Help a First Generation College Student & Mother

53191602_1607624931541437_r.jpegI am a first generation college student and young mother of 2. I am working to obtain my bachelors degree in Social Justice and Human Rights.  I currently homeschool my 6 year old son and have not been able to get a job during the pandemic due to my premie son being extremely immunocompromised and having two auto immune diseases myself.  I have school fees that weren’t covered by my aid, scholarships or student loans.  After beating homelessness this year I have rent payments due, utilities and car payments. If I cant make all my payments I won’t be able to register for spring classes. School is so important to me and as a young single mom I have fought like hell to keep going. I obtained my associates degree in 2018, walked across the stage for my diploma 32 weeks pregnant- the first in my family to ever obtain a degree. Showing my kids that they can do anything that they want is exactly why I do what I do.  Please help me break generational cycles and accomplish my dreams.
