Corey Baker's College Fundraiser

Hello everyone! My name is Corey Baker. I am a graduate of Chicago Public Schools (Manley Career Academy) and an honors student at Western Illinois University.  and all I want to is succeed. So far, I feel as though I have done that. However, in life sometimes we are faced with struggles! Being a college student is not easy: there are long hours, demanding deadlines, and distractions to say the least! With much determination, I was still able to finsh out my freshman year with a 3.6 GPA.  

Although I was able to achieve such a high GPA, finacially I have been stuggling.  With the recent budget cuts, student jobs have become very limited.  And, I am an independent student, unsupported by anyone financially other than myself. Although I'll still be working on getting a job this semster, I need a little finicially assiastance right now to lesson the burden of book cost. What I'm asking everyone to do is just try to help someone reach their dreams! Any amount will mean a lot.  

Specifically, I am in urgent need of 500 dollars for book money for fall semster, the help will be greatly appreciated! After I hit my $500 initial goal, I am hoping to raise at least another $900 so I can pay my tuition for the year. Then, the money I earn in my job can help with personal expenses.
