During my apprenticesip I earned money, but that wasn’t enough to finance my life. I’m living in my own flat together with a friend, so I have a lot of things to pay which you would never thought of when you’re living with your parents.

Without the great financial support from my family it would never had worked like this.

Now I finished my apprenticeship and I will start to study International Tourism Management. During the studies, which lasts three years, I won’t get paid. The only possibility to get money is to apply for ‚Bafög‘. It is a financial support from my country, but you only can get it if your parents are earning a certain sum of money. Then you get an amount of which you have to pay back half of it to your country.

So the studies are also not possible without the support of my family.

Furthermore I will apply for a job. During the studies I have enough time to work like one or two days per week to earn my own money to go shopping or to finance other leisure time activities.

I’m very excited about the new chapter of my life, but now I‘m ready for something new!

Yours truely
