Marlene’s self introduction:
“I am a single mother of two children and my chances of paying for a university degree in law are currently impossible. I do not want to abandon my dreams. My only livelihood at the moment is the profits generated by my sales of various items on Facebook. I have had difficult times and I know that my opportunities would increase if I had a better academic education. It is a dream to have a law degree in my hands but it is also a necessity to have good employment and to be able to provide a better quality of life for my two children. Now, they are the engine of my life and they drive me every day to look for new and better opportunities.
I have taken a first aid course and a workshop in sign language and braille. I really like to learn as much as possible. From experience I know that the more you know, the more opportunities you will have in life.
My goal is to get a university degree in law. I want to be someone who vulnerable people can come to without worrying about the cost of legal services. Often people do not receive the legal advice they deserve.
I want to have a full life. I am willing to put in the best effort and get the best grades. I know I can achieve it! My life has not been easy alone with two children and it is time for my life to take better directions.
Thank you all for taking the time to learn a little about my story.”
