Kevin's Dream of a College Education

Hi! I'm Kevin Bhagrat and I'm currently trying to raise funds for my college. With the start of the new academic year rapidly approaching and the  intimidating season of college applications. Ever since elementary school, I've always seen my education as an important aspect of my life. I always strived to do my best, hell, even past the expectations that I thought was set for myself. From elementary school to middle school and especially high school, I always aspired to pursue my goals and dreams. Just as millions of people around the world have experienced the harsh realities of COVID-19, I had as well. Having lost my father when I was just twelve years old, Growing up without a father contributed towards me having to leave high school and having to start work in order to support myself and my mother. Not having the opportunity and support (Financially) to pursue my tertiary level education has always caused me to feel as if it'll never happen but I've always kept pushing and fighting. For the past few years I've been working very hard to save with the hopes of being able to finally begin my tertiary level education but so far have been unsuccessful. Even more so since Covid came along and placed me out of a job since February of 2020 of which I've been using all of my savings to support myself and mother. I've always believed that education is one of the main keys towards living a successful and happy life and being able to live a successful and happy life while ensuring my mother is being taken care of is my ultimate goal. It would make not only myself but also my mother so happy if we could reach my goal in order to be able to continue my education. When I enter college, I want to study optometry and go on to medical school to pursue a career as an optometrist. However, with the lost of my job, the security of my future is unclear because I don't have a source of income to help fund my education or support my mother who depends on me. Hopefully, with this fundraiser, I'll be able to help fund my first year of college while I work towards funding my own career. Any amount would definitely be appreciated and I genuinely thank you for reading this.
