Okay I'll be totally transparent with you guys, I'm trying to go to The University of New Haven and be the FIRST of my family to actually go to college. I am fighting to pursue a career in the Computer Science field. New Haven is the holy grail of all schools for me and they have been very kind to me with financial help. I have received about 25,000 dollars in scholarships from the school and the government and about 5,000 in loans from fafsa, I still need 24,000 dollars by July 25th to go. This is just for the first year. Of course the grind does not stop here! I will be steadily applying for scholarships and grants still to cut down on the tuition and fees but any and everything helps. I've applied for different student loans but as a fresh 18 year old with no credit whatsoever to my name.. I can't seem to get accepted for the loan WITHOUT a consigner. I know NO one financially able to help me. My family wishes me the best however I do not have the financial help some other kids may have been fortunate enough to have. I am not the type to give up on anything. I am definitely not expecting to make 24,000, I would would feel blessed to make even a portion of it. I and my family would appreciate any help you guys can offer. I used to think gofundme's were for scammers, now I find myself needing one of my own. Please and Thank everyone for their kind help .
