Hi! My name is Abby and I’m a 20 year old college student. I attend a small college where I am a soccer player and am taking 18 hours of classes in a semester. I am currently pursuing a degree in psychophysiology with a minor in Spanish with hopes of one day becoming an Occupational Therapist. With this degree, I want to be able to help children improve their daily function and I’m hoping that my minor will allow me to be able to help a wide variety of families. I want to be able to actually communicate with families and children instead of having to ask them to try to communicate with me. I don’t want to make anyone feel as though they have to be something they are not and I don’t want them to feel uncomfortable or out of place when communicating with me. Everyone deserves to be heard and to receive adequate care. Children deserve to be able to have normal function or at least they deserve their lives to be a little bit easier by being able to do simple tasks.
I really need help paying off my tuition, so I can continue to pursue this rewarding career. I am also hoping to attend a study abroad program in Spain with my college. This experience would allow my to experience a completely different culture which, in turn, would allow me to reach out to people and help them. I hate being a burden to others and asking for help is really hard, but I’m having to swallow my pride and ask for help. As long as I keep pursuing this goal, so many people would benefit from a stranger’s generosity. I really don’t need a whole lot of assistance, just enough to get me going and to make a payment towards my tuition. My current tuition bill is about $3000, and honestly I don’t need help with all of it. I am working towards paying it off, but some assistance would be very beneficial. My parents have offered to pay for it, but they have already done so much for me and I just want to show them that I can contribute to my own education.
I really appreciate any help that anyone can give me. I am truly grateful for a kind community that wants to help someone they’ve never met. And with that help, they would be helping a future generation.
