Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

No Matter What It Cocts

When we opened our second semester in January I really had very bad results. I had several C and Ds. I was really frustrated because all my friends had As in all the seven units. I asked them what they did and all they told me was to learn to please the lecturer. I got the idea and for ones I purposed to also try it. In February Miriam introduced me to one of our lecturers and we started dating. From him I got money to sustain myself at the campus and the number of lecturers I dated grew and just last month when I checked my results, I was real happy to see As in every unit.
