Help Emily's Dreams Come True!

I am asking for help in raising 5,000 dollars so that I can afford to attend school and become a professional nail technician.

Nail art and nail care have always been my biggest hobby, and recently I realized I want to turn my hobby into a profession. I have had a few amazing and fulfilling jobs in my working career, but I have always been afraid to go after a dream because of money and the risk that comes with trying something new. Anyone who knows me or has worked with me in the past knows that I am a very motivated person. I want a job where I can be creative and help people, but I can't do it without your help!

Because I have Crohn's Disease I am unable to cut corners in certain areas of my life. I also have to keep a sort of safety net of money because my illness can take a turn for the worse at any moment. During school I will be balancing two part time jobs, but I want to be able to give 100% of myself to my education so that I can turn my dream into a lasting career.

The breakdown of cost for my schooling is as follows:
Tuition: $3,250.00
Student Equipment: $815.00
Registration Fee: $100.00
Total Cost: $4,165.00
 
The remaining $835 will be used towards materials and furthering my education outside of a school setting through workshops and mentoring. If everything goes as planned I will be in school by next month (September 2017)

The school I will be attending is fully licensed and uses the most up to date equipment and products. There are many wonderful salons in my area and surrounding areas so my after school job prospects are promising.

I really appreciate you taking the time to read this, and I really really appreciate any support through donations or sharing or words of encouragement. It is not easy for me to ask for help or to take a risk of any kind and I am grateful for your kindness.
