Summer Tuition for Maestra Iliana


My coworker and friend, Maestra Iliana, needs our help! She is an amazing, caring, sweet and hard working young lady who is always ready and willing to help others. She must take two classes in the summer in order to be able to graduate in the Spring 2019 and she is having a hard time coming up with money to pay for the classes ($1,392 each class).

It has been a long and hard journey for her to complete her undergraduate degree at San Jose State University because of financial struggles. This summer she must take 2 classes in order to graduate in Spring of 2019. It is very important for her to finish her Bachelors in Education by then because her DACA or work authorization card expires in September 2019. Due to the political climate, she is unsure of her legal stance after September 2019.

She is currently eligible for the CA Dream Act that only covers ¾ of her Fall and Spring tuition but does not cover any summer classes. Please share and/or donate for her to be able to graduate on time!

Classes must be paid by May 31st, 2018.

Thank you in advance.
