Student Loans

From Kiela Ocheltree

Hello, I am asking for donations to help me pay off my student loan. I had to recently take one out so I was able to live on campus this Spring Quarter, and I have no real financial support to help.

More Info

For the past five years I have been living at different friends houses to some of my cousins. I was in a very crummy environment with my parents who were abusing drugs, alcohol, and each other. My sister and I never had money for food, electricity, heat, etc. so I took the initiative to move out to further my life. 

About 2 years ago my older brother, whom was 23, passed away due to an asthma attack. This event had lead to a lot of negative things in my life as well as positive. I had gained depression and things like that and was having a very hard time going to school and dealing with everything. I also was forced to rebuild a relationship with my parents after almost not talking them for four whole years. 

But on the other note, my brothers absence has and will always continue to motivate me to do what I need to. I was at a point where I wanted to give up, and his absence helped me fight through. 

For him I am thankful, because without him I do not think I would have graduated high school, or pushed myself to go to college.

I do no have the best financial support and I really am doing this all on my own. Anything will really help, and I am just thankful I have made it this far in my education and life. 

Thank you!
