To whom it may concern,
I am not going to pretend I am in a dire financial situation. I am not. I have a job, going to school part time, and have a little bit of familial support.
But I have a pitch: debt is a bitch. I currently have a substantial amount of student loan debt. All I am asking is for a little bit of help tackling it.
Here’s a bit about me: both the light and the dark. I am a business finance major, I work as a vocal teacher for kids, I love exercising daily and eating healthfully. I am in a committed relationship and I enjoy hanging out with friends and connecting with my family over the phone.
My life hasn’t always been so great though. I grew up in a loving family and a supportive environment. My health has been my biggest challenge. And boy what a challenge it was.
Short version? I was sick with pneumonia for five years. Undiagnosed. It wreaked havoc on my immune system, and I essentially missed out on all of high school. I had to undergo incredibly painful treatment for a year before starting college.
After starting college the mental health ramifications of my illness hit. I was depressed, suicidal, anxious…it was dark (again, this is the short version).
I am doing better now with help. I’m excited for the future. I never thought I’d be as successful as I am today (healthy, happy, 3.8 GPA, working a job I enjoy). I have big ambitions and no doubts that I will be able to achieve them.
So I just ask for a bit of support on the way to my dreams. Even a small gift can go a long way. I would love to be able to graduate debt free so I am free to pursue exactly what I want; what’s the point of living anyway?
I hope this message appeals to you and your generous heart:) Thank you for reading.
