Sierra Get Graduate Degree in Spain

I have just been accepted to a University in Barcelona to get a masters in Fashion Management. I initially was going to get a loan, however, after asking countless
banks, I am unable to get a loan for a school overseas that is not connected with a USA university.

Thus far, I have been blessed to get a Bachelor's of Science in Apparel Design & Technology from Purdue with a minor in Spanish and concentration in retail business. I've received awards every semester for my 3.5 and above GPA, and got a certificate for Spanish from a University in Madrid. Throughout college, I interned and modeled in Spain, Atlanta, and now work with Barbara Bates here in Chicago. However, the fashion industry is extremely competitive and even harder for a young African American woman to excel in.

In order for me to truly succeed in this industry, I need an edge to help me stand out amongst my competition.

If I am able to get the funding to study in Barcelona, I will do an intensive program where I can get my masters in a year, study a few weeks in Paris and Milan, and do a 3 month internship. This funding will help me to pay my tuition. School starts in January so time is of the essence.

This is an amazing opportunity that will help me eventually help others. I know that I was put on this earth not to be served but to serve just as Jesus did. I need your help as I grow towards my success so that I can ultimately give back
