Hello! I am a college student in my last year of schooling, and looking for a way to fund the rest of my school year and/or possibly get ahead of my student loans. I am studying Psychology and the Theatre Arts, and have found myself struggling to pay tuition this year. After losing a lot of in-person time to COVID, I want to be able to make the most of my senior year and experience as much as I can by participating in the shows, engaging in my classes, and taking advantage of the college’s social events. However, it is difficult for me to do this while worrying about finances and working as much as possible in what little spare time I have. I also do not want to burden my parents back home who have two other children, one with special needs. At my university, every senior must complete an individualized project, best described as a “mini-thesis.” I work with an organization that provides performing arts opportunities for teens and young adults with disabilities. This past summer, I spent my time interviewing actors from similar organizations from across the country. I then compiled these interviews into a documentary-style video montage that showcased the impact of the performing arts within the disability community, demonstrated through actors’ own words and experiences. Because of the time and dedication I put into this project, I had limited time to work over the summer, when I would usually save up for tuition, fees, and bills. The photo included is from when I was working on the project, with faces covered for privacy. I am incredibly proud and grateful that I was able to complete this project and make meaningful connections, but I now feel less financially stable than I have in the past. I do not want to fall behind in my schooling because of financial issues, and I am eager to start my future off on the right foot, without missing any payments or bills this last year of university. I value kindness and generosity greatly, and plan to give back to my communities as much as possible when I have the means to do so, and help out those who may be in the same situation that I am in now. I am a responsible and hardworking individual, and I plan to make the most of my senior year while still saving up for my future. Any amount of monetary help would be amazingly beneficial.
