Help My Black Muslim Friend Pay for College!!

Hello / Salam Everyone!!

My good friend (let's call her Fatimah for security reasons) has recently contacted me and asked if I could help her with this situation. She has always been such a joy to be around, laughing, and joking every time I see her, so I myself was surprised to know how much she had been going through with a smile on her face. 

Fatimah is a bright and intelligent young Muslim Black girl. In high school, she excelled with good grades. She was at the forefront of many rallies and demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. She was also the captain of her school's soccer team and maintained meaningful relationships with her classmates. 

Fatimah was working exceptionally hard in college and just finished her freshman year with a 3.5 GPA. However, in light of recent events, like COVID-19, she is unsure of whether she will be able to return to college for her sophomore year. 

Fatimah's mom passed away recently, leaving her all by herself to fend for financial obligations. Despite this, she worked hard on applying to multiple positions, in order to get funds for her next academic year. She was granted the position of Orientation Leader for her college (which pays a good amount of money that she was planning on saving for tuition.) However, because of COVID-19, her college had to make Summer Orientation online and therefore does not require the OL Leaders anymore. She also applied to be an RA. Fatimah is currently working a full-time minimum wage job and is saving up as much as she can to afford to go to college next year.

I myself believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the college experience. I am hoping to raise some funds in order to help my friend Fatimah out, as she has always been such a delightful friend to me. 

With your help, we can ensure she gets to go to college next year, In Shaa Allah. 

With all of the Black Lives Matter fundraisers and petitions going on, I can ensure you that if you choose to donate to this fundraiser, you will be directly impacting a young Muslim African American girl's life for the better.

If we get 500 people to donate $10, We can be one step closer to giving Fatimah the college education she deserves. 

Thank you so much!!!!
