My name is Karen. I am a 28 year old mother who made some wrong choices early in life. I am on the straight and narrow how, working full time, have my own place. I have overcome many challenges from being homeless, to having debilitating mental illness, and the last year has been the best and worst of my life. Best because I have made the most progress and excelled the most, and worst because of personal loss (I lost my grandfather who raised me) and injury (I broke my ankle and was forced to stay immobile for six weeks.)

One of the bad choices I made when I was younger was going to school at a very expensive technical school and not being able to afford it or pay back my student loans. School is my dream. There is nothing I want more then an education so that I can better my life and my children's future and be able to pay for their college.

My new plan is that I want to go to community college, but I have to pay cash that I can not afford and I am not getting any younger. Its a vicious cycle, so I just have to find a way to pay. I will have to pay 250 a month for 3 years or about 4,500 total. I am going to go for Network Administration with security specialization. It is my passion! Please help me achieve my dream.
