Hello, my name is Asia and I am a first-generation college student. Right now, I am in need of money to finish my last year of school. Registration for classes for next semester are here and I am unable to register because I have a balance from my previous term. I had used all of the financial aid I could get but am still short $11,427. I have tried to get a personal loan, but most banks do not allow students to take out a loan for prior school terms. Even if I did find a bank willing to allow me to take out a loan for a previous term still the banks would still want undergrad students to have a co-signer. My family members come from lower-class communities and do not have good enough credit scores to be able to cosign a loan for me. If I could receive help here, I vow to give back just like the great people who gave to me in my time of need when I can be as financially stable on my own two feet.
I am studying communications with a concentration in television and film. I am actively seeking for internships that could help me to get my foot in the door, I recently started a new job, but it is impossible to pay the full balance by the time that classes start. Not to mention the other obligations that I already have that keeps me from saving up as much money as I would like. I am desperate and have been searching every day for a way to go back to school to complete my degree. I hope that by obtaining this degree, no one in my family will ever be faced with issues like this ever again. I want the next generation of my family to have the opportunities that I never did but I need help getting there. I am a pretty good student, I can struggle when I have to think about my financial hardships on top of everything else, but all in all I have managed to become a 3.0 student and that took a lot out of me. I am involved in many on campus organizations, one catered to gaining more experience in my field by getting to be hands on and telling real-life stories about my surrounding community. Another, a community service-based organization dedicated to helping other in order to become a better person, celebrating women, and sisterhood.
With just a little help I can become a better me and help change the world, anything that you can give will help. Words of encouragement are helpful too. Thank you!
