Hello person! Thank you so much for taking your time to read and, hopefully donate.
My name is Abigail and I am 19 years old. I am a high school graduate trying to pay her first tuition payment at Blue Ridge Community College. I am taking prerequisite classes for nursing the first two years, and then transferring to JMU. I have always wanted to be a nurse in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) since I was around 15 years old. As of now, I have a part time job at a retirement home for almost 4 years. I absolutely love the residents there and hearing their life stories. When I am not working, I love to read, knit and cuddle with my cat.
This summer has been really hard for me. I was renting my brother’s car during my senior year of high school while he was teaching English out of the country. So we came up with an agreement that while he was away, I would pay for car insurance, car payments, any kind of repairments and of course gas. I had to get the car repaired, which cost up to $500, that took my bank account down. I have an insurance fee of $480/6 months and on top of that $70/month of car payments. I am already struggling to pay for that. And then I dislocated my left knee (4th time) and was on crutches for 3 weeks. I wasn’t able to work during that time and I wasn’t getting any money either.
So since I am starting college in a few weeks, I am in desperate need of money for tuition. I have three payments for this first semester, the first is due August 14th and is $900 plus enrollment fee of $40. The second and third one are $425 each, and due September 16 and October 16. In my family, we pay for our own college. I have no financial aide or any scholarships. I have $30 in my bank account and I don’t get my next pay check until after tuition is due.
My goal is $940 before August 14, I know not a lot of time. So anything really helps. Thank you soo much!
