Help me pay for Fire Academy!

Hey everyone,

I'm reaching out to all my family, friends and coworkers and am asking for all the help I can get right now. As you know, I had successfully raised enough money from my last Tuition fund for EMT-B Class that I am currently taking and will be done with class in 6 weeks! As excited as I am, I couldnt thank those of you who had donated to that fund enough. Because of those donors, I am here today. Finishing EMT-B will make me halfway finished until I am certified to become a Firefighter however... I still have one more class to go and I am asking for help one last time!

As you know by now, May 31st, 2013 had changed me. I never knew who I truly was until the horrible news I recieved that evening... the loss of a great friend, Anne Sullivan. She along with 3 brothers had lost their life battling a 5 alarm fire at the Southwest Inn Motel that day, when the wall had collapsed. Weeks went by andI still was not myself. Anne was a courageous young lady who was full of spirit, full of love, full of happiness... it wasnt until months later that I had realized she had passed a gift to me, or so I feel. I went to bed one night and my dream took me back to a conversation I had with my mother years ago. I looked at my mother and said, "mom, if there was one job that i could have, to help others, to make a better world a better place.. I want that job. Thats what would make me happy." When
I woke up that morning... I had a passion in my heart, inspiration... to become a Firefighter. Anne has been my inspiration ever since and motivates me every day spiritually. This is who I have become, this is me and I have finally found my true passion and purpose in life. My Calling.

I am currently volunteering with Rosenberg Fire Department since April 2014 and it has been the best experience I have ever had. I am needing all the help I can get tofulfill my dream of becoming a Firefighter and am asking everyone for help one last time. I still have a ways to go, but $10 will go such a long way!!! Please help me reach my dream.. its the final step I have to take for this new Journey!

Thank you in Advance, Much Love - Jocelyn
