Recently at Academy of Art, I passed the Spring semester with a 2.0 average, as my school had told me that was what I needed to be in the clear. However, it was recently brought to my attention that that was not so, and I will not be receiving any Aid due to me having an overall GPA of 1.85 due to failing all of my Fall classes, and was later told that I had a 1.5 GPA, even though I have had only one F out of all my accumulative classes (three in which I have made up and passed). This was due to death of a friend, cancer in my family, taking on more than I could handle as someone who lives and is fresh out on their own, and poor time management of that semester, a trait I made pretty darn sure that I didn't follow this last semester.
To get back into Financial Aid's standings, I need to take at least two classes this upcoming Fall semester and score as high as I possibly can, and I can do that. The downside is that I need to raise over $5000 to do that. I have been rejected by two loans due to inexperience in credit, and I am stuck and scared for myself and my future. I don't want to quit school, and I want to be able to reach my goals and really show people what I am made of, make those that believed in me proud of me, and not let myself down and get my BFA. I can't do this without help. I scared to ask others for help, because everyone has their busy lives and their own struggles that they have to battle with. But I beg of everyone to please help me reach my goal of $5000. To help me reach out to those who are willing to donate to my cause. Every little cent helps. Thank you everyone. God bless.
