I have worked all my life as many hours as needed and as many days as possible to provide opportunities for my family. Yet, in the process fell prisoner of debt to pay for tuition, sports activities, even to represent our country in international competitions.
It is very difficult to make the decision to request the help and support of others since we’ve been taught it is detrimental to our image, it is a shame to recognize we need help beyond the four walls of our house, but there comes a time where to be able to breathe there is nothing more I can do. I need your help and support.
Mother of four, I have always worked 12+ hours a day to try to meet my families needs. School is extremely important since I see education as the gift I can provide to make their lives better. It has been number one priority way before fancy food, restaurants, clothing, housing, or cars. I have almost made it, if it wasn’t for the loans and credit card debt I have had to endure to be able to afford the costs of living and a good education.
Many sacrifices have been part of my situation. The toughest my own education. Many years have gone by and I have had to put my own school on hold to pay for theirs. At this point less than 10 days from having to pay tuition to enroll the next quarter courses, I am not sure how I will be able to stay in college or if I will start all. I am not sure if I am going to have to keep it on hold again. I am behind with school payments and it tortures me. I am working 12 +hours…and cannot make ends meet. Credit cards are due the 20th, and I just haven’t figured out what to do.
I work, and a lot. I just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I live day by day, hoping for a bright future, knowing I can and I will, someday , somehow. But at this moment in time, what I am making is not enough to keep me afloat.
Banks are not an option because of the amount of debt. I have managed to make lasts months payment, but past the 14th of may, money coming in is not enough to make the card payments, but specially tuition (school and college).
