Talk about a bitter pill to swallow...
11 years ago and after starting a family, Janess begins what she knows will be an ardous grind of an education.
Not because of all the science classes that produce more drop-outs than passing grades...
Not because only a small fraction of people with backgrounds similar to hers ever acquire any higher ed...
What makes getting a science degree so difficult is the fact that she's got to do it while raising two kids, managing just enough money to get by, and riding out multiple economic storms as she and her husband make significant and risky career changes.
I'm not here to complain about the injustices of life, or to make you well up with sympathy tears.
It's plain and simple.
Janess was accepted into a very competitive BSN program that would be completed in 2 years...
If she can pay for it.
So if you can lend a hand, I'm asking you to.
Not just because she so obviously deserves a chance to finish what she started...
But because she doesn't have it in her to ask for help.
That's just the type of person she is.
So please, if you can, lend a hand. And thank you.
