UM Coding Bootcamp Fund

So I was recently accepted into the Univeristy of Miami's Full Stack Coding Bootcamp. This is an extremely amazing opportunity to be able to dive into a career I have always wanted to pursue! I've always been super passionate about tech but I never knew how to get started. Over the past year or so I've been taking classes on Code Academy and Udemy; getting accepted into UM has shown me that I am ready to take my next big step in chasing my dream!

For six to seven months (Late Jan 2018 to Early July 2018) I will be doing my best to live, breathe, and sleep code. It's going to be though but I'm motivated, excited, and prepared for it!

The total cost for the bootcamp is $10,000 plus the cost of a laptop. I would really like to come out of this with as little debt as possible (I will be working full time while going to this bootcamp). I'm only asking for $5,000 because I think I can save enough to pay the rest and worst case I can sell some stuff I own. I'm really hoping to hit my goal as soon as possible because I will be eligible for a $1,000 discount if I can pay the full amount by December.  Any donation is greatly appreciated. If you can't donate, a share means just as much to me <3
