My dream of studying in Australia

Hello there, I am Louise and I am attempting to raise money to follow my dream and study in Australia. Ever since I was a teenager, going to Australia was my dream and I've tried to save up for it multiple times but life has a habit of getting in the way.  I am now 25 years old, and I feel like I need to do whatever is in my power to make my dreams come true.

The past few years I've been trying to study to become an english teacher and it didn't go too well. My days were filled with exhaustion and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't pass all my exams and I've been racking up a substantial debt in student loans. Now a few months ago I got answers and a diagnosis, I've been struggling with Thyroid cancer these past years and I am not only relieved to have answers, I am also halfway through my treatment. I have started on my lifelong medications to replace the hormones the thyroid gland produces, and I already feel as if I've been given my life back. I am eager to get back to health, and take back the past few years that I've lost to this disease, and one of those steps is aiming to go to Australia and study there.     

 I am eager to get back to work, and I'm taking whatever steps I can to earn and save money. I am moving back in with my parents in two weeks and I'm hoping to be fully back to work in Jan/feb. I am still not earning a lot working in a kiosk and also paying back my student loans but I'm optimistic that through hard work that I'll get there in the end.

The money that I'm trying to raise are going towards one full year of University costs, and I'm trying to save up the remaining two on my own. It will take time to reach my goal but I'm hoping to aim for within 2 years. I'm aiming for the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Anything helps, and thank you for taking the time to read through this. There really are no words that suitably covers how grateful I am for all of your love and help. Thank you.
