Hi, everyone! I am scheduled to graduate in June with a Masters in Education but am out of financial aid. To finish my program, I need to raise $2000 immediately. Please help me finish school!

Hi, everyone!

My name is Bre and I am studying for my Masters in Education. I am the only member of my immediate family to graduate college and am only the second member of my entire family to seek higher education. To me and my family, being able to attend college is a blessing and a privilege. My grandmother, who is 93, was forced to quit school in the 8th grade (to help care for the family) and my father never graduated high school; my mother attended some college but was never able to finish (due to raising me and my sister). When I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Art History in May 2013, my family was so proud of me. To them, I had accomplished the unthinkable. Then I started my study toward a Masters in Education and made family history; needless to say, my whole family has been behind me, supporting and encouraging me all the way.

I am currently scheduled to graduate in June with a Masters in Education but am out of financial aid. In order to finish my program, I need to raise $2000 immediately. If I don't, I will be forced to drop my studies. Currently, I have a 4.0 GPA and have made quite an impression on my professors--two have asked to use my work in future classes, while one has asked to use my work in a K-12 school district.

I have too much riding on my education, not to mention my family's dreams, to see my higher education ruined because of insufficient financial aid. I am asking anyone who can help make my educational goals a reality to please donate to my cause. Without your help, I cannot succeed and I will definitely not be able to finish school.

After earning my Masters degree, I plan on teaching English to low income students (K-12) and to non-native English speakers (children and adults, alike), and will hopefully be continuing my higher education by pursuing a PhD program for TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

Please help me raise the needed $2,000 so that I can finish school and help those less fortunate.

Thank you!

~Bre
