I am humbling myself and Kamilah to ask for help in getting her through dental school. As some of you know Kamilah is my great niece. Her mother and grandmother, my sister, passed away within months of each other when she was a senior in high school. She has always had aspirations of becoming a dentist. She was able to go to Howard University and earn her BS in health science. She was invited to MeHarry Medical School to attend their masters program which was required for entry into Dental School. She is now in dental school. While there she lost her uncle, dad and grandmother within months of each other. Quite frankly I don't know how she has continued to function. Well she is, and is doing quite well in school. She is unable to work due to her course load and is currently living off of student loans.
She was in a car accident and her car was totaled. She was not hurt. Her insurance proceeds are going to help pay off her car with a small balance left. Needless to say she cannot afford another car. Living in Nashville and having to stay at school for all hours of the night, a vehicle is required. She needs good reliable transportation so that she will also be able to drive back home during breaks as flying is too expensive for her budget.
Thus I am setting up this gofundme request as a last resort. If ever there was someone to help, she is the person. She is a product of Achieveable Dream Academy and exemplifies that program. Any amount would be helpful. If I could buy her a car I would, but circumstances prevent me from doing so.
I am sure Kamilah would rather I not do this as she is a very proud young lady. Likewise I am a very proud person but sometimes you have to set pride aside!
Any funds remaining after a vehicle is purchased will be used to help with living expenses while she is in school!
