While growing up, I did not live a wealthy life but I certainly did reap the rewards of my father having a stable job and my mother being able to be there at my side whenever I needed her to be. I had everything I needed and was able to afford stuff that I may have wanted. It was not like I could afford traveling the world but I definitely could do stuff that a lot of my friends could not, yet, in 2019, the world would change in an instant than what I could keep up with. My life would change drastically and now here I am doing what any desperate person would do. I am a college student, this is my first year. At the start of the semester, my father was able to pay off my first semester as my school splits the bill in half, and financially we were going to be able to pay for next semester, however, within these few months to come, life would hit me hard and devastate my family. My parents were already having problems with their marriage, and my mother was firm on her decision to leave my dad, unfortunately, my dad did not take it well. I do not blame my mother as my father was an alcoholic and he would sometimes take advantage of her, she had to leave my father, of course, this would cause court fights between them. Nonetheless, my father went deeper into his addiction, he started using street drugs and was put in jail which was a great loss of money as he would not work. However, we were not in a bad situation yet, it was not until my diagnosis. I received a strong diagnosis that would forever change my life, it impacted me so hard that I began to suffer academically, my grades which were all A’s up to that point began to spiral down. This made me lose any chance of applying for scholarships, and yet I still had hope. However, my father’s addiction got worse and now we do not have any money, the fact, that you can see how powerful these drugs can affect someone makes you wonder why life can be unfair? Yet I still had hope, I knew that I could probably still find a way to pay for my tuition, however, something terrible happened. A friend of mine had let me borrow their car, and he had let me borrow it because I did not have my vehicle at that time. And I had used his car previously and we were really close friends, however, in Boone where I study, there are a lot of deers, and unfortunately, a deer hit his car while I was driving. I told him I would own up to pay for his car. But I know how bad I am financially, and unfortunately, he does not come from a good financial background. So I know how imperative it is for him to be compensated but with my problems, I am so stressed and see no way to be able to compensate him in such a reasonable time. I fear for our relationship, in these recent weeks, we have bonded pretty close that I don’t want to lose that bond. He’s a good person, and he says that it is okay as it isn’t my fault but that is what makes matters worse, he’s such a good person, and neither of us deserves this life. I just only want help to pay for his car, at least, that’s all for now. I can take a semester off, to save up and pay for my studies next year. I humbly ask for help, and I promise that if I ever make it in America, I promise I will help someone in need. If you need proof of anything, I can easily send it. I have no reason to lie, and finally thank you for reading my story, even if you don’t donate because at least you took the time of your day to read this.
