I have never done anything like this before, but I am willing to give it a shot considering my circumstances.
I am a first-generation college student. I go to class full-time as well as work as a pharmacy technician to pay for my tuition and living expenses. I am in my senior year, about to graduate in May. I have been offered a seat at my top choice of pharmacy schools, but I am struggling immensely trying to pay all of my fees to accept my admission.
I come from a very low income family, so all odds were against me even getting to college, let alone getting to a doctorate program. I have been putting myself through my undergrad alone, with no help financially. My entire life’s work has been dedicated to this dream of pharmacy and I have worked my tail off in my academics to get to where I am today. I would be absolutely devastated if I wasn’t able to attend simply because I am not able to pay the admission fees required.
I have already spent everything to my name to pay the $500+ just to apply. Now, as I am struggling to recover, I still have to come up with the money or a $70 charge for a background fee and then fees for drug testing, required shots and tests, etc.
Not only this, but I still have to pay for my last semester of undergrad tuition in a few months. If I am able to pay these fees and reserve my seat at pharmacy school, I am also going to have to move to a different state and find a new apartment, which is going to be another financial strain.
I know I am probably not as deserving as many of the people that post on this site. But, if I am given the opportunity to pursue my dream and get to and through pharmacy school, I hope to one day return any generous donation given to me to other people on this site. I just need help getting there at the moment.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story, even if there was no donation. I appreciate it very much.
