Hello, I’m a single mother and barely making it by paycheck to paycheck. My son is excited about starting college this fall. He is so passionate about his major in Zoology. He has been watching animal related shows on TV and YouTube since he was just a little child. My mother and I have taken him to the zoo multiple times every year. It has gotten to the point where he gives us a complete background of the animals we see. He’s like our personal tour guide at the zoo. He loves Steve Irwin and Vianney Kabwine. His dream is to be able to study abroad one day and study animals in the wildlife.
Growing up he had a cat, bearded dragon, leopard gecko, turtle and a parrot. All of which he took very good care of.
He managed to keep his grades up and on the honors roll every semester in High School. He even scored very high on his SAT and ACT classes.
My only issue is that I’m short $3000 in paying for his tuition. I’m trying my best to figure out a way to make his dream come true. At the moment to be honest he doesn’t even know I’m struggling.
I know every parent says this but I know he deserves so much. He doesn’t hang out in the streets and has never gotten into a fight. He helps me out around the house without hesitation and also helps his grandparents when they need anything. He’s a good child, grandchild and friend. His friends parents always tell me how they love having him over at their houses. He’s respectful to his elders and tries his best to help anyone in need.
A little about myself, I myself love animals as well. Maybe that’s where I got his love of them. On top of the animals he has/had, I also had snakes and dogs. I started college when he was an infant and was in my last semester until I had to leave due to abuse from his father. I’ve been working at my current place of employment for 15 years now and love where I work. My co-workers call me the mother of the office and seek advice from me whenever possible. I’m the type of employee that will take on a project with no hesitation.
Please find it in your heart to help out with what you can. It will mean the world not only to me but to him as well.
