Amariah is a 15 year old high school student. Her mother, Aisha, suffers from complications of Type 1 diabetes and is on dialysis awaiting a kidney transplant. Aisha only receives Social Security Disability and has struggled the past year paying for Amariah's school tuition. Aisha is in and out of the hospital with complications of her health and despite that, Amariah is a straight A student, was MVP of her JV cheerleading team as a freshman and started playing lacrosse as a freshman and was awarded Offensive MVP on her JV lacrosse team. Amariah is also part of the Community Service Club where she tutors elementary school children in math, helps with different special Olympics events. She now has been invited to join The National Society of High School Scholars. All of her hard work and accomplishments may come to an end if Aisha cannot come up with the funds to pay the back tuition from last year and the up coming tuition for 2018-19 school year. Amariah has an opportunity to also go to Italy the summer of 2019 with her class if the funds can be raised.
I am a single mother that wants the best for her child. I don't want her to end up in the neighborhood school, where someone got stabbed in the stairway. She is a bright girl, my only child and I would do anything for her. It's hard enough paying the bills and keeping food on the table with a once a month income. Any help to keep my daughter on her path to success would be more than appreciated. #NSHSS #MVP #COMMUNITYSERVICE #DIALYSISSUCKS #DIALYSISPARENT #SCHOLAR #CLASSOF2021
