My name is Haley and I am a 35 year old, single mother who lives in Louisiana. I have literally exhausted any other option of getting the funds that I need before I came here.
My life up until now, has been riddled with trauma, heartache, and little to no support from family, friends, or anyone else. I was severely abused as a child, both physically and sexually. I have been raped several times as an adult. I suffer from C-ptsd from these traumatic events. I say all of that to say, I have had it rough. Life has not been kind, and I have never been given anything. I have worked since I was 16 and I have never asked anyone for anything.
I have the opportunity to finally go back to school and get the degree I have always wanted. I have the funds through student loans and financial aid to cover tuition, however I am also in need of a couple of items to get started. I need a new laptop, I need to pay my internet service up for a few months because it is online school, and I need to be able to pay my rent for two months so I can focus on school. I recently lost my job due to downsizing, and I am currently looking for a new job, but it is taking some time. I don’t have good credit at all, due to my ex-husband using my social to ruin it. If I could get this money, I would be able to finally follow my dreams. I take care of my three children, alone, with no help from either of the fathers. I want to get this degree so I can get a good paying job, and also to show my children that if you never give up, you will eventually be able to follow your dreams.
If I was able to, I would simply take out a loan and pay it back over time. I am not, however, so here I am. Doing the one thing my parents would roll over in their graves about. I’m begging. I am trying so hard to be everything my kids need for me to be. I need this so badly, and I wish that weren’t the case. I hope one day when I’m in my Psychology career that I can also help someone in need like me. I appreciate the time you are taking to read this post, and I hope that no matter whether you can help or not, that you have an amazing life because just being willing to help is so very important.
