My greatest dream: To have a college degree
Organized by: Aryory Mejia-Vargas
My name is Ary, I am a nineteen year-old college student.
I have been waiting to go to college for a long time, it is hard to remember a time that I didn't want to go. I am a Political Science and International Relations major, and right now I am going through a tough time economically. I am independent financially and am funding my college education entirely through loans and the little I can make while being a full-time student. It is hard for me to be so personal about the things I am having to go through to continue my education, but the truth is: I've gone hungry, sleepless, and I have even gone into a depression because at many points, things seemed very rough.
I have fought my whole life to keep hoping that I will someday do good, despite the challenges I've experienced, I have always aspired to be more than just a number. I know that A LOT of people have gone through and are going through what I am experiencing but I know that in life, if you do not take chances, you miss the opportunity. This money would help me pay my housing so I can continue going to college, and this is what I direly need to continue.
