Hello! I am Ariana and I am a hard worker. I have worked almost full time since middle school, and with the virus, I have lost my job. I cannot get another one until at least June. I am 18 years old and attending university next year. My parents are not in my life financially, so I am in charge of paying for my entire tuition. My tuition is 24,000 dollars per year. I will be receiving a wonderful education, but it is expensive. I have been saving up for years, and not being able to work, I will not have enough money to go to school in the next few months. I pay for my own car, insurance, food, and clothes. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given in life, but I know I am cut out for more. I cannot afford college without help at this point. I was so close to being able to afford it by myself.
I earn good grades at school and take good care of my pet rabbit, Winnie. My dream is to become a veterinarian and be able to spend time with and help animals. I hate having to ask for help. This virus has caused a lot of problems, but I have done my best to remain positive. During the quarantine, my mental health has declined, and I have not begun to think about the prices of treatment. My brother’s medication and food is more important. I am glad that I have gotten to spend more time with him, but I am nervous that I am not as financially stable as I used to be. With expenses still coming in and no income, I am losing money at an alarming rate. I know that with the help of someone like you, I will study harder than I’ve ever studied at university and work harder than I’ve ever worked.
If anyone out there is kind enough to lend a helping hand, I promise you, it will mean the world to me. Even a small amount gets me so much closer to my dream. I always treat others with kindness just as others have done to me. I will always remember the people that help me and never lose sight of what’s important when I am a veterinarian. Thank you. If you cannot help, I understand and I wish you all the best.
Thank you. paypal.me/arianaaldape1
