Hi my name is Andrew Hu, and I need to raise money in order for me to continue my education at the University of San Francisco. I'm currently a Sophomore at the City College of San Francisco, finishing my second year before transferring. USF is very expensive, and even with all the financial aid I would receive, I'd still be required to loan a heavy amount. I am the first in my family to be accepted into a University, as well as (possibly, if I can afford to finish) the first in line of four children to get a degree. Everything and anything helps, including simply spreading the word on this fundraiser!

As for a little background...

I wasn't always the good student I am today. When I was in high school, I dropped out in my 2nd year. During that year I constantly caused trouble, troubled others, and ran into problems with the law several times.

However, entering my (would be) Junior year I felt that I should repay my parents - who were always there for me despite my childish acts - by returning to school. Unfortunately my original high school wouldn't allow me to come back as my counselor and school dean stated that I was too much of a trouble maker, and wouldn't make it to college anyway. I then went to a secondary school where I attempted to obtain credits for both my Sophomore and Junior year at the same time. After a year of hard work, I managed to achieve my goal and was able to transfer back to my original high school for my Senior year, going on to graduate on stage.

After high school, I went straight to the City College of San Francisco, a school known for having a high retention rate. It was at this school where I learned of my love for the business world, and created my goal of becoming a business consultant, as well as a desire to obtain my degree at USF. However,I was told by peers and others that it was very unlikely for me to transfer out within 2 years. Even so, I didn't let this get me down and continued to work hard. The hard work paid off as I was accepted into USF for Fall 2013 (made it within the 2 year mark!) I felt that I could finally make my parents proud as I would be the first child (and person in our family) to go to a university, and be the first child to obtain a degree.

Unfortunately I've reached another obstacle in my upward climb towards my goals; the tuition and fees at USF are very expensive; even with all the financial aid that I'd be receiving, I'd still have to loan close to $10,000 for tuition, fees, and books alone.

This is where you all come in! Everything and anything helps greatly, even if it's just spreading the word on my fundraiser! Thank you regardless of whether or not you donated for at least hearing me out.
