Michael Bakal  BALDWIN, NY
Hey everyone. My name is Michael and I'm 32 from Baldwin, Long Island. I am a volunteer firefighter as well as an Emergency Medical Technician. After earning my EMT certification 3 years ago, I have wanted to continue my education and become a NYS Paramedic. I have applied to a paramedic class and have been accepted, but I am unable to pay the tuition. I have tried to get loans, grants, etc. but to no avail. The fire department will not provide financial assistance and no one in my family has extra savings. I heard about Gofund and thought it was worth a shot, so here I am asking for help. As someone who has grown up with Tourette's and losing my father to cancer, I know what its like to struggle and to earn everything in life. All I dream is to be there for others the way my family and friends have been there for me. Please help me make my dream come true.
