Hello, thank you for taking your time to read my story. I am so close to obtaining my Bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems ( Concentration in Computer Forensics). I come from an Italian family who have struggled to get here from Sicily. It is my parents dream for me to be able to have the proper education to excel in life. They wanted nothing better for me then to have a stress free life , something they could not have while younger. To give me what they couldnt have has cost us all of this debt and I would love nothing more than to pay them back. Their hard work and dedication has paid off. I have always been told that an education is the necessity to a successful life. That being said, I have invested my life saving and signed on for numerous student loans to achieve my goal of graduation and obtaining the experience and lessons. Having so much in debt is stressful and limits my ability to express my transferable skills to potential employers because I have to work non stop to not default on my loans. I will not let debt slow me down and I will always strive to finish what I started because success is nothing unless you continue on with what you have learned.
I am a senior at DeVry College of New York and will be graduating April 27, 2014. It is very tough to look for a potential career while having to constantly work. Going to interviews is tough because I cannot take of from work every week. Any donation would be greatly appreciated as I will be able to go on more interviews instead of having to work overtime and late nights. Thank you for your considerations and the time you have taken to read my story.
