Hi my name is Angela. I would like to share with you my story and truth. First off, several years ago, I was a independent woman who had a career as a substance abuse therapist , perhaps helping hundreds of men/women coming out of the prison system to find life’s path. Because I believed it was a calling and a passion, this was a career that lasted for 14 years but I also thought it was going to be until I retired. Unfortunately, that was not the case. In 2009, I began to experience depression and burnout due to the onset of physical pain and symptoms of fibromyalgia, which was not diagnosed until several years later. Because I was not getting better, it resulted in leaving my career the end of 2009, after which came being in and out of the hospital for various sicknesses, illnesses, and depression.
Not having employment, an income or any real savings to sustain me for a little while for the future or this unforeseen event, I found myself in a terrifying situation. I lost everything and even became homeless.
In 2011, I filed for disability. I fought four long years before I was awarded disability. During that four years, not only was I yet dealing with existing health and depression, I developed a new health issue which was spinal degeneration. Through the pain, struggles, difficulties, tears and uncertainties, I was determined to get better. But due to the spinal degeneration there were days that I could not walk ,get out of bed or perform everyday simple tasks. It was becoming really challenging to take care of myself. Because of that, I had major back surgery in July 2021. As I’ve been recovering, I have discovered that I have a passion for interior design. I have done some research and obtained information for an on-line course that will give me the tools to be the best I can be in interior design. I am humbly asking for $5,000 which would cover tuition and a laptop. The course would be virtual and personalized for 5 weeks which I would obtain a certificate in interior design with resources for employment as well as materials and modules.
Now that I have shared my story, truth and request I believe that like so many others I deserve another opportunity to do something positive, to live out my dream and vision to pursue something that I’m so passionate about after going through and having experienced hardships, setbacks, struggles and traumatic events and yet have HOPE. It would mean so much to me for this opportunity and monetary support to pursue this passion in interior design. My short -term goal is to obtain everything there is to know about interior design and the basic knowledge needed to be able to build my clientele. My long-term goal will be spent on learning the business side on how to start my own. Again it would be such a great blessing for me to receive the financial support but also the support from financial donors who see my heart , vision and dream will be so GREATLY appreciated Thank you so much God Bless.
