As a result of health issues Marie was forced to drop out of college and return home. In September, after several years battling those health issues, Marie finally returned to school to pursue a degree in Computer Science.
Marie doesn't come from a wealthy background, and was relying on grants to support herself during her education. Unfortunately, one month into the semester she was informed that the monthly stipend she was relying on to survive had been cut by more than half, leaving her only $100 per month to buy food and other necessities.
Without additional support Marie will be unable to continue her education, and will be forced to once again drop out of school and return home.
Marie has been an integral member of the TMBS community since it's inception, and as a community we cannot allow this financial hardship to stand in the way of her education.
The starting goal amount represents the difference between her current stipend and the amount she was initially expected to receive over a 12 month period. Let's pull together as a community and help Marie survive through school.
Left is best!
