So this is a first for me. Never done something like this, but I’ve become desperate.
My name is Moses Robinson.
So about two months ago now, my partner and I made our move to Portland. He was hired for a new job out there and I was in the process of doing the same.
Unfortunately, my job being a retail job, the transfer did not go through, and that has now left me jobless. Knowing this was a possibility, I saved up some money, but definitely not enough to live off of for months.
Originally, my plan was to find a new job in retail, but quickly asked myself, “do I want to continue being stuck in retail? Or pursue my dream?”
I decided that coding school was what I wanted to do.
My problem with this option right now is the financing of it all. I’m in a situation where taking out a loan for the boot camp is not an option. My credit score is poor, and because of other passs dept, I have been denied, making my score even lower.
The help that im asking for here is not for all that debt – that is well over $20,000 at this point – but help with paying for the bootcamp. The bootcamp courses that I’m looking at are normally $8,000. Luckily, I was able to get a diversity scholarship from them and they brought that down to $4,000.
$4,000 is what I need. Those $4,000 is the help I need to help myself. Those $4,000 will help me acquire my dream job, and pay for the rest of my debt.
Please, any help at this point, would be amazing! The boot camp begins in October! In the mean time, I’m trying to find other ways to live personally. I just know that this one thing will help me help myself.
Thank you for reading and hopefully you can help.
