I’m going to have a hard time asking this, but I’m running out of options. This issue feels like it’s impossible to fix, but I want to try everything I can to get the money I need, so here I am. I’m nineteen years old, I’ve recently finished up my first semester in college, and I need $11,000 to pay off my student account or else I won’t be able to return for the spring. I need this money by February 5th. It’s a lot of money and not a lot of time, but I’m hoping a miracle might get me to my goal.
When I got out of high school, I really had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, and as a result I took a gap year. My mother was furious and our relationship became strained, and she kept me home all day to ensure that when fall came around again, I’d go off to college instead of staying home. Unfortunately, that meant I couldn’t get a job, which would have allowed me to establish my credit. Both of my parents were not wise with their money in life, and as a result both of them have poor credit scores, which makes this issue that much more difficult. Coming to college was a dream come true in a lot of ways. I’ve met good people, established friendships, learned and grew as a person and as a student, and I’ve found myself constantly itching to return to campus to be in a place I love with people I love.
That’s all hanging in the balance right now.
At college, I feel like I finally have a sense of purpose, and I don’t know what I’d do if that got taken from me. I don’t know if I can handle going back home and not coming back because of money issues. Having to leave would absolutely break my heart and wound my soul. Please, I’m begging anyone who sees this to help me. It’s alright if you can’t give more than five dollars even, I’ll take whatever anyone can offer right now. I believe that good deeds multiply, and if you invest a little bit of your money in me I swear that one day when I’m in a better financial state I’ll pass that good deed on to someone else who needs it. Thank you in advance to those of you who help, you have no idea what your aid means to me.
