Help Me Pay For College!

Help Me Pay For College!

From Paul Buckett

I'm trying to raise money to help pay for my college education. I want to pursue a double major in Industrial Design and Advertising, which would allow me to focus my creativity towards a career.

I know college attendance isn't a high priority in general, especially relative to all of the other causes on here. However, it is something that would really make me life greater and I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn't try everything I could to afford it and make it happen. My parents will contribute all they can, but it's not nearly enough, as only one has a steady job and I have three other siblings that need to be taken care of. I am currently working as a package handler at an Amazon warehouse as well as a Papa John's delivery dude. I'm also applying for as many scholarships as possible and hopefully putting my writing skills to good use. I worked as a summer camp counselor this summer and it was easily the most fulfilling experience of my life, I finally felt like I was actually making a difference in the world. I am an avid 80s music fan, primarily Meat Loaf. I think Bat Out of Hell 2 is the greatest album of all time and I think Jim Steinman is the greatest songwriter of all time. I've wanted to become a footwear designer since I was in middle school. I have stacks of notebooks just filled with sketches of shoes and I still custom paint shoes as a hobby. Currently I'm leaning farther away from specifically footwear, but a major in Industrial design would allow me to figure out exactly what I want to create along the way. To make the most out of going to college, I would also want to double major in Advertising. This would give me a broader opportunity to use my creative skills in unique ways. I also think the two majors go hand in hand, creating products with the advertising in mind. If I could go to college next semester, that would be absolutely incredible. Thank you for taking the time to read all of this and considering helping me.
