Hello all! My name is Tonae’ and I am currently a sophomore majoring in Communication at a private college. Receiving a higher education from a four year institution is very important to me as I will only be the second person to do so in my family. I am very active within my college, holding leadership positions in multicultural and environmental organizations, attending rigorous courses, and having a campus job and a seasonal job while I am away from school. Despite this, I have struggled each semester, trying to fund my tuition, and although I receive grants and scholarships, it is still not enough. In the past, I had received aid from my father by receiving money from his post 9/11 G.I Bill for his service overseas, but the aid I have gotten from that source will soon be expired. As of now, during my sophomore spring semester, I have an overdue balance on my tuition statement and must pay this to return as a junior the following year and to even sadly, be able to access my grades for this semester. My actual goal is to acquire 10,000 dollars to fully help me with my financial needs, but I will be grateful with any donation I receive. I would like to complete my education at this institution to propel my status in acquiring a job in my career field, in which the school that I attend has been noted for its rigorous program and great opportunities including their study abroad program. I plan to help others , including my mother who needs assistance with her health issues and to give back to my community in the future in any way possible. I have goals of being a news reporter, activist, and humanitarian, but I will need the support and assistance of others first to make this happen. Thank you all so much for hearing my story and I will appreciate and acknowledge any contribution you give.
