My name is Andrew Demetrius and I am currently studying Undergraduate Theology and Religious Studies at the Catholic University of America. (if you don’t believe me, check out my fb profile: http://www.facebook.com/drewdemetrius or contact me with any of my personal info on there) I am in my first semester at the University and I transferred from Broome Community College in Binghamton, New York. I am a Knight of Columbus 2nd Degree and I am a hardworking student and devoted Catholic.
When I was younger, I had many spiritual and familial difficulties that I was unwilling to face or work on in my life. When my parents realized that the only thing they could do to help me was to send me to a boarding school which they found in upstate New York, my Father traded in his retirement to pay for the tuition. My family barely made it through financially but the results were miraculous.
Upon being here at CUA my first semester, I fell in love with the school. I truly feel the true presence of Christ in this place.
As I mentioned before, in order to secure my high school education and my emotional and spiritual recovery, my parents exhausted all the funds that they had for me and most of the funds they had for themselves. They cannot help me financially and they cannot safely co-sign for any loans for me and so, I am left to pay for my own education. Student aid has proved to not be enough and the money that seemed to be available at the beginning of this semester has not actually been available to me and will not be. I now owe the University a balance for this semester (and will for future semesters of my education) which I cannot provide and if I don’t, then I will not be allowed to return to school next year. I am afraid that at this rate, I may not be able to make it through my undergraduate studies and that I may be in an insurmountable debt when I leave school, having a degree or not.
I need help paying for my education so that I may fulfill the Good Lord’s work he has planned for me. I just pray that you may find it within your heart to help me.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read this page and just know that I am writing this from the bottom of my heart. Please help me by sending anything you can (even $1 or 50c helps!) and if you have nothing like me, share my story…like my page…spread the word of my story and people like me.
Thank you for your time and anyone who gives so much as a penny, I will add to a list of names who I will pray for every day. (no joke)
