Erica's Back to School Fund
Organized by: Erica Urrutia
Hi Everyone, My name is Erica. I am just starting to get my life back together after a really bad string of luck including but not limited to, losing my job due to downsizing (and as a result, loosing my apartment, car, etc and not being able to pay my bills), having to take care of my fiance who has some incredibly scary health issues popping up that we're dealing with and now I'm starting to have some health consequences due to high levels of stress. A friend of mine inquired about me going back to school. I waved it off at the time, I barely had enough money for food and medication, let alone tuition and books, but the more I thought about it, the more I found myself wanting it so very badly. Things have been so bleak that the thought of going back to school one day is the only thing that keeps me going a lot of the time. I am not the type of person that asks for help. I'm not. I've always been able to help myself so to even write this down just feels so humbling, but I've seen how wonderful people here can be and I'm hoping that maybe I can get a little help. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and I hope you can help me out.
