Help me stay in college!

Hello friends,

as many of you know already I am a third year undergraduate student majoring in Environmental Science and Policy Management at the University of California, Berkeley.

You all stood by my side and supported me along my journey to Berkeley, my dream university, and words can't describe the appreciation I feel toward each one of you.

I have worked tirelessly these past three years to be where I am today, and I would have never made it without my family and friends.
Together, we overcame many obstacles, we broke-through insurmountable walls and created vast open prairies full of opportunities.

My journey is still continuing, and as such, new bumps on the road are to be expected.

My family can not longer pay my full school tuition, and because I am considered an international student, I can not apply for student loans and I am not receiving any financial support from the University.

Every morning I wake up feeling hopeless, but then I gain strength again by remembering that not only I deserve to remain in school and receive an education like any other youth in the world should, but I also owe it to all you who always believed in me.

These are the reasons why I am asking you-one more time-to help me stay in college by donating whatever money you can toward my school tuition.

I am aware that we are all going through intense financial hardships, so anything is appreciated, even $0.50.

Thank you in advance for all your help, love and support.

Love you all,
