Students Allowance

Hi greatful if you could also publish my littel view on the above subject.

I was a private sponsored student also at UPNG for four years. The notion of pocket money or extra spending money was non existent for me then. While my SI sponsored colleagues could afford persoan indulgences, I'd retreat to my room and books. I worked manual jobs in boats and as a cab driver in honiara for my fees and airfares during holidays. I absolutely and religiously cherish this period of my life as I truely believe nothing is impossible if you really want it, with or without money.
