Help Jordan Stay In School


Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Through the years I have also witnessed the value of education, and I strive to put my scholarly duties above all else. Through this decision, I was able to take a different route that many my peers were unable to follow. I graduated in the top percentile of my high school and went onto enroll the prestigious engineering college known as Worcester Polytechnic Institute to pursue my dreams as a Mechanical Engineer. I am now a sophomore, and even though many obstacles have stood in my way throughout the past year I’m still determined to continue my education. I have consistently worked my way through any academic barriers that were put in front of me and have earned excellent grades. However, the one thing I cannot solve is money. Over the past, I was able to rely on loans and scholarships to get me through the financial side of college. But, for this coming year, my school has raised the tuition, and I am receiving less aid from scholarships. This has put me in quite a tough spot, and if I don’t come up with enough money, I may have to transfer out of the school. I have always dreamed of becoming a successful engineer and doing something that many people who come from the same background as me haven’t been able to do. I am determined to graduate from college so that one day I will be able to reach out to other children in need of help with funding their education. Please help me achieve this goal. Any donations will help.
Thank you Jordan Counsel
