I am a university student. My only income is the bursary that I receive from the government. I do not have any other income. After earning the TUBITAK (Scientific and Technological Research council of Turkey) bursary with many years of hard work, my bursary is halted due to the state of emergency. I know this is nothing next to all the persecutions but it still is upsetting. There is nothing to be done. God gives the sustenance… we are going through a rough time since they have also removed my father from teaching. I couldn’t yet decide as to what I am going to do, but in the meantime I will find a job and work.
