Medical and Living Expenses Funding

Content warning: sexual assault, suicude, and rape

Hi, my name is Tima and I am raising money towards my security deposit as well as medical and education loan expenses. I have just turned 22 years old and I am a former student of Penn State University. In April of 2020 I made the decision to withdraw from school due to financial stress, unforeseen trauma, and my continually worsening medical state. I went through every avenue possible to find funding for school but was unlucky in that process. I see a therapist and psychiatrist and am on several medications which are costly for me at the moment. 

I've been in financial struggle for a while now. With my mental health steadily moving me downward into spirals of suicidal ideation, depression, and disordered eating, it has been a struggle for me to find steady work and a stable living situation in this year. I have been blessed to be taken in by close friends, whom I have been staying with since March, while planning my next moves. I was fortunate to come across an affordable apartment in Philadelphia, however despite my efforts to save money, medical expenses and bill collectors have been drying me out of any funds I am able to save. To ensure that I'm able to move, I am asking those who can to donate to this campaign and those who can't to spread it as far and wide as possible.

Right now I am facing a $2,000 medical bill from emergency care after I was raped in April. As well as expenses from Penn State for the Spring semester, though I am trying to fight that bill as I withdrew from the school. On top of that, I am trying to save money for my security deposit for my new home, and all the expenses that come with moving. Next month I will be starting to pay off my student loans as well. This is an urgent case as I have until August 1st to come up with the funds. 

On top of all of this, I am a black and latine gnc trans queer individual, first generation american, and muslim. It is against all my teachings to ask for assistance, but I am at the end of my rope and desperate for help at this point. If you can please share this campaign with anyone you think would be willing to donate, it would mean the world to me. 

Thank you for taking the time to listen.
