Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to review my campaign. I am a mid twenty something struggling to finish my degree so I can get the skills I need to pursue my career goals. What is holding me back is funding!

I cannot finish my degree without paying an outstanding bill which was not covered by financial aid. I am not asking for the full term amount, because I will use personal funds for most of it, but I do need help in order to cover a large portion and continue my studies!


I figure if 700 people each donate $2 then it will make a huge difference for me. Other possible combinations: 280 people donate $5 each, 175 donate $8, or 2 people donate $700. You get the idea. Either way, I'm grateful for every cent.

This is an annual event trying to find funding to continue studying. I reckon that if I had the available funding when I needed it, I'd have been done a LONG TIME AGO.

I am a geography and geographic information systems major. You are probably thinking WHAT?!?!! I did the research and my major, known as GIS, has EXCELLENT job outlook. It is a valuable tech skill used by law enforcement, technology companies, and environmental firms to understand area and population. Also, Michael Jordan was a geography major at UNC- Chapel Hill and he's not doing so bad. :) Related degrees are software programming, international relations, and economics.

I've made many sacrifices to fund my education as I'm sure you have too. It terrifies me to take out one massive loan so I am trying to avoid that, but it may be inevitable. :/ If you have any suggestions or questions, please drop me a line. 


Thank you for your support. x
