In 2009, I --- like lots of people --- lost their job. I've been out of work since. I decided that this was the perfect time in my life to start anew, to finish my degree, and to have the career I want rather than the one I had to have to pay the bills. I'm 46, and I've been out of college for 24 years. I'm nervous, but I'm excited. I can do this!!!
I've got a student loan to pay for college. When I finish, I'll obviously have to pay that back. This fundraiser is to help me with that. I vow to put money aside once I start my new career in order to help another adult who finds themselves in my position.
