Help Alex Go To College So She Can Gain That Knowledge
Organized by: Alex McGrane
I can understand how $20,000 seems like a lot of money. At 22, I understand that more than ever before. I am not making excuses and can only say I've had some troubling last few years. I've strugged with depression for many years and at 18 spend a short amount of time in the psychiatric ward at a hospital. I still struggle, but I do believe I'm in a much better state than I was then. It seems now, the anxiety and depression stem from the lack of resources I have to remove myself from this situation that I feel so stuck in. For the past few years, I've been working a full time job making minimum wage. That's it. That's my life. I never realized how easy it would be to get stuck and how hard it would be to escapte the everyday monotony that is sometimes life. I desperately want and have wanted to go to school for computer programming or something of that nature. I have some family in Washington and that is where I want to attend school. I ask for $20,000 so that I can disperse the funds between tuition, moving expenses and a very cheap car (like $2,000 cheap). I don't currently own a vehicle and that is one reason why going to school seems so difficult. I cannot afford to lease a car; I am barely able to pay my bills as it is. I go to work every day and I work with people twice my age. In fact, all of my friends are twice my age. I look at my friends and they're working the same job I'm working. I'm 22 and I don't have kids or car payments or a mortgage and I am barely making it. I can see what my life could so easily turn into if I don't change my environment. I don't have anybody to ask for help. I feel stuck and all I want is to be 22, go to college, and make something of the one life I've got. I apologize if I've rambled. I don't want to offer up my sob story. I've never asked for money and don't want to give away too much or too a little. I'm only asking for help now so that later on in life I can do the same for somebody else. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and giving a thought to donate to this cause of mine.
P.S. The little guy in the pictures is my nephew who I am absolutely in love with. :)
