Introducing myself and my journal: Student

About Me:
AM a Ugandan by nationality, 24 years of age. am still a student though i don't see the light on how am going to complete, But i believe in God that there's another way he has for me. i have lived in hardship for long from childhood upto this moment, life of struggling with the aim of achieving better life in future. i have fought for my school fees from high school to college, but know i have reached to the extent i have become stack. i can't pay for my self again because as i used to depend on land, the weather has changed this years, you grow crops with the target of clearing tuition, at the end of it all the sun crushes everything. it happened to me three seasons in three years, this made me to miss studies for all that long. i decided to join waragi distillation where i did for one year and it helped me to finish two semisters. when pressure for third semister tuition came it made me to give the school even the little capital i was using. now am just at home hanging thinking what to do, my mother is helpless she can't raise anything for me,
Please i am down on my knees crying before you, give me also the hand i complete, i really have no where to go or start. May the almighty God in heaven be with you in Jesus name.
Thank you

You can post here that you are in need of scholarships and others will be able to reply to you if they find opportunities.
