Hi everyone, I am fundraising to pursue my dreams to become a barber. The money donated will be used to put myself through barber school. The funds will cover tuition, textbooks, kits and materials. I hate asking for money but at this time I’m trying to figure out anyway possible to achieve my dreams .The price of the school and the high monthly payments make almost unattainable for me to financially succeed without your help. Unfortunately, Barber schools are not being recognized by financial aid . After finding that out, I began to search for other options to fund my dream career . My next step was a personal loan. When researching further , personal loans do not accept vocational schools. This was disheartening and a step back, but I will not allow myself not to succeed in this . As a young father and husband, I feel at a lost as to what to do. Yet, I will not give up. I truly believe in this career and would like to share what it means to me . Not only would it give me and my family stability, it would also alow me to be a light in our community .I have been in situations where I needed a haircut, but did not have the funds at the time . I’ve felt that embarrassment and lack of confidence. A new haircut can make you feel like a new person. It can help you break out of your shell, and be confident. With that in mind, being barber to me would mean giving that child who can not afford a haircut for the first day of school a free one, or that young man who is going for a job interview a free haircut and some tips on how to be successful. I would also like to reach out to our homeless community monthly with free haircuts and meals .I want to be a positive difference. Someone who will never turn someone way that needs that extra boost of confidence and compassion. I want my son to see how honorable it is to not only work for what we want , but also to give to those that need . Please if you can donate, or share I would be so deeply grateful. Both of those actions will bring me one step further to my goal!
