This past year I attended my first year of college in the most beautiful place in America. I’m a sophomore attending Sierra Nevada University in Lake Tahoe Nevada to study business and peruse my passion of playing lacrosse . As a student I have earned and received every scholarship available to me, both academic and athletic, however I do not come from a wealthy household. My tuition to attend SNU is 50k and after all my scholarships and grants I came up short and owe 6k to the school. By not being able to pay that last bit of tuition I am not able to register for classes this year.
I battle with anxiety and depression and don’t have many outlets available to me to keep myself calm and happy. School is something that keeps me engaged in life no matter how difficult the class. Lacrosse is my passion and is the main reason that keeps me going. When ever I have any stress in my life I know I can clear my mind on the field. SNU provides me with a serene environment, comfortable learning, and athletic opportunity. With your help I can return to school this upcoming semester. Any thing helps and is appreciated.
