Help a Trans Girl Stay in the US

Sunny is a trans girl from Suadi Arabia who is studying in Arizona on a student visa. When her parents found out she was transgender they canceled the scholarship she was using to pay for school and housing. Being unable to pay, she has already been kicked out of the dorm she was living in and is now in danger of being kicked out of the school. If this happens, she risks being sent back to Saudi Arabia which is unsafe for LGBT persons (including imprisonment and the death penalty) and having to live with her family whom is hostile to her identity. She has applied for asylum but as it is a long process it's possible she could be sent back before asylum is granted. There are very few avenues open for her to raise this money on her own, given the restrictions that her immigration status places on recieving loans and scholarships and places she is qualified to work. Please help her raise the money to stay in school and in the US. Anything you can give makes a world of difference! 

Note: Please do not take it upon yourself to take any course of action on behalf of Sunny without first contacting her or Q&A as the situation she is in is very complex and delicate. Please message us if you have any ideas/concerns!
