Last Chance For An Education
Organized by: jake lemay
Hello. My name is Jake LeMay and I have been diagnosed with ADHD, Autism, PTSD, and Depression. Ever since I was a child, I have always Had trouble learning through an educational environment. I would always push myself to the limit to get through school, sometimes doing ok and other times failing. I've had help from my mother, disability services, counselors, and psychiatrists and eventually got through high school, though just barely. My biggest issues with learning include not being able to retain information from a lecture, causing me to completely relearn everything just to keep up, and not being able to do out-of-class assignments after a certain time (around 5:00 PM) on account of my medications wearing off. I tend to learn best when I'm teaching myself things such as programming, but unfortunately that isn't going to get me any written "proof of qualification" Now I'm in college and have a minimum wage job but I'm about to fail, and I cant go back. My only hope now is to work towards a certification in programming but I cant afford that nor can I afford to support me and my family since I am now in debt to the college I failed. Please, I need help. This is my last chance or I will lose what little hope I have left at a bright and successful future. I thank everyone who are willing to help me get through this.
