My name is Rhyarna McBride, and I will be going into my Sophomore year, this coming September, studying Fashion Design at Columbia College in Chicago. My current GPA is 3.89, and I was on the Deans List, both semesters, for my Freshman year. My dream is to one day own my own clothing company, and create a substantial difference in the fashion world. I started this GoFundMe account to ask for your support with my educational studies, and hopefully make a donation so I can continue to study the thing that I am most passionate about. The reason why I have created this fundraiser is that my Mother and I have tried everything to raise the money, but yet we are still lacking the funds for this college. We both have applied for several loans/scholarships and have been denied, and at one point I thought that I would not be able to return to Columbia my sophomore year because of this financial setback. I have recently started an online shop, rhystore.com
, but since it is still a "baby" in the business world, it hasn't provided a strong income either. If you would like to purchase a product from my store, I sell art-related works such as custom paintings and cubbies for decor instead of donating I would appreciate that as well! I also have pictures, on my website, of some of the clothing items that I have created this year and last year. I just want to express my gratitude in advance for your donation!
