My name is Kimberly Santiago, and I am a current sophomore English major college student. I have created a request on this website to ask kind strangers to help me pay for college. I have a few federal loans and grants that help me pay for college right now, but even with those I will have to pay an estimated $20,000 out of pocket in order to keep attending the school I currently am attending.
I was fired from my first job last November because I had to cancel too many shifts due to the fact that I needed to give myself time to study and do well in my 7 different classes. This year, I have taken it upon myself to find online jobs instead, since more and more online jobs are becoming readily available for college students and those who need to make money but don’t necessarily have the time to get and maintain an in-person job.
Both of my parents used to help me pay my college tuition and other fees every month, but once they got too high, one of my parents backed out completely. Right now, one of my parents and I are solely responsible for paying my college tuition every month (we opted for an installment plan instead of the full almost $6,000 per semester), so I would like to ask for help.
Almost every day, I feel like a major burden to my one parent who works a 9-5 job, Uber, and other small jobs to help me pay for college along with their own personal bills, some of which include gas, house payments, electricity, car payments, groceries, home insurance, auto insurance, cable, phone bill, and many others I probably don’t know that they pay. I would like to pay this parent back for all the times they’ve passionately helped me pay for my college education.
Please help me pay for my college education. If you would like to know more about exactly where your money would be going, you can send questions to my personal email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I truly hope that I have inspired at least one person to help fund my college education. If not, then I still hope you have a wonderful day being inspired by others!!
