Lindsay Steadman  PAWCATUCK, CT

I am a rising senior at Mount Holyoke College.  I have paid my tuition on my own each year, and it always gets a little more expensive.  For the past three years I had a pretty decent job where I would make just enough money to pay my tuition and not require too many loans.  However, this summer my employer told me last minute they would not be taking me back.

I am now desperately trying to find a job, but it's late in the game for summer work, so I have not yet had any luck.  It is breaking my heart that I cannot find a job. I feel helpless and overwhelmed at the thought of what I will have to pay in about a month for my fall semester's tuition and again later for the spring. I like working and I like feeling that I've actually earned something after a hard day. While I won't give up trying to find some sort of employment, I am terribly worried. Worried that I won't be able to make enough money to pay for my last year of tuition at Mount Holyoke. And neither of my parents are in any financial position to help me, nor have they been for the past three years.  And I am trying to graduate with a little debt as possible.

I am a Psychology Major with a minor in Studio Arts. I'm in good academic standing, my GPA is above 3.4. I would like to work with children in the future, after graduation I hope to teach in some way. Whether it be teaching English in another country, working for Teach for America, City Year, etc... and then eventually go to graduate school and earn a Ph. D. 

It is with a heavy heart that I ask for any amount that you are comfortable giving. Any donation is appreciated and will help me finish my last year in college!

I don't know you, but I saw this on a friend's Facebook. I'm a rising senior who is also responsible for her own finances, but I'm one of the lucky ones -- I was able to declare myself independent and am asked to pay little to none every year. And although I don't have financial support from my parents, there are a lot of people in my life who have helped me along the way. I know it's not much, but I wanted to pay it forward as much as I could. Best of luck.
