Hey folks,

My name is Andres Rivera and its my birthday on tuesday, August 27th. My ONLY WISH is to be able to get your support to take more step on my path towards higher learning. In August of 2012 i lost my full time job and had to overcrowd my sister's house in Compton. Since then i have managed to hold down various temporary jobs until recently when i was offered a part time position as a Communications Assistant with Community Health Councils, a community-based health education and policy organization. Established in 1992, its mission is to promote social justice and achieve equity in community and environmental resources for underserved populations. I literally started a week ago (8/12/2013) and can not afford to pay for tuition fees to go back to school this fall at Art Center at Night. I want to pursue a Bachelors of Fine Arts focusing on Graphic Design, and in the near future open a Design firm as i have a passion for visual communications. After the 2013 spring semester, i have extended my skilIs as a designer to nonprofit organizations and helped with establishing branding identity and other services free of charge. I have also connected to CultureStrike a nonprofit organization who harness a creative network of Designers to use Art as a tool to amplify dialogue and inspire social change.Thanks to the generous support of mentors, peers and professional relationships I was able to fundraise and cover tuition fees and school supplies for the 2013 spring semester that starts September 9th. I hope to achieve the same for the 2013 fall semester. Your contribution will not only fulfill my birthday wish but will be better equipped me, personally and professionally, to continue to offer my skills as a designer to my community. I thank you sincerely for your time and generous contribution. Please check out my portfolio on my website: www.streetincmedia.com
