Dream College Tuition Funding
Organized by: Melissa Hansen
My name is Melissa Hansen. I was born extremely premature which resulted in my Cerebral Palsy and brain damage. I completed one year of college and would like to continue as a sophmore in the fall. I am raising money for the first quarter of my second year at Eastern Washington University in order to achieve my overall goal: a degree in Criminal Justice. I would need the funds by September 21st. This would mean so much to me because school was extremely difficult in the beginning and I struggled to even complete high school with my disabilities. But I worked hard. And I did it. Many people told me not to apply to a four year college, because the likelihood of me getting in was quite slim due to my difficulties in high school. The day I got that acceptance letter was by far the best day of my life, because not only did I overcome all the odds by getting accepted, but I also proved to myself and others that I could get accepted and continue furthering my education despite the difficulties. I would be ever so grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue my college carrer and to anyone who would help contribute to that goal, I would be forever thankful.
