimum payment of $11350 by March 31 2021. This is important and complicated as I am on a student permit right now. If I am able to achieve my goal by paying the debt, I can finally graduate in 2021 instead of waiting next year and give out to the community by becoming a child and youth care worker for youth and Children particularly from troubled family settings or having a hard time overall. Thank you for becoming part of my success. God bless you as you help me.
