Victoria's Journey for Success
Organized by: Maria Arana
The fundraiser is to raise money for my sister's college tuition. Why did I decide to do this? My parents do not have a job and paying for the college tuition will be very stressful for my family. My sister already has loans to help her pay her tuition and a scholarship, as well. Thankfully, all she has to pay is $6000 per year. The reason my parents do not have a job is because my father got ill and fell into a coma, so he lost his job. My mother quit her job to take care of my father. Today, both are well but struggle to find a job due to their legal status, also my dad has not fully recovered and everytime he goes for an interview they say no because he is not fully recovered. By not fully recovered I mean that his left leg's muscles are asleep, so he drags his leg when he walks. So, when employers see his leg they think he is a slow worker, which he is not, but he never gets a chance to show them how he works. I am making this fundraiser for my sister's tuition and if the goal is meet my sister will donate some of the money to St. Jude's children hospital.
