Hello everyone! My name is Liliana Urrutia and I am starting my third semester at Phoenix College. I am going full time to school and I have managed to juggle school with a part-time job at Torres Marquez Communications while keeping a 4.0 GPA. My educational plan is to graduate from Phoenix College and transfer to Northern Arizona University to obtain my bachelor's degree in Dental. I was born in Guanajuato, Mexico but I have lived here in the United States since I was 10 months old. For this reason, I have been struggling due to laws that are placed in this state. I recently got rejected from the Honor's Progam at my school because I did not fit the legal qualifications, although I fit the school standards. I am writing to anyone who is willing to help me out with my tuition this semester. Any little contribution would be great because in the end of the day, I just want to continue to do what I love, which is learning. I always say that I may not be naturally smart, but I am a hard worker. With my dedication, I have overcome obstacles that tie in with my legal status. I have managed to go back to school this year since I last graduated in 2011. I want to keep fighting. I want to make my family proud of their first child who is in college, but most of all be proud that I can acheive the dreams I have set for myself. Although one of my dreams was to graduate with honors, I still have high hopes that one day I will be able to join the program. As of right now, my account is on hold due to not paying for the spring semester for 2014. The only way it can be opened is if I pay my tuition before January 10. I have managed to pay for my first year of school, but it has become difficult to pay for the spring semester. Currently I have applied for scholarships and I am looking for other ways to help pay for school. With your contribution, it will help me take another stepping stone to the right path of my future.
