Hi, I am 19 years old and about to start my sophomore year in college. When I was in high school I knew exactly what I wanted, freedom. When I accepted into University 4 a state away and on a partial scholarship, I jumped onto the opportunity. Now freedom was not the only reason I went to school, I plan on pursuing a career in child protective services as a social worker. I feel quite passionate about helping the helpless. Luckily My financial aid was able to cover the rest of the costs of my tuition. The only costs that were left onto me were the housing fees which were manageable but only with a part time job.
Unfortunately during the last semester I was diagnosed with depression. This affected every aspect of my life. I lost 30 lbs in about 2 and a half months, and was unable to leave my room or even my bed unless I had work or class. Sometimes I wasn’t even able to do that. This was a factor that caused me to not do so well in school. This eventually led to a downward spiral of me not prioritizing my mental health and ultimately failing in every aspect of my life. Due to my incredibly low grades that resulted from the semester, I have had both my financial aid and partial scholarship revoked.
Now that I am not in school I have reached out to and been put on medication along with being paired with my amazing therapist. I have also reached out to my university who, while sympathetic, can not return my scholarship until I have a semester to prove an upward change. The same goes with my financial aid. I have also been working two jobs for the majority of the summer in effort to raise the money independently.
I have tried so many things to make ends meet. I am confident that I will stay on the track I am on with the new support system I have. I just need this one chance to start over. This is kind of my last option, I’m sorry to bother and ask for this much money. I have been able to get about half of tuition money raised. I need about $20,000 of my $45,000 tuition. Thank you so much for hearing me out. Truly any amount would be greatly appreciated.
