My name is Patricia and I am 24 years old. I was placed into the foster care system when I was 5 years old and aged out at 21 years of age. Though most of my life I was moved from home to home and school to school I still managed to go down the right path. I graduated high school early and even enrolled at a junior college. I was on the path toward adoption but was quickly asked to move out after my attempted suicide. I’ve been on my own for the last three years and though I feel blessed to be where I am, I am drowning in debt because I was never properly shown the reality of credit cards. I’m trying my best but with the pandemic hitting it feels like I can’t seem to catch a break. I took a leap of faith and quit my full time job to give my all into my externship for medical school. I was able to get by with credit cards & of what little savings I had. However, now that I’ve been hired on after graduation it just seems like I can’t catch up with everything. On top of my credit card loans, I also had to get another loan to get my car out of repossession. I only did this because it’s my only way to get to and from work. When I’m not working, I do DoorDash, but again that costs money. Christmas is coming up and in a way I’m blessed since I do not have a family to gift to. I spend what other time I have left studying for my classes. After graduating from medical assisting school, I enrolled into a junior college in hopes of qualifying for financial aid but due to not meeting the deadlines, I won’t be seeing anything until the Spring semester. I have people messaging me every week asking for the money that I borrowed from them which ranges from $25-100. I did what I could to get by but now that I have this $12hr job as a medical assistant I can’t seem to pay much of anyone back. Between my credit card bills, the loan for my car being repossessed, my new car payment, car insurance, groceries, and rent, I just don’t know what to do. I do not have family to go to since I was in foster care. I’ve reached out to my siblings but they don’t respond. No one will give me a loan, so I guess that’s why I’m here. If I had this second chance with someone to help me, I’d feel eternally thankful.
