Hello! My name is Natalie Landaverde, and I am a rising sophomore at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. I'm currently working toward a double major in Psychology and Art History with a minor in Spanish. I'll be the first person in my household to receive a degree, and my dream is to be able to use my knowledge and experiences to provide mental health care to teenagers in underfunded and disadvantaged communities. While I am incredibly lucky to have friends and family that support my endeavors, my parents and I are struggling to come up with the funds needed for my tuition. My parents have three other children younger than me, and my parents work as much as they can to provide for us. The annual tuition was raised without warning, and my current scholarship and loans won't cover the $2000 needed for my sophomore classes. My mother was denied a Parent Loan, and I will not be able to officially enroll for my classes without paying off the balance. Please consider donating any amount possible to assist my family and me in paying the remainder of my tuition. With your help, I'll be able to further my education and continue to make my family and friends proud.
