I am an African student pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I am passionate about tech and I would like to use the knowledge I get from my major to come up with innovative technologies that will make a positive difference in people's lives.

I come from a humble background and the journey to acquiring a proper education has been hard. My mother has struggled through to make sure that I get to advance even if it meant going without food. Education to me is my number one priority, I am not talented in sports and I cant sing, but I love mathematics and anything that deals with coding.

Unfortunately my journey still has obstacles, I have been dropped out of my classes for the fall because I owe the school a spring balance and cant register for classes without clearing it up. I attained a GPA  of 3.9 during the spring semester but still lack access to scholarship opportunities. I have tried to sell my blood plasma for money to pay for what I owe the school but still it isn't enough and she doctors have barred me from donating any more plasma because of the high return pressure of procedure and the damaging effects it is having on my veins. I have contemplated selling my kidney online but I had to reconsider because my mother is diabetic and has kidney problems and should she need one, I would be glad to offer her one because she would lose and arm and a leg for me and I would do the same for her.

My only wish in this world to get an education , so please whatever you can do to help will go a long way. Thank you.
