About 10 years ago, I had an academic setback where I did poorly for my first attempt as an undergraduate. Although I did earn my degree but because of my low gpa and not many high grades, it has been hard for me to climb back up to pursue any graduate degree. By some luck, I was able to obtain a second degree with a higher gpa, but because of my low gpa of my first degree, it was hard for me to be accepted into any programs. I have applied to many programs, and throughout these 10 years, all I’ve received were rejections. I’ve learned that it is best for me to be patient and take it one day at a time. Where it was faster, easier for others, I had to be patient and take the slower, harder route.
Finally after so much strife and rejections, I have been accepted into a graduate program that will lead me to my ideal career that I have been working towards within the past decade. I know financial aid will help me with school tuition, so I am not worry about that part. What I am concerned about is commuting to school and housing with my cat.
I recently quit my job to concentrate more on pursuing a graduate degree, and I recently lost my car due to mechanical issues. Normally, I would not ask anybody for monetary donation due to my pride, and I also donate/help others when I can. I am asking for $7,000 to purchase a used car and to help with apartment costs for me and my cat.
I am most concerned about my cat, Terra. I do not want to give her away to anybody because she is my family, and I do not think anybody else will take care of her as well as I can because I know her quirks and her dislikes. She is a sweet kitty and does not deserve to be shuffled around foster homes or shelters. I will not give her up. Unfortunately, university housing does not allow pets, but I have placed my name on an apartment near the school that is okay with pets.
I would like to purchase a used car to commute from my apartment to the university, and the apartment is so that I would not have to part with my beloved kitty. I am appreciative of any monetary donations, and any that’s leftover, I will donate to the Church.
Thank you very much for your help and support. I am truly grateful and humble.
