On her university’s ‘Confessions’ social media page, a student from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) wrote about how she has to “meet” older men daily so she can afford her meals. She added that the school fee loans do not cover her accommodation.

Anonymously, the student wrote “my mom just sent me a whatsapp voice message, telling me i could tell her anything, and i dont have to worry about boys, and i should study well. she knows something is wrong, and she’s trying to understand what”.

However, the student explained that she was unable to tell her mother about how she meets older men in order to earn money and make ends meet. She wrote that her own father was absent from their lives and that she wished she had worked for a couple of years before going to university.

“Our mortgage remains unpaid, the credit card bills are piling up, and the school fee loans dont cover hall accommodation. i dont show it, ma, but i’m getting desperate, too”, she adds, by way of explanation.

“I hope we get out of this s**t hole gutter asap. that’s my way of preserving my dignity”, the student wrote in her confession.

The netizens that commented on her post were unsympathetic, with even the co-founder of the page commenting, “So many loopholes on this confession or the OP must be living in a cave”.

Others did not believe her story or the necessity for her to work as such. Some even asked her to send them her photograph.
