Hi! My name is KJ. I’ll be going to college in about a year and I’ve been trying to save up for it, but money is tight and has been for a few years now so any time I have money saved up we need gas or food or this bill is going to go unpaid. And my mom would never ask for money from me or take it from my savings, but I just can’t sit there with enough money to fix the problem and not help. So here I sit with very little saved up and a long way to go. I plan on going to college out of state because no college near me supports the major I want and I can get better financial aid for the school aspect of college. However, to get there and live there I need to purchase a car, buy basic living essentials, get a laptop, and cover the first semester or so of costs that scholarships will not cover so I can focus on getting a good job instead of just any job. I do have a job currently, but I’m a high school kid in a college town so it doesn’t pay well even though it is the best job I can get. I’ve done the math. Many, many times. With the amount of money I spend monthly to help out around the house I’m never going to be able to save up enough, especially with just a year to do so. I’d need to work 30+ hours a week during school and 40+ hours a week on breaks. And that is without factoring in how much I need for my family. I do not want to start this next chapter of my life scrambling to figure out how to get to school, much less pay for it. I’m not asking for one person to fund my entire college experience from bachelor’s to doctorate, I’m just hoping that a few people will be willing to give me something to stand on before I have to do all of this on my own. I need help from someone else so I can still help out at home with the money I make at my job while being able to get somewhere with my savings. Anything helps. Absolutely anything. I just want to say thank you, for reading this far and in advance if you do decide to help. I couldn’t be more grateful. Have a wonderful day.
