Give a Little to Help a Lot

This fundraiser is to help raise money for my friend Angel Rather to continue her education at George Mason University, where she is studying Political Science and is aspiring to practice law in the future. Angel is the most hardworking person I know and has always been a driving force in fighting for others and doing what is right. She studied hard to be able to attend her dream school and is currently working 8-hour shifts 6 days a week in order to pay for her education and to help support her family. Angel has always been there for me and is like a sister to me. Through thick and thin she has offered me support and love and has been by my side since high school. I created this GoFundMe as a way to help her be able to continue her education at GMU. She is such a brilliant mind and a vibrant soul that has worked too hard to have her education be taken from her. She was awarded the first-ever Community Change Maker in Powhatan County due to her passion for activism and diversity and has had straight A's since entering college.  She also founded Powhatan High School's first-ever club centered around educating the student body on issues in our world such as racism, inequality, and being an ally. This club is called Diverse Hands At Work and is still in action even after she graduated. Wherever she sees an opportunity to better herself and those around her she seizes it. She is somebody that is overly giving and should have the opportunity to continue her academic career at GMU. I know that with support, she can and will do great things. I am asking that even if it is a small amount, that you find it in your heart to donate to and share this fundraiser; help me give back to somebody who has already given so much to me and those around her.
