Gina's College Fund
Organized by: Gina Rios
In 2012, I attended a private university I had received financial for. A week before the semester ended, the university informed me they had taken back my scholarship and student loans I had accepted at the beginning of the semester. Now I have to pay $12,000 out of pocket before they will release my transcripts to me. I am left unable to attend any college or university. Without my degree, it's been impossible to find a decent job. I've spent the last couple years working in retail and living paycheck to paycheck. I have managed to pay off some interest that has accumulated on my bill, but at this rate I'll never manage to pay off my debt. My goal is to pay off the remainder of my tuition bill so that I can request my transcripts and attend our local college.
