Help me keep my classes!

I'm sad to say that there's a possibility I won't be in school for my second semester at LCAD.

After all my federal grants, loans, and my merit scholarship for this year, I still have a balance of $4,926 for the semester's tuition.

I applied for two separate private loans with my cosigner, but we were unfortunately denied, and I have no other cosigner to apply with. After doing some more research, I know I will likely be denied for anything I apply to on my own as well; my credit experience is just too new.

Other than a private loan approval, my school will keep me enrolled so long as I pay for 1/3 of my tuition balance by Tuesday, September 9th (the day classes start)!

That amount comes out to $1642 for me to gather by that day.
Unfortunately, I just moved and started a brand new job, so it's not possible to get that together on my own!

Despite how much I hate asking friends for assistance, school is more important to me than anything else. I would never ask for assistance like this if I had other options.

If you are able to donate, that would mean the world to me. I'll never forget the generosity of anyone that supports me.

Even if you're able to loan me something temporarily to get to my goal on time, I'd be more than happy to discuss repayment with you. I make all of my scheduled debt payments on or ahead of time, and am willing to be completely transparent.

I am also more than happy to make any kind of artwork on a name-your-price basis in return!! I'm willing to draw anything you can think of in any style you'd like, although people, characters and animals are what I do best.

Also, if I don't end up enrolled this semester, I can absolutely repay anything lent or donated! I have no intention of asking for funds outside of tuition, unless you explicitly tell me otherwise.

Literally anything helps. Even if you're unable to contribute (which I fully sympathize with), sharing this as much as you can is just as helpful.

I'm in a very tight time crunch, so spreading the word could mean make or break!

Feel free to shoot me a message on any social media, message thru gofundme, or reach me by any other method of contact.

Thanks a million for your support!!
