Save Our Student Organization

Hello. My name is Risako Murai. I was a treasurer of Japanese Student Association (JSA) of fall semester in 2012 at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. This student organization was established in 1987 and the main purpose of this club is that Japanese international students can interact with American students to spend more quality time while study abroad. I and 35 JSA members went to cabin trip in Utah in December, 2012. It was great experience for us to get interact with new people. However, I got sued by the cabin’s owner for the property damage and owed debt for $7,500. I had no idea where those damages came from, but still need to pay off the debt. For now, $3,800 had raised, but still need to raise $3,700 to pay off the debt. I’m working 20 hours per week (this is the maximum time for international students) and try to minimize living expenses every month. Most of my friends abandoned me since the court case and have no idea what else I can do. I’ll graduate next year and have to go back to my home country, so I have to pay off the debt as soon as possible.
