My name is Lorin Bass and I am an incoming freshman at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. I graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, Alabama with an advanced diploma with high endorsement, a 3.7 GPA and a rank of number 10 in the class.
I plan to major in marketing and work to build a brand that solely focuses on pushing ethnic women into mainstream beauty, media and fashion industries. I look around and I see the lack of positive representation for women of color and, I feel it is extremely necessary because it will help build confidence and self esteem in in the future female leaders of the world.
I have worked hard to get to where I am now and I am almost ready to fully chase my dream however, I have a problem. I am short $2000 for tuition and fees for the upcoming fall semester. I come from a low income single parent home and things have not been easy. My family members are trying there best to help me but they can only help so much. I am a first generation high school graduate and college student therefore, my goals do not revolve around me at all. If I can get past this one hurdle I will be able to build my future and build a foundation to provide for my family and give back to those who have given so much to me. If you would please consider helping me or even just spreading the word that would mean the world to me.
