I am in student debt over my head, unemployed for a few months due to illness, unqualified for unemployment because I was misclassified as a contractor for my last employer, and now I’m delinquent on my federal student loans, which means I can’t access any other loans. I was unable to complete school. I never thought I’d be in this situation, but I got here through a bunch of minor missteps, and some things out of my control. Now I’m not only delinquent on my loans, I can’t get new emergency loans to pay for rent. I have all the resources to get a job in the near future, and I’ve been actively looking, and I’ve taken several under-the-table gigs to get me by. I’m at the end of my rope in terms of savings and funding options.
I’m an accomplished writer, animator, artist, and designer, but I don’t have the portfolio to show for it because I’ve mainly worked in retail at Home Depot and Costco. The tiny company I had worked for in my last job is going under. There, I functioned as, essentially, a producer in all but title, and didn’t get to enhance my creative portfolio, or and none of the writing and pitches I wrote are usable for a portfolio. The skills I used there are not translating well into a resume. I didn’t game this situation well.
I just need some help to get out debt. I live in a house with three other people, but it’s still expensive. My parents have helped me as much as they can but they’re having a financial crisis too, from problems with my mentally ill stepbrother. I’m actually in serious debt to my mom too, and it’s straining our relationship.
I need $1000-2000 as soon as possible, to pay rent and avoid having to take out a title loan on my car, which I may not even qualify for. This money will help me get my finances under control, find gainful employment, without being overwhelmed by debts, rent, utility bills, and bounced checks. Any amount of money is a help.
If you help me, I promise to donate
