As a student here in Philippines especially during this pandemic time, I myself experience so many things! Like having a problem for the expenses in school. There is also a time that I myself don’t know what to do or what should I do during exams because I didn’t pay my tuition fees. And the reason why I’m filling this up it’s because I have a dream to chase, and made my parents proud. And most of all pay all their sacrifices for me. I should fight for this dream no matter what it takes because I cannot see my mother suffering for the expenses it’s because we do not have enough money to pay. I hope my luck! And God may bless us all students!
