Help me pay for my Junior year of college

My name is Ainara, and I am a 20 year old Afro-Latinx woman. I attend Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina, and I am pursuing a B.A in global studies and political science. I am the first person in my family to pursue a college education, and I do not have much support from my family financially in doing so.  I have been awarded a generous amount of financial aid from my institution due to my 3.8 GPA and my community involvement and activism. However, I still need to pay for my room and board and textbooks which leaves me with a bill of $7,000. I came to the United States from the Dominican Republic at the age of eight to live with my mother, and had to relearn cultural norms as well as the english language. As a young girl in school I struggled with my writing and language proficiency, yet I worked hard in school at perfecting these skills and I am now a writing tutor at my college. Your support will allow me to continue my education in global studies and politics, and inspire immigrant girls who don't see themselves succeeding in the academic field. If you are considering supporting me, please do before the end of July. Thank you so much!
