Help me finish my last semster of school

Hello everyone, my name is Deja Brown. I am an aspiring freelance graphic designer and illustrator living in Brooklyn New York. I am trying to finish my last semester of college and, like many of us, COVID-19 has been detrimental to my living and educational finances. I am attending the University of Northern Colorado and I can not continue my degree until the outstanding balance of $7,310.86 is paid off in full before the end of spring. My family is unable to assist and I have other finances like rent, groceries, and other outstanding debt that I am still chipping away at as quickly as I can. If I do not pay off this balance before the end of spring, I will be kicked out of school and unable to finish my graphic design degree.

It would mean the world to me if you could donate to help me finish my degree, anything helps! 

About my work: I am a black female illustrator and graphic designer who talks and breathes art. To me, art is more than expression- it’s a lifestyle. My bright pastel, often fantastical, scenes, and characters highlight black representation and celebrate both real people and fictional black characters. I have worked with COACH, Adidas, Champions, and many more individual clients. I hope to find a great design job to help support my art career and begin my journey as a successful artist, but since most design positions require a bachelor's degree, I must finish my last couple of credits, with your help, before this can happen. 

Anything helps- thank you so much!
