My Story:
As many of you know, I take a lot of pride driving for Lyft. I work hard at making the experience for each passenger fun, relaxing, and memorable through snacks, music, and good conversation. Driving for Lyft has been the primary means of income for me as I pursue my law degree. Unfortunately, on March 5th, 2017, I was involved in an automobile accident while driving a passenger to their destination. While turning left off of the highway (three lanes could turn left and I was in the middle lane) I was forced out of the lane that I was driving in by another driver and I struck the car to the right of me. I honked my horn and did everything I could to get the driver on the left to avoid hitting me but at the last second I had to avoid their car or risk being hit by two cars at once. The car that caused the accident fled the scene and I was unable to get their plates or a good enough look of their car. 


Now, I am on the hook for the damage of my own car and the other individual's vehicle since I cannot locate the driver that initiated this sequence of events. Since I was driving for Lyft when the accident occurred, their insurance policy covers me however I just found out that their deductible for the insurance is $2,500!

How you can help:
I am in desperate need of help right now. Driving for Lyft is how I paid bills and made money for myself and now I have no means to drive until this all gets sorted out. Please, if you are reading this and have any money to donate, I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me in this extremely difficult time. I have no idea what I'm going to do in this situation. It would absolutely mean the world to me if you could donate and/or share this post. Any kind of support will help greatly. I've really been down in the dumps since this all happened and I hope that it all can be resolved soon. I just want to be able to get back on the road and continue driving passengers safely to and from their destinations. You can help me achieve that goal. The total is $2800 for my insurance deductible and the fees that I calculated for using GoFundMe. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to read my story.

With the love and support from friends and family and even strangers, I am $823 away from achieving my goal. Seriously, words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you so much for picking me up when I felt like I hit rock bottom. I am grateful for each and everyone of you. If you know of anyone that can help out, I would greatly appreciate it. Donations help big time but sharing of my GoFundMe are just as valuable. Love you all.
