Hello, my name is Jamal I’m a 19 years old I’m a first generation college student and I’m also the only person in my family to graduate high school. I’m currently ending my freshman semester of college I have a 3.85 GPA and I’m a commuter. I’m from east st.louis, IL and I would like help on my journey. Being in college is hard as it is and to add the fact that commute with no family contribution I’m doing this all on my own.
My mom takes care of my grandmother and my mom is also sick and I come from a low income family. I can’t ask for much from them but a few bucks every now and then when I Need to catch the bus to school on some days . I attend Harris Stowe state university my tuition is high and I really don’t want to be in more debt. If anyone could donate anything at any time I’d be extremely grateful of the offering. I didn’t realize college would be so self based for as I have made a lot of sacrifices such as my health, sleep, time have all been sacrificed to a commitment I’ve made with my school.
I do plan on attending at Harris Stowe state university and continuing my pursuit of my criminal justice degree, but I’d want to be well prepared to my best so I can gel into my second year of college smoothly. I’ve talk to a lot of professors at my school about scholarships and they all say the same thing “you might get it depending on who applies”. I just don’t want to gamble on the chances of me not getting one and being helping in the middle of a semester.
We all know college is expensive and my school just went up on tuition rates with me technically being a out of state student I pay $7,000 in classes this doesn’t include food, clothes, hygiene. I’ve been grinding so hard this year I don’t why I just keep this drive that I’m all I got and no one will pick me up if I fall. I just need a back bone if things get to hard I won’t be overwhelmed by the circumstances like I was at the middle of my first semester. That is why I would be glad if you’d help me accomplish something.
