College Tuition Help & Mental Health Project

I am a current high school senior who is struggling to find methods to pay for college tuition. I have put in a lot of effort into being a good student--pouring hours into doing homework and studying, tutoring friends, using external resources to learn ahead of the class, etc. I have about a 4.67 GPA (on the 5 point scale), take all GT, Honors, and AP classes (aside from music), and have already been accepted to the college of my dreams (The Culinary Institute of America). Even with this, scholarship searching has been difficult, as many that pay well are specific to colleges or involve a lot of prerequisites I'm afraid I can't make up this late into my high school years. I will continue my search nonetheless, but I am getting increasingly worried I will face student debt for the rest of my life. I am hoping a few kind strangers will help me out. Please. 

During my last year of high school, I have been working to encourage the conversation of mental health at my school. I've seen many a student struggle, which is only worsened by the workload, unhealthy competitive atmosphere, and pressure from teachers and administration. I have already provided a platform for students to express their concerns and open up about mental health to the administration. My next step is to start establishing a program that will allow students a safe space to speak out about their mental health, receive resources and help with school, and hopefully be able to make lasting friendships as we all come together under a common issue. I plan to take half of this fundraisers earnings and put it towards that cause, because I know these students are struggling just as much as I am. 

If you manage to find this and donate, thank you. I thank you a million times over. Even if it's just a dollar, even bit counts. I wish you a wonderful day. May it be filled with love, laughter, and joy.
