Going bald for tuition

$45,000 goal

Campaign created 3 months ago
I am shaving my head ( and donating my hair to Locks of Love) to raise money for school tuition to become a graphic designer.


I am 32 years old and have worked since the age of 13. From ages 13 to 18, 75% of my paycheck went to helping my family with bills. At age 18 I moved out on my own and have supported myself since them. No one has ever supported me and very rarely has anyone ever helped me with bills.

I work six days a week in the service industry and I helped support my mom for a few years before she received her retirement

The tuition for 4 year associates degree is 42,000.00 but I kept seeing extra fees so I made my goal 45,000.00 This number is almost impossible for me to imagine because I make about 1/3 of this a year. But GoFndMe has made me feel excited again about this goal.

I will be shaving my head in honor of my dad on his birthday june 23 2018 he died of suicide ten years ago. He was a great dad. I am bipolar like he was and getting help through MHMR Texas.

Being Bipolar can hold you back from a lot of jobs but graphic design is perfect for me. I have a learning disorder dyslexia that has held me back and really paralyzed me for years.

I dropped out of high school and worked so hard to get my G.E.D. but I have never had the money to go back to school. 

As I am sure you read the many grammar errors so far. I am so excited to get tutored in grammar and learn as much as I can. Afterall I strongly belive the best way to fight dyslexia is to always be reading and learning.

I will  be donating my hair to locks of loves. And I will be posting videos and updates about it all on my blog Ashtamisprime.com 

I am not trying to pity myself, everyday I wake up and count my blessings. I just wanted to be honest and show you what I have overcome. To show you why this is life changing for me and explain the back ground of why this plan is so perfectly made for me.

If you want to donate but don't have the funds then that is ok. You can help just as much by sharing my link. 


Thank you so much for any future support. It is amazing to think of anyone wanting to help out someone else. Thank you Thank you Thank you for reading my story and thank you for even thinking about donating.

Thank you 

Here are a few thoughts on me shaving my head.
I always wanted to shave my head to avoid flyaways but when I found out I could donate my hair to locks of love I thought what a great way to better myself and help out a child needing some love.
This will be the first time I have ever shaved my head.
My mom keeps saying " now ASHLEY we already decided against this"
My sister thinks I will look like Evey from V for Vendetta
