Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exam Fundraiser
Organized by: Ernestina CPA Candadidate
I am seeking funding to pay for the Wiley PLATINUM CPA review course. The Certified Public Accountant credential is crucial for advancement in an accounting career. Obtaining the Certified Public Accountant designation will greatly expand my opportunities, as well as, validate me as an Accounting Professional.
I have a strong determination to succeed. However, I require financial assistance to obtain the materials that will prepare me to sit for the Certified Public Accountant Examination.
I come from a poor family. We lived in a public housing development. My mother only completed the 8th grade, so educational achievement was stressed, in our family. Statistically, I should have achieved little because I was a black female, living in public housing with a mother who had only an eighth grade education.
Because of my mother's emphasis on education, I was the first female in my family to graduate high school and go college. It has taken many tenacious years to complete a Bachelor degree in Accounting and a MBA in Business. Through being a military spouse and life circumstances, including a fight with cancer, I fought to achieve and obtain those degrees.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of the CPA certification, my opportunities have been limited, still. CPA review courses are expensive. I have not been able to gather enough money to participate in a good CPA review course, which is essential for my preparation and successful attainment of the Certified Public Accountant credential. Accomplishing the CPA credential will, not only congeal my educational efforts, but will also create a path for greater opportunities. My current degrees and experience together with the CPA credential, will open up greater opportunities, allowing me better provide for my children and myself.
Even having completed a bachelor degree and a master's degree, and with all that has been accomplished, currently, I have a job that pays barely enough to support myself and four children. Therefore, I am seeking the assistance and support of the community to aid in this endeavor to become a Certified Public Accountant. Please help.
