I began college at the age of seventeen. After facing rather difficult and harsh childhood circumstances, I have been on my own and separate from any family help--financially or otherwise. (Thankfully, I found a loving community of folks at a local church, and they have loved me more than I could ever ask).
Although it has been incredibly difficult at best, I've always found a way to scrape by and afford the nearly $35,000 tuition from my university. This past September, I spent nearly a month in the hospital after a rare type of bacteria left me battling sepsis. As a result, I lost my employment and have been unable to make tuition payments or pay any money toward graduation fees.
If I do not pay the money owed for tuition, I cannot begin classes. It is rather difficult sharing this with others, but my friends encouraged me to be courageous and I trust their words.
Any little bit helps--even if you cannot give financially, words of encouragement are a huge help, as well!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I really want to receive my degree in May, and I would be more than thankful to receive your help achieveing my goal.
