Michael Martey's Education

My name is Michael Martey. I am from Ghana in theWest of Africa. I came to Middle Tennessee State University to further my education in Computer science. I had a scholarship of $16,000 from my uncle, who was the one who was to pay for the rest of my fees ($18000).
Unfortunately for me, my uncle was involved in a car accident on 08/25, the very day I left Ghana, which led to his death. He gave me a ride to the airport and on his way driving back home, this unfortunate incident happened to him. He passed out on collision at the time of the accident and died on 08/30, five days after his accident. However, by then I had already started school and had to pay the remaining fees.
My dad and mom had to find alternative ways in paying my fees since my sponsor had passed away but couldn't because they didn’t have anything. They went in for a Student Loan so that I can continue with my education. They have the loan but unfortunately this loan will only be received every two months. I have been able to make my first deferral payment plan, and would be able to make the third month payment because with the help of the loan I will receive from my home country. However am really struggling with the payment of the this month and the month in between. (September and November)
I hereby write to seek your support in my next payment which is on 09/30/18 due Sunday to help me continue my studies here and graduate successfully. My dream is to be a software designer and with this I will create a software which will connect human health problems to quick medical solutions in my country of Ghana and hopefully the world at large as well as being one of the greatest soccer players in history with my God given talent. I hereby plead on your behalf to help me in the payment of my fees so that I can fulfill my set goals in the nearby future. Thank you.
