My name is Olivia and I am 23 years old just starting college to hopefully begin a career for myself and escape my abusive situation with my father. I grew up being tossed from my mother to my father and between grandparents. I suffered physical and emotional abuse as well as neglect from both of my parents and this has left me to raise myself out of the ashes and be my own advocate. I am desperately trying to remove myself from this vicious cycle. I struggle with Major Depressive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and ADHD and am trying to heal from trauma all while planning my future.
Money is currently my only obstacle from being free from the life I have lived so far. I have never known peace because I was born into a family who has done nothing but hurt me and it seems escape is impossible without outside aid. I am terrified of my father and have often wondered if he will kill me before I can escape him. My only way out is to find my own footing in this world via a career that can sustain me long-term. In order to do this, I need to be able to afford a degree. I do not want to be stuck like this any longer. I want to hold my life in my own hands for the first time and I would be grateful to anyone who could help me do so, even if it is only a few dollars towards my cause.
I have taken the first positive step towards my goals and registered for classes at my local community college. I will be studying Computer Science and am very excited for the first time in a very long time. I do have a job that I work my best at and as often as possible, but I cannot support myself as well as pay for school, especially by the deadline given (July 24th). I have about 2 months to come up with $3,548 for the fall 2019 semester (not including spring semester which I will also be paying this amount.) There is currently no way for me to save enough to meet this deadline and I would greatly appreciate any and all help.
My dream is to graduate school and be able to get a solid career so I can be self sustaining and leave this abusive home which I did not choose. Thank you so much to those who have read and considered my plea! Any amount will ultimately help me reach my goal! Love and blessings to you all.
