I am a student who dreams of a really good education so that I can earn a
degree that will allow me to serve and help others with it, but doesn’t see
a way of affording such a dream.
I went to a local community college since it was cheaper and now have my AA
degree. Now all I want is for a chance to further my education, but I am
afraid it will cost way more money than I have or am able to earn.
I had to take off this fall semester to help earn some money, but this will
do little help. I can’t spare much of my money because of this so I can’t
afford a car and I have to live with my parents and burden them with my
needs. Time is short for me to gain more money so that I can pay for
college this spring semester.
I am the first of my dad’s side of the family to have ever attended college
and one of the few to have a high school diploma. I want to make my family
proud by going farther than they did in education.
My parents are much older than normally parents are for a young adult such
as me, so they need to save as much as they can for a soon coming
retirement. With their advanced age also comes health problems. My mom has
type two diabetes and my dad has severe joint problems and arthritis. These
joint issues have forced him to undergo within the last two years a pricy
hip replacement surgery and a knee surgery just so he can walk without being
in severe pain and so he can continue working. The knee surgery will only
temporarily help his knee, and so soon he will need his entire knee replaced
as well. With these medical expenses and retirement for both of them in
about 5 to 10 years, there’s little money left for them to send a daughter
off to a university.
I am very ambitious in wanting to someday earn a graduate degree when it is
possible, but right now I have to be focused on somehow finding a way to pay
for a Bachelors degree.
I refuse to give up my dream of going to a good university just yet, and
have came here to beg anyone that reads this to please donate money to me so
I can go to college. I was lucky enough to get into this university so
please help me so that my dream of going there won’t be shattered. I want to
earn my degree that will allow me to work in the social service field so
that I can help others someday.
I come begging now because I know I will have to beg later on down the road
for even more money if I don’t get help now to prevent me from taking out
big student loans with their interest rates. I welcome any amount you wish
to donate. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your
