My name is Johari. I'm 18 years old and I've just been accepted into the highly competitive School of Theatre, Film and Media Arts at Temple University. Unfortunately, if I cannot raise $15,000 by August 20th I won't be able to go. My family situation is... difficult. At 14 years old, I had to leave home to live with family friends. Before starting 9th grade, I had never been to school, so it took time to adjust to the pace, the work, the people in high school. With help from my chosen family, I not only gained my high school diploma, but was accepted to college. As a Black girl, I was taught to take care of others, and spent my childhood taking care of younger siblings. Now I need your help. If 100 people each gave $150.00 I could reach my goal and go to the school of my dreams. Will you help me?
