My name is Keisha and I am a graduate at National University. I am currently studying Healthcare, and my dream is to become a nurse so that I can help as many people as I can.

I created this page on this fundraising platform because my family and I are in dire need of financial assistance for this upcoming school year. Unfortunately, my father had to go on social security and would not be able to help me with anything. My mom job is not paying her the amount of money that she used to make due to covid-19. Because of this, we are struggling to pay our mortgage and are considering having to sell our house. I am terrified that we do not have the money to cover my tuition for this semester. My parents’ credit score is also struggling so we are not able to take out any loans from the government. All of it is extremely difficult and stressful to deal with, and is only being exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. With move-in being so soon, I am extremely scared that my family and I will not be able to make ends meet for my final school year. I am hopeful that this fundraising platform will potentially help me during this difficult time.

I was able to find a job at a hospital but it's not much since I'm so far behind on bills. And not to mention my daughter, need things as well.

As I have hopefully explained to you throughout the contents of this letter, I have an undeniable love for National University and the community that I have been fortunate enough to be a part of as a student. I have met so many incredible people that have challenged me to be the best version of myself every single day. My professors have pushed me to learn as much as I can in my classes, my advisors have offered countless opportunities for me to take advantage of,  and my friends have inspired me to be the person that I have become to this day. This is home, and it is the place where I feel that happiest. It is the place where I want to earn my degree. As an alumnus of this institution, I plan to reach out to current students and answer any questions they may have and to answer questions to help other students who are struggling financially, because I truly believe that no one should be deprived of an education as  because of financial incapability.

With all of that being said, I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this letter and consider helping me finish my journey and to inspire my daughter no matter what hardship pops up that you keep fighting and to believe in your dreams and to never give up. I hope that I have communicated my love for my education and how it's so important thatI finish and to keep my promise to my daughter and grandmother before she passed. And anyone else who is generous enough to help. Thank you so much, and I hope that you and your family continue to stay safe and healthy during this time.

Thank you...
