My name is Carly, I'm the oldest of seven children. I'm a sixteen year old high school graduate with a 4.19 GPA. I've been accepted into Ringling College of Art and Design, but unfortunately the tuition is about $53,000 per year. My parents are divorced; my Mom raised my siblings and I, and my dad is a factory worker, so we don't exactly have that kind of money. I've applied for multiple scholarships, grants, and financial aid.. but even with that help, I'll still be $22,000 short each year. Ringling is the only place I could see myself furthering my education. Art is the only thing I want to do in life. For everyone that can help me reach my dreams, I will send you a small original drawing. You can call Ringling College of Art and Design and speak with my admissions counselor, Bucky, to verify that this is true at 941-351-5100. Every little bit will help me realize my dreams.
