A Little Down On My Luck

Hello! My name is Keara Arnold and I am second year college student attending UC Santa Cruz. 

These past few months, financially, have not been the easiest on myself and my family. Due to circumstances out of my control, I am in a position where I don't have any financial aid at the moment. In addition, I also have a hold on my account which is preventing me from enrolling in the courses I need to take to graduate on time. I'm starting this GoFundMe to help alleviate some of the financial burdern that comes with being a college student from a working-class family.

I currently have a $675 hold on my account with an additional $55 late fee. I am hoping to raise just enough money as soon as possible to remove the hold so I won't have to forefit credit for classes that I need. I should be recieving my financial aid in about 4 to 6 weeks, but because I am on a quarter system, it will be too late to petition for the credits.

I plan on double majoring in Theatre Arts and Politics with a minor in Education, which is why my time and the classes I need to take are so valuable. 

If you are able to donate any amount, no matter how small, I will be truly greatful. I know that it is not always easy setting aside money for someone else's expensive, but I've exhausted all other resources that could help provide me with immediate relief. Thank you so much for taking your time to read this, it truly means the world to me.

Hello! As you all know, my GoFundMe was accomplished and surpassed within one day, thanks to all of you. I just received the money and I paid off my hold first and foremost. It will take 1-2 business days for the hold to be lifted and I can change my classes. The remaining money will go straight to other school related expenses. I will update you all once my hold has been officially lifted and I can put this GoFundMe to rest! I appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you to everyone who shared and contributed! I have surpassed my goal and I will be able to get this hold lifted within a week at the most. Words can't really express how thankful I am, so I will show it through working hard and succeeding so that I can give back just like how all of you have done to me. I am now more motivated than ever.
