I am very pleased to
write a letter in support of my application to this beneficial
I’m Syamala Devi Mani,
27 years old, who is currently pursuing my 4th year medicine
studies in University of Medicine a Pharmacy of GRT Popa, Iasi, Romania.
father who was former ‘Police bantuan’ & later Tamil Nesan
reporter passed away 19 years ago on 16th May1991.
I have another 2 brothers & 2 sisters and I’m the
eldest in my family.
It happened suddenly when I was just 8
years old and my youngest brother was 1 month old newborn baby.
My mom was
working to raise all of us.
When I reached 14 years old I started to work
part time in order to buy my own school uniforms, books and other items.
This is how
all of us started to work by our own while studying.
After finishing my STPM examination, I had the intention to fulfill my
father’s dreams of becoming a doctor.
had a little wish in my bottom of my heart
to continue my education in medicine as a career (doctor).
after my STPM, I didn’t have sufficient money to continue.
Furthermore my siblings
were still studying.
So I had no other better choice, but to take a 2 ½
years gap and to work in Nationwide Courier Service Centre, Shah Alam,
to reduce my mom’s burden and to help my siblings to finish their high
Then, I continued with my A levels programme doing a part
time job as a home tutor.
Finally I managed to save a little and decided to apply to Romania
Medical University to
pursue my studies in medicine.
But the sad part was, I was still short of
more than RM20000.
With some hope, my beloved family decided to
send me overseas to Romania for studies.
Since they couldn’t come up with the
full cash for my studies, they had to borrow money from a money lender
friend with an interest of 10% pa.
Finally, I flew from Malaysia
on the 28th December 2006.
And that was the last day I saw my beloved
When I came abroad, I managed to find an
alternative route to earn money, that's to work in neighboring
countries, the nearest being United Kingdom as one of my choice.
So, I decided to try my luck in United
Kingdom to work in summer and to earn extra income.
I managed to earn around
2000 GBP in 2 ½ months and that’s how I managed to pay my school fee
3600 USD on my 2nd and 3rd year of medicine
luck hit again, the school fees were increased to 3600 Euro on my 4th
year of studies.
Then all of a sudden, the government of United Kingdom
enforced another new rule where temporary workers are not allowed to
anymore in their country.
So I was not able to work anymore.
I’m in my 4th
year and still need another 2 years of medical school fees &
When I was in Malaysia, I tried so many
scholarship programs and loans but not successful.
They refused to give me a loan because the
university is only recognized under 2nd schedule of Malaysian
Association, which is partially recognized at hat time.
Whereby, I have to
sit for my qualifying exam to practice in Malaysia later.
Therefore, I humbly appeal to the general public to help me with my
financing to finish my balance of 2 years in medical school.
I have attached together
my CV, passport copy, offer letter, fee
structure, and bank details as proof of me studying in this medical
a medical student.
May God Bless All.
