My Juris Doctorate
Organized by: Kpoti Accoh
EVENT DATE Aug 22, 2016
After my gradution I am planning on getting into the J.D. College of Law at the same University after my graduation in 2016. I do realize that I do not have to necessary pursuit higher school, but that was the whole reason I came in the US from West Africa in the first place. I could not find the finance to pay for my tuition so I worked in New York to save money and came back to Iowa to finish my Associate of Arts. I have since then worked through jobs to help pay for part of my school with some financial aid given the change in my status. I have been working fulltime as a mail clerk, , part-time at UPS and at a non-profit radio station radio station while caring for my family finishing up school. I would like to be able to focus on my studies when admitted to Law School. I still would have my part time job for the insurance and do work studies at the University. All I want is the chance to start my first year in good condition while figuring things out along the way. This fund would help me pay for the first year tuition and hopefully pay for the necessary accessories and bill for that first year. I just need a little push to make it happen. My end goal is to create an Advocate NGO that helps fight for those that are wrongfully convicted and those that do not get their voices heard. Also I am hoping to fight for the rights of all human beings as far as basic rights are concerned. If I do not do it with my own NGO, I hope I do so with the already established Nonprofit Organization like the UN, WHO and others.
Thank you for your considerations.
