From Jackson to Cambridge: Help me get to Harvard

Hello, friends! I am endlessly grateful to announce that I have been accepted into the Harvard Graduate School of Education for a masters in Education Policy and Management. I plan to use this degree to pursue educational leadership opportunities that will help me make widespread changes across education in the SouthEast. 
Although I am extremely excited about this change, I am also very stressed about the cost. I will be covering most expenses with loans, but I have some expenses that are coming up sooner than loans will be provided. I have found an amazing and affordable basement apartment to live in that is walking distance from campus, so my goal now is to secure enough funds to pay my rent and the cost of living for the first few months that I will be in Cambridge until I am able to acquire the money from my loans. 
Anything that you are able to give to help me secure my first few months of living in Cambridge would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much for your love and support during this transition.
