I have openly talked about my teenage depression. Surviving the struggles of depression has encouraged me to go to school to help troubled teens/children. I am really into art; drawing and painting. My goal is to be an Art Therapist. I struggled many years not caring about myself or what would happen in the future. I attempted suicide at age 17. With the depression I didn't care if I died. After the unsucceful attempt I tried drugs hoping to end my life. I eventually got better and then I had my daughter. After she was born I knew I wanted to better my life for her and myself. I want to help kids/teens with their depression. I've been through all that and wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.

I have been taking a few classes each semester for the past 2 years. I want to continue with school and classes but currently not able to recieve a grant for this year. I'll be able to reapply this March and attend next fall with the financial aid. I would love to attend school this winter and need help temporarily with classes, books and art supplies. 

I greatly appreciate any help.
