Help me finish my degree

So, three years ago I moved to Rome to pursue a new life far away from Home. My parents and I reassured each other that everything was going to be alright. Fast forward to eight months and I found myself hopping through my friends’ couches and refrigerators as I couldn’t afford to get my own place anymore. As It was Rome, it took me sometime to get accustomed to the language and culture. I was living the most minimalist life, crashing through my friends homes and finding party crowds to get through. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Back home, my Aunt took the responsibility of taking care of my tuition but to no avail. The hefty international currency exchange rates discouraged the banks in Nepal to provide Loans and my parent’s financial resistance was eventually crushed. My University had already given me the highest possible scholarship for me to come to Rome and couldn’t find anymore funding for me. Meanwhile, I was doing great at my Academics;I am yet again a Dean’s List college kid(I have proof ;))On spring of 2019, I was told I couldn’t attend classes until I paid my outstanding balance. I tried pleading for help everywhere but to no avail, i was forced to withdraw for the semester. Feeling discouraged and helpless, the resistance in me kept on striving to stay happy. Eventually, I found a job at a popular party hostel where I worked for the following 18 months but the cost of living and expenses foiled my attempts to save any money for college. From what I could salvage, the 20 year old me felt like grabbing any chance to see more of what this beautiful continent of Europe had to offer; again crashing on my friend’s couch as I went along the road. Fast forward to October 2019, I was laid off work without any explanation.  After four months of grueling efforts, I still haven’t found any jobs. Currently, my Aunt has given up on the responsibility for my tuition as she drowns on her own million problems as the mother of two college students herself. My Father’s disability doesn’t give him any chance to work while my mother barely makes enough to go by. Whatever they have is now dedicated to my little sister’s University. All my family savings have extinguished and now I am faced with the same situation: Either pay or give up on college. I have been trying every possible thing I can. I even approached a benefactor and we were almost certain we could work it out. But Life has a way of turning tables on me, he got caught up with his own mess and couldn’t commit anymore. My last resort is to make an appeal to all you good souls out there and hope to continue my education so that I can finally finish what I started. I have a mind map of what I want to do in this world with my International Relations degree. I have always believed in making a direct impact in the events of humanitarian crises in the remotest places on earth. After the twin earthquakes of 2015 in Nepal, I dedicated most of my time in immediate relief distribution and Earthquake Recovery & Rebuilding programs. That was only a Volunteering opportunity that changed my perspective of the world. But I want to make that my life mission and I can’t get there until I finish my college. And Unfortunately I won’t get there if I don’t help myself by asking you all out there to believe in me and assist me in anyway possible to pursue my final year of college. I have been through the lowest points of my life trying to stay in college but it will all be in vain if I can’t complete it because I lack the privilege that my friends have. Please, assist me in any way possible. Every cent matters. HELP ME finish the last leg of my journey. Me, my family and my crazy little world will forever be grateful.
