Tracey Lartey, a science student from Krobo Girls Senior High School, remains at home due to a lack of funding to continue her education at university.
In a letter to a well-known Facebook personality,
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was unable to continue my education after high school. My father, who is the primary provider for our family, was involved in a car accident and lost a leg. My family was severely impacted financially.
Since then, our family has battled to survive. So, due to financial constraints, I had to postpone my dream of becoming a medical doctor.
I beg you to help me achieve my dream of attending university. I am a very dedicated student who is now more than ever determined to become a doctor. I would be forever grateful if you would consider my modest request.
