For the last two semesters I have had the honor of being a student at Loyola University. The paths I have tread to get to this point have been difficult, to say the least. However I will not dwell on the past. I consider all the hardships a character builder, had I not overcome adversity and circumstance, I would never be able to appreciate my position in life today. Back in November 2011 my father was murdered in Nigeria, and since then I have endured very difficult financial burdens due to me taking on the responsibilities of supporting my mother as well as two younger brothers. Unfortunately when my father passed I had to file for bankruptcy and I accrued a lot of debt afterwards because I wasn’t able to simultaneously pay bills while caring for my family and paying to get an education. This caused me to fall into a huge deficit totaling in the amount of $7000, and the amount has to be paid in full in order for me to continue school in the fall of August 2014. My education is very important to me and it will be a big relief if I can recieve some help. If people donate $10 each, I'll be at my goal. If you live in the Chicago area, I'm willing to donate my services as an expert organizer, a terrific nanny, a dog walker, waitress, or a maid. I can forward you with my resume along with references. Thank you for your consideration. Just let me know what you'd like as return payment!!!!!!!!! I know this isn’t too realistic but I’m trying whatever I can, so if you can, please help!!
