Hi! My name is Madison, I am 18 years old, and one thing that I was always proud of was that I was able to move out of my (toxic) home at the age of 17. I have been working 2 jobs to support myself since, I’m hopes of being able to go to back to school next semester. But there has been a few financial issues I am facing. Recently, I lost one of my jobs due to COVID. I was a receptionist at a small company. Within the same week, my other job had shut down due to COVID as well, for two weeks. Unfortunately for me, I was only working 20 hours at this job so my checks were small in compared to the 60 hour checks I was bringing in recently from working full time at the job I lost. A week after my second job opened back up, I was diagnosed with COVID. My manager told me that I am unable to receive compensation because I had used all of the COVID hours due to the first quarantine. I have filed for unemployment and today I found out that it was denied and I am not sure what to do about that. I am completely devastated right now. I have been saving to move out of my current apartment to a new one since the lease is up in a month, and I found one that’s near the school I am interested in going to. Because of my current financial situation, I have to use those savings for current bills (rent, car insurance, phone, utility etc…) so I will be unable to pay those first day fees in about 3 weeks that they are due. Those fees are about $2,000. I am not one to “beg” for money, my father always taught me that hard work will always help you. Unfortunately the time could not have been worse for the virus to come into my life like it has. Please, anything could help and I will appreciate even $5. I am so terrified that I will be homeless soon, and after losing my parents in my life I have no one to turn to.
