Who is Wendy?

Hi, I'm Wendy. I'm a typical 20-something trying to keep my life & finances in order. I spent many years in university without accumulating debt. Then, when I was no longer satisfied with my life, I decided to go back and complete a professional degree - Bachelor of Social Work. So I took out a student loan and a student line of credit.

What has brought her to ask for your coffee change?

My dream of being a Social Worker has been put on hold (possibly indefinitely). I have complex mental illnesses that dampered my ability to perform academically. While trying to convince the university to work with me, I checked myself in to the local short stay mental health centre. Then my longterm boyfriend ended the relationship while I was there. So I was now homeless, jobless, moneyless and still not mentally stable. Next was a car accident (passenger), resulting in injuries. Then the sexual assault happened - just my luck! And most recently, another car accident (passenger).

Essentially, I have had the year from hell. I'm still homeless and jobless. The money stiuation is not much better. I receive a small amount of money from the government but its not enough to pay the bills.

What Will Wendy Do With This Money?

Well, it has been about a year since my life blew up. I'm ready to get back to being myself! I spent 2 months of intense therapy, and now I see a highly rated MSW counsellor on a weekly/biweekly basis. My mental health issues are much better managed with the therapy and a new regimen of antidepressants, antianxiety, mood stabilizing, and PTSD medications.

For this money, I have planned approximately $1000 for payments on all loans and sources of credit used for university. The second allottment of $1000 will go towards paying for a moving company to gather my belongings from around the city into my (soon to be) new apartment. Then purchase a bed and whatever kitchenwares that were not packed with my stuff. Lastly, I'm hoping to get a job soon, so after I go through my work wardrobe, I hope to pick up a blouse or pants or something. I know I've gained weight from the new medicine regimen & the inability to exercise due to the car accidents.

Usually, these situations and problems are aided by parents or other family members. Unfortunately, my parents are not in the position to help me in these tangible ways.

By sending me the equivalent of your morning coffee order, we can reach the goal quickly! I need your help and am very grateful for whatever comes my way!!  :)
