My Washington D.C Internship

$710 of $850 goal

Raised by 7 people in 22 months
Greetings family and friends. My name is Jose Roberto Mercado and I am a recent graduate of the University of California, Berkeley. I studied Social Welfare and Legal Studies, and I am extremely prideful to say that I am the first in family to graduate from college.

This summer, I have been interning for the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). NIFA is an educational granting agency that works under the U.S. Department of Agriculture. My internship experience, thus far, has been remarkable. I am working on meaningful projects and I have had the opportunity to make thoughtful exchange with distinguished individuals that add exponential value to my professional network. Indeed, I have gained new skills and abilities that will enable me to stand out in today's competitive workforce.

I feature my parents in my GoFundMe profile picture because they are central to my story. Both of my parents have wholeheartedly supported me in my dreams of coming to our nation's capitol, Washington, DC. They understand that this experience will enable me to grow, not only as an individual but also as a young professional. While my parent have played a key role in funding my DC housing cost, they can not do it all alone. Hence, I am seeking financial support from YOU to help me cover the costs of basic living necessities.

I welcome support of all forms and sizes. It is not easy to make a contribution, which is why I would like to thank you in advance. I can assure you that I am working hard and diligently to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

If you wish to support me, feel free to click on the "Donate Now" link; however, be aware that GoFundMe charges a processing fee for each donation. Alternatively, you can send donations to my PayPal account to assure that I receive 100% of your donations.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and investment in my professional development.
