Medical Bills and Grad School

Dear Family and Friends,

Recently, I have fallen under a bit of a hard time financially. I have had the blessed opportunity to attend California State University Northridge in the Communication Studies Department and have also received acceptance into the Teaching Associate-Ship program in which I will be teaching an Undergrad Public Speaking course! In order to qualify for the program however, I must take summer courses to fulfill the requirement I had not fulfilled as an Undergrad since I didn't get my Bachelors degree in Comm Studies. Financial aid is available to me once the regular schooling starts but summer school must come out of my own pocket, which I am at a loss for. The total amount I owe without Textbooks is $4000.

To add to this already excessive amount I am asking for, My health issues as of late have buried me even deeper, about another $3800. Coming from a place of truth, I have never felt alright asking for help with finances, because I believe nothing is free and we must work for what we want and need. However, I am reaching out this time because I truly need a little help. BUT, in asking for such a huge favor I will return it. For any donation made, I will send you a print of my photography, of your choice! I appreciate anything you can give, and if you cannot, thank you for even just being in my life and supporting me in my endeavors. Thank you for hearing me and I look forward to sharing the love!
