Hello! my name is Emily R Prado 22 years old. I'm from Venezuela. I moved to the united states 3 years ago with a F1 status for the people who do not know that is a student visa. I moved here with my two siblings. we came here because in Venezuela we were in danger that is why my mom made the sacrifice to sent us away. We haven't been able to go back since 2013. We are here by our self and sometime it is kind of hard to grow and look forward without any help or support. In Venezuela we have a different currency to get dollars we have to go through a long process to "buy" money. Through the years my mom was able to help us but in the beginning of the last year my mom lost her job in Venezuela there is where all our problems started. she couldn't help us to pay for our college like she always did. We started to look for jobs here but to find a job here without paper or documents is really hard. We find a job in the library at St thomas University in Florida just a 15 hours job. We have being studying at that university since we moved here. The staff there are really nice they help us with the job. Since last year we have been moving on with different friends that have been letting us to stay with them for a few days because the money we made is not enough to pay for a rent . St Thomas university let us continuing our bachelor last year without paying the tuition but this year they are not being able to help us because we owe them too much money. Me and My sister are in the same major we have a GPA of 3.7 and a scholarship of 3.000 we also joined the cheerleader team to get 1.000$ of scholarship. We are in our senior year we really want to finish our bachelor but if WE DONT PAY 25.000$ by the end of the week we are not gonna be able to graduate and lose everything we did last year because we haven't pay those classes. Also we are going to have to go back to Venezuela and actually we don't even have the money to buy the airfare tickets. We really need your help to complete one of our goals in life that is graduate Thank you
