Assembly Internship -- Albany, NY

Hi all. My name is Lorena Diaz-G., I am a 20-year-old junior in college. Many of you who know me, know I am avid activist for disadvantaged communities. I love giving back to my communities, but right now, I could use your help. I was accepted into the New York State Assembly Internship in Albany for the Spring 2020 session to continue fighting and organizing for equal rights, but alas, the moving expenses are inconceivable. 

I will need to pay rent for 6 months, as well as pay for gas, electricity, food, as well as basic hygiene and household amenities. In addition to this, I have to completely furnish my apartment. This includes: a bed, a mattress, a microwave, pots, pans, cooking materials, silverware, a fouton, window shades, a vacuum, broom/mop, shower curtains, rings, etc.. 

My move-in date is January 3rd, 2019, by which I will need to have provided nearly $2K in total for the security deposit and 1st month's rent. 

Anything anyone can offer is extremely helpful regardless of the amount. I am eternally grateful for all of you and appreciate your help in this matter. 

Thank you.
