For a time, I will be moving into a unknown territory up North. I was a veteran for our armed forces until deciding to pursue an education. I will be graduating from Texas tech university with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering this December. Now that I am older and am no longer viewed as a child but for what I am, a black man, I feel the burden that childhood innocence once sheltered me from. I need to leave West Texas and escape this cultures' glass ceiling. I am asking for help because while I work part time the job does not pay well enough for me to outpace even my minimalistic living expenses. I need short time help that would allow me to cover moving and living expenses in a new state up north for a few short months while I pursue a career with what would be my newly attained degree.
