Tuition and Housing Insecurity

Tuition and Housing Insecurity

From Luna Casillas

I'm a first generation student. My mom is a disabled single mother of two. We recently got evicted from our home and I'm raising money to be able to afford the dorms so I can continue working toward my degree.

More Info

My name is Luna. I was born to a single mother who worked 3 jobs tirelessly until she became disabled. Throughout my life she's been in and out of hospitals. When I was 10 she had my brother. Growing up was rough, but we made it. 

Getting into college was a dream. No one in my family had ever gone; things were looking up.

My mom, little brother, and I got evicted my last day of my first year of university. If I can't raise enough for the dorm I will be forced to quit pursuing higher education for now.

If all goes to plan I plan to attend law school and eventually go into public policy to help others- I just need some help getting there.

Thank you
