My name is Tereza.
I’m trying to raise money to be able to start a new career. I decided to go from economics to Marine Science and devote my life to helping our environment.
I want to do it right, with the right education and scientific background to be able to participate on the projects as soon as possible. That’s why I chose to study in Hawaii. I got accepted to the University of Hawaii at Hilo and I start in August. I have all the paperwork, insurance and visa, the only problem I’m facing right now is financing.
I’m putting in everything I have, all the money I made including my life savings. But I will need a little support to make it through the first year.
I don’t want to give up just because I don’t have enough money right now. I’m confident I can support myself later – I will apply for scholarships, work as much as I can during the year and during the summer. But now I have to pay everything in advance, which is difficult considering I’m going from middle Europe to Hawaii (price difference).
If you can relate to what I’m going for and why I’m doing it, please contribute to this link. It will really help me and I guarantee the money will cover the most basic expenses, like tuition and accommodation.
If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me:
Thank you very much for your support!
