help a teacher get an education:)

Hi my name is Sophie Connell! I am currently going into my sophomore year at Bucknell University. I have struggled with learning disabilties my whole life and Bucknell has been so helpful in making sure I succeed. I worked extremely hard to get into Bucknell so that I could learn how to become the best teacher possible. Teaching is my passion; I want to make a difference in kids' lives the way some teachers have made a difference in mine. 

About a year ago, my father left for what he said was a buisness trip, but we soon found out he had different plans. He had moved to Nevada and started a brand new life, without my mom, three siblings and myself.  We relied on his income for everything, and he did not leave us with anything. My college tuition is just one of the many financial struggles we now face.  I don't want to have to put my passion on hold because of my father's mistakes.  Any and all donations are extremely appreciated and will go directly towards tution.
