I am writing to represent myself, Jeremy McCollum, and to say thank you for taking a quick minute to review my story and request. This letter is my way of reaching individuals who may have more resources for support as I am a full-time employed citizen, part-time worker and a full-time online student. I have exhausted my Veterans Affairs college funding from my undergraduate school, but I have since gone back to graduate school to pursue my new career path in becoming a Computer Science Software Developer. With a family of 5 and trying to pay off our debts, as a follower of Dave Ramsey, we are working extremely hard trying to get by. I am currently running into a problem with extra financial help for me to work with a tutor. I am struggling trying to learn as much as I must learn by myself with all my other responsibilities as a parent and employee of two different places so that we can pay our bills. I do not want to give you a sob story or waste your time, I have exhausted all other sources so I am desperately trying to find a small amount of financial support so that I can continue learning so that one day I can be working in a career that makes a difference and that I can be happy and proud of. One day I want to give wealth back to people and families that are struggling in a similar way that I am. I really do appreciate the time you took to read this letter. You may not know me, but I want people to read and have an understanding for what I am asking and not give any sense of false testimony.
