In my family, I’m the first one to ever have the opportunity to attend college. This was possible because I had help from my father who financially supported me. After 3 semesters, he experienced a financial crisis which made it impossible to support me on my educational journey.
I remember everything like it only happened a few days ago, from nervously awaiting my approval or denial through the application process to the heart racing moment when I stepped into my first class saying ‘I finally made it’.
Sadly, with the recent situation I’m not sure if I’ll have financial support to complete my journey to education. I’m hoping that soon I’ll be able to get the help I need.
Growing up I was always fascinated by technology thus I was excited to learn as much as possible and utilize my knowledge to help the elderly who weren’t technologically advanced. For example, an older man needed help with his desktop when he couldn’t afford the prices people were charging for repairs. So I decided to help him free of charge even though he offered to give me a tip. Since then I’ve helped other people and also younger kids growing up with the passion I have for computers.
With that everlasting love in my heart and mind I decided to pursue Computer Science as my major. In doing something I love this much plus with the drive from my motivation I was able to maintain a high GPA even when I heard that I wouldn’t be able to continue studying due to financial reasons. When I realized that I was maintaining my GPA throughout my struggles I had a feeling of pride even though I was sad knowing it had to come to an end. With some help I would like to go again even stronger, then push myself to complete my goal of going to graduate school which will further prepare me for my career.
That’s why I’m reaching out to everyone here with a heart filled with complete hope that you may help me achieve my goals of finishing college. Help me please to fulfill my dreams of studying.
I’m extremely excited now because I know with your help and with the money I’ve been continuously saving I can make this a reality. I cannot wait to see the person I become in the future after I achieve my goals. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
