Help Berneisha Get Back To College

Hello friends,

I'm writing you here to give you an update on your investment in my trip to Howard University. Last summer, you all came together to raise over $23k to give me the opportunity to attend Howard University. Long story short? I killed it. My report card screen shot is attached. I ended the year with a 3.5 GPA, getting a 3.77 my Spring semester. I also worked part time, and though it took me a little while, I found my place on Howard's campus. This is a feeling that I don't want to let go. I love Howard University!

One may wonder, "Why is Berneisha setting up a GoFundMe, again?" Although I reached the requirements to be considered on the dean's list, I was , unfortunately, granted no scholarship from Howard University.

We need to raise $20-$25k this summer. I'm frankly conflicted if this is even possible to do (fundraise each year) for three more years, but I already have a commitment of $5k towards this goal, and returning to Howard would be great. I am also waiting to hear from some additional external scholarship applications. How do you, the community, feel about raising $18k with me?

If the money isn't raised, I have plans to continue my studies at the University Louisiana Lafayette.
