Help this Mama Finish College

I grew up in a single-parent household where education, good manners, and class were held at the forefront. My mom homeschooled me in her retail flower shop which enabled me to get my Associates of Arts Degree early, at 17. I was beyond thrilled when I was accepted to Gonzaga University with a partial scholarship and I started my journey there in the fall of 2012.

At the end of my second semester, I got pregnant. This put a huge stress on every area of my life- my finances being affected most significantly. My mom was as gracious as ever about it and helped me as much as she could through the birth of my daugher, Lahna Georgia, and has continued to help me by allowing us to live with her rent free while I took a semester off to master motherhood.

Now I'm ready to return to Gonzaga for my senior year wehre I'm just 23 credits away from earning my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. There's just one thing getting in my way- debt. I owe Gonzaga $1,519.43 and I can't register until I've paid that. Classes start September 2nd and I am completely committed to attending this fall and getting my degree in the spring. Please help me reach my goal and show my daughter that with determination and perseverance, she can achieve anything!
