Grad School Gift for a Great Girl

My name is Renée. I am a quirky, loving Chicago girl in my last year of grad school for Applied Linguistics. I truly value my independence and I even put myself through undergrad, but let me tell you: school is expensive. Fees are coming at me really fast, and I can only work so many hours due to my assistantship contract and my workload. I'm unspeakably grateful for this opportunity, but I am on a struggle bus trying to pay these school fees and my living expenses at the same time. The stress is affecting my productivity. I need that productivity to change the world!

I am kindly requesting whatever you want to offer to help pay my remaining fees and keep up with my expenses through May. Nothing extra. I have a pretty modest goal, as part of my personal policy of "take only what you need." Thanks in advance for your help. Even if you don't decide to help, I hope something awesome happens to you today.❤
