So, I work in San Francisco and I met this girl the other day near a BART station downtown. I had just dropped my cellphone and had been asking strangers to use theirs to make an important call. Of course, most everyone is at least a little suspicious of such a request, so i hadn't had any takers...until this girl saw my situation and offered me the use of her phone. We got to talking after my call and i began to realize that she may be the most selfless girl i've ever met in my life. This girl, Teresa, has been trying to finish her bachelors degree for almost 10 years now...shes worked long hours, taken on a ton of student debt, had to juggle caring for her young sister, and receives no help at all from her parents in paying for her education. Beyond it all, she still remains optimistic that one day she'll reach her goal...one day she'll put on her cap and gown and finally realize her dream. I want to help make that happen. Please look at the pictures here and if this story touches you, if you have ever been in a similar situation, please give something to help a truly deserving girl finish college...
She had one year left.
Lets give it to her
