Brain tumor survivor, scholarship money needed

I had a rough childhood. I was always getting angry and making poor decisions, depression was a constant and life threatening issue from a young age. At age 28, I was in my junior year at university but I started having seizures, I wrote it off as a result of too much stress from a full schedule. Finally, after a few years of grand mall seizures doctors performed an EEG brain scan, It showed a life threatening brain tumor. The doctors were appalled that I hadn't had the brain scan done earlier in my life. It was a rough time for me, of course I had to drop out of school, I couldn't walk or talk for quite a while after the surgery. The difference between my brain function now and before is incredible. I finally love life, I follow the teachings of a man named Ajahn Brahm. I no longer have unreasonable bouts of anger and depression. My goal is to get a degree in alternative energy engineering to help people install solar paneling and other forms of energy manufacturing in their homes. I am asking for funding to help me complete the degree that I started before the removal of the tumor. Seizures are still part of my life making work challenging sometimes but I have chosen to view it as they really saved my life because the tumor would have killed me if not found due to having a seizure in a government building.  I do have limitations as a result of the removal of the tumor but choose to see them as challenges that I will overcome. Thank you for your time, I wish you the best.53439420_1608509346348960_r.jpeg
