Stuff About Me:

I have been to hell and back in my life. It all starts when I was a little girl, growing up Chattanooga Tennessee. My mother passed away when I was 5 years old, my father was never around. This opened me to getting not only raped by family members, but molested as well. After moving with my aunt, which is the only time I experienced an adult's protection (which was shortlived), I finally felt loved. My aunt passed away only 2 years after moving with her. That is when I moved to California and more hell came my way. I was threatened daily to be molested, raped or killed by a distant cousin-in-law. I finally told someone in high school, a school counselor and the family member was arrested. I was then homeless for a while and finally, I received an advance on scholarship money, allowing me to buy clothes so I wouldn't repeatedly wear the same jeans daily at school. And once I graduated high school, I was able to move in the dorms at the first university that I have ever attended. I received a bachelor's degree in Health Science, now I have just finished a master's degree in Public Health and I am almost finished with my prerequisites for medical school. Again, I have experienced homelessness, car repossession, fires in which I have lost it all and still I have managed to pursue this dream with perseverance. Now I need the financial help to continue on. Please help me, by the grace of God, I have held on as much as I can to this dream of being the best doctor the world has ever seen.
