Help Kat Go Back

From Katherine Reisen

I've been accepted in BMMC in NYC! Unfortunately the financial aspect of going back to college is posing much difficulty. I will be studying criminal justice which will bring me one step closer to getting my law degree.

Originally I had planned to get my Masters this fall but due to personal issues during one of my semesters my GPA dropped significantly and doesn't meet the requirements to do that. So this is my plan B. It isn't ideal but it's what I need to do in order to make my dreams a reality. During my previous college years (that one semester aside) I did extremely well. I was Dean's List and Dean's List Honorable Mention almost every semester. I received many merit-based scholarships. As well as being accepted into 2 honor societies. Currently I'm working for a summer camp program with preschool children and I'm saving whatever I can to pay my way through this degree. But I need your help too! Anyone who knows me will tell you I love helping people however I can and that's what this will allow me to do. I want to make a difference in this world. Especially when it comes to our criminal justice system, specifically cases of rape and sexual assault. This is something that has impacted my life on a personal level and justice was not carried out. I want to make lasting changes to help sexual assault and rape survivors get justice for themselves. I want to make sure that they are heard and that their stories do not go unnoticed. I want to make sure that no one is afraid to report their assault in fear that no one will believe them, That's what going back to school to get this degree is for. It's bringing me one step closer to being able to make these changes.
