To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Jada Williams and I am 22 years old. I currently attend San Francisco State University as an F-1 international student. I am on a F visa because I was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and moved to the states when I was 5. I do not qualify for student loans or financial aid because of my citizenship status here in the U.S. As a international student I have to pay out-of-state tuition which cost me over $9,000 a semester. My yearly cost come close to $30,000 with books and housing added on top. My parents are both on visas as well, my dad having a work visa, is the only able to work legally in the states. I have 3 younger siblings so whatever income he brings in has to provide for us a a family of 6. As you can imagine we have to live paycheck to paycheck. I have been lucky enough to have grandparents who fulfilled my dream of being the first in my family to attend a 4-year university. They have helped me pay for everything, just recently they have retired because of old age and have used up all of their available US funds to help me out because the Canadian dollar is very bad right now. I want to continue my dream of graduating from a 4 year but that has to come a stop right now. I am not able to work legally and can only gain money from families that are willing to let me watch their kids or their pets. I have never used a website like this but I am running out of options. MY semester is fast approaching and I have no help financially to continue reaching my goals and pursue a career in Physical Therapy. I hate asking for help and have tried my best to make the most of my situation because my life has always been in California and I would really like to continue living here. If you chose to donate, I can ensure you that it goes to a great cause. That it goes to a hard-working young woman who wants to achieve her dreams and make her family proud. That it goes to a young woman who hopes to obtain a green-card and live here permanently. That it will go towards all the days where I have to make sacrifices to get where I want to be in life. If you donate I can ensure that your money will not be a waste and that I will use whatever I can get to stay driven on my path to success. Please take a chance to read this and invest in my dreams just like you have invested in your own dreams and your children’s dreams, or your family member’s dreams and your friend’s dreams. I know that I pride myself on supporting people who are motivated in life and use their time to make something of themselves. I am asking you to support me while I make something of myself. All I need is a little push from you to get that much closer to my dreams. If you have reached the end of this, thank you so much for your time and any sort of donation is very much appreciated. I hope that you see me in the news as an inspiring physical therapist. Have a wonderful day! I have attached a photo of my bills this month.
