I am trying to raise money for my husband and me to be able to continue our college education. All the money will go towards our tuition for this upcoming semester!
My husband and I both attend the university right now. We are first-generation college students. We come from families that were not given the opportunity to attend college. Because they were not granted this opportunity, life was a bit harder for them. We decided that we wanted to make the life of our children better, and we quit our jobs, left our country to attend a cheaper college.
We always knew it was going to be hard to finish college, but we did not want the fear to stop us from going after what we want. We got jobs on campus, but that is not sufficient to cover our monthly expenses as well as our tuition. Our tuition is $4, 218 in total and for us, that is a lot.
We are trying our best to make this work but we have become very desperate. We would not be asking if we didn't realize that things were getting harder.
I have tried applying for scholarships but have done so unsuccessfully. I maintain a 4.0 GPA in college and I will continue to work hard because I am working for my children. We have to break the cycle of poverty that plagues our country.
I will be grateful for whatever donation is made. Everything will count for something. Thank you in advance. I know that someday; after successfully completing college, I will be in your seat, and I will be able to help someone who will be in my position.
Can’t donate? Please share. Even a quick share on Facebook can help.
The average share raises $97.
