I know my request seem wired right but I have to be honest in what I want and I hope am not asking too much but I really believe in you guys and I love this website... Sabrina C please help me out narrow this search to my taste correctly. I finished my secondary school some years back but I don't have money and no sponsor to further my education to university and I want to be a graduate please help me out. I saw some opportunities like I stated above in Japan, China and Turkey but the problem is my age is above what they need but their scholarship package included all above. Please help me find those that will accept my age in their age criteria (25-30 year) Am 26 years.
