Barnabas Prep College

My name is Kyle Kirby. They say I am high functioning autistic. I take care of my own personal care needs. I do my own laundry and keep my room clean. I even clean my little sisters room. I unload and load dishes while watching you on TV. I know how to clean and like things neat and clean. Schedules and routines are important to me. They make me feel safe and secure.
They tell me I have a low IQ but I have worked really hard and graduated from high school May 15, 2014. My goal is to live independent and get a job. I have taken the culinary class at my high school for the last 2 years. I really like it. I also work at the coffee shop at school. I want to work in food service. And I have big dreams of owning my own restaurant someday.
I want to be like every kid. I want to go to college, drive and have a cellphone. I would like to attend a 9 month college program called Barnabas Prep. It is a Life Skills based college to help reach my goals. My parents just can not afford the tuition. I will be so grateful and appreciate any help you would be able to give me. 
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
Kyle Kirby
