First Generation, Biola University Student Fund

Hi everyone! My name is Helen and I am a full-time, junior year student at a private Christian University, Biola University. As a first-generation American and student to graduate high school and attend college, it has not been an easy journey for me, especially because I did not grow up in an English speaking home. Although, my passion for pursuing a business professional career has given me the dedication to keep going regardless of the disadvantages that first-generation students have. I am also interested in Public Relations and if I can continue school with your support, I plan to accept an offer of becoming an Assistant Director for a student-led Public Relations Agency on campus!

With my hard and persistent work, I also recently got accepted into business school and will start my marketing concentration classes this fall! I am super excited but I am in need of tuition money. Especially with the pandemic, my means for paying for college has been uncertain. I feel like I've worked hard to get to where I am with my career but money is holding me back. Although I have been feeling uncertain if I could pay for my career, attending Biola has made me realize the power in trusting in the Lord and so trust and pray that He will provide. I would appreciate any donation or to my Venmo if easier, @helen-karina

Thank you for your time and donation in advance! God bless!
