Help with Textbooks & Tuition
I am a college student going into my sophomore year this fall. I am currently $1200 short of paying for my tuition, dorm & books for the year. There's not much more to say, that's just all there is to it. I have exhausted all funds and my parents simply cannot help as they're still raising my younger brother and having financial issues of their own. I've gotten all the aid the government will give me this year.
I am the first of my family to attend college and despite being pulled out of school due to family hardship before I could graduate, I have worked hard, earned my GED with flying colors and currently have a 4.0 GPA at my University. I'm very proud of that and cannot wait to continue my studies!
Currently, I'm working two jobs and have saved all of the money I can but it hasn't been enough. I thought I was going to be getting more from the gov. but they changed laws between last year and this year's Financial Aid applications. I don't understand all of the details, but they didn't give me nearly enough funds. I owe my school money right now and that's before books or anything I'll need to live on such as food, clothing, hygiene products or school supplies for the fall and spring semesters. I'm a hard worker, and a very independent person so I don't want to ask for help but, frankly, I've got two weeks before classes start and I have no other options.
I am very serious about my education and would hate for a little over a thousand dollars to stop me from continuing with it. With all of that said, absolutely anything anyone can do to help will be appreciated beyond words. Thank you all in advance and bless you!
PS To everyone who donates, I will give you the biggest hug ever. If you live too far away for that, I'll send you a thank you note. It's not much, but know that it will be from the very bottom of my heart. Thank you!
