Hello. First off, I would like to give you a little background information about me. I graduated high school from a very small school; 43 classmates to be exact. Shortly after graduation, I started a 2-year program at a technical college to obtain a degree in IT Computer Networking. I was ecstatic about going to college and learning more about the IT world. I was awarded a $500 scholarship from that technical school and was super excited I was chosen. About after a year in college, my father passed away from head & neck cancer and I was completely devastated. My father was never a smoker nor a drink so this made it even more incredibly hard on myself & family to deal with. I started falling behind in my classwork because I felt a sense of numb not having my father to lean on for guidance and support. Because of falling behind in class, I ended up failing a few classes that I needed to retake the following years. A 2 year degree turned into taking almost 5 years to complete. But I did it, I graduated with my AAS degree and I did it because I know my Dad wanted me to get it. During the last few months before I graduated, I got an internship at a local company and wasn’t making much money at all. Shortly after graduation, they wanted me to start paying back my borrowed money; now $30k in school loans. I had deferred making payments for around 3 years because I couldn’t afford to make the high monthly payments they were expecting me to. Fast forward to 2018, I was the passenger involved in a serious ATV accident which resulted in a broken right arm & dislocated shoulder. I was out of work for 2-3 months while I recovered and tried to heal quickly. Now all of my medical bills are piling up on me and I’m having to miss some payments because it’s hard to afford life as this point. In closing, I’ve had to deal with a difficult life and a lot of unexpected roadblocks that financially got in the way. If you’re able to donate anything to assist in my school loans & medical bills, I very much appreciate & thank you in advanced!
