More Info

Hello everyone,

My name is Leontine. I am originally from Togo (West Africa). I am a current Nursing student at Mercy College of Health Sciences. I moved from Seattle Washington to Iowa this past August to pursue my dream of becoming a nurse. I love what nurses do and am passionate about helping people of all ages. I believe I have what it takes to be a nurse.

Earlier this year I was laid off from my job due to Covid-19 and was not able to save as much as I planned. My only option is to get private loans, which has been challenging.  Becoming a nurse is one way I believe I could bring comfort to those going through the darkest moments of their lives. I have worked so hard up to this point and dropping out is not an option. The position I am currently in may slow or stop this journey. I have tried working and doing school full time in the past but this resulted in poor grades. I am afraid of starting a full-time job again as it may intervene in my studies. I do not want to make this same mistake again, which is the reason why I wanted to reach out and see if I can get any financial support.  Any support or donation will contribute significantly to my tuition, rent, books, and other expenses. Thank you in advance for your contribution to my dream.
