Hi! My name is Karla Cardoza, and I'm raising money to go to college at Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

I moved to the United States when I was 15 to live with my family. In the last two years, I have learned to speak English, made new friends, become a National Merit Scholar, graduated with Honors from Somerville High School, and been accepted to Lesley University. At college, my goal is to study social work and psychology so that I can become a psychologist and help other immigrant student like me integrate into the U.S. and follow their own dreams.

For more about me and my story, please check out the commencement speech I gave at my Enroot graduation:


Please help me reach my dream of becoming the first person in my family to attend college. Lesley University has awarded me a Presidential Scholarship (the highest level of aid the University provides), but I still need help covering the remaining tuition costs this year. The $11,200 I am looking to raise will allow me to finish this year debt free and purchase supplies for school. I will be living at home with my family while I attend university, so none of this money is going towards housing fees. My parents have always worked very hard to give me everything I need, but they cannot afford my college tuition as I also have two younger siblings. 

Thank you for your support!
