Please help Monique graduate in 2015

Hello everyone!

My name is Rebecca and I am currently fundraising to support my daughter, Monique’s final year at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. 

If you know Monique already, you know that she is a very talented and wonderful person to be around.  She has been working so hard the past few years to get a good education and fulfill her goal of obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Degree.

Monique has taken on the difficult task of working at a full-time job and working at an unpaid internship several miles from home to support going to school part-time.  This really should be school full-time and work part-time but with the skyrocketing cost of education she does not have much choice.  She was recently and unexpectedly laid-off from her full-time job that she depended on to pay tuition and fees to the private school.  I try to help Monique as much as I can; unfortunately, we have very low funding from me as I am a single, self-employed mother of two daughters. 

The guidance counselors at the Academy of Art University have advised her that if she can attend school on a full schedule she will be able to graduate by this time next year.  That would be amazing and Monique would finally be able to check that goal off her list.  I would love to see my daughter dedicate and enjoy her last year of school with 100% of her time and effort focused on graduating and securing a rewarding future.

Your donations will go directly to payment of tuition, fees, books required for graduation in 2015.  Anything you can spare is much appreciated and no amount is too small, everything is helpful.

Here is the link to her portfolio:

Thank you in advance for your love and support and to make this possible for Monique.
