Hello, my name is Julie. I am 36 years old. My husband is disabled due to a back injury and we are raising 3 beautiful children. I work full time as a customer service representative for a white-water rafting company and I volunteer as a firefighter. I am currently a senior at a Central Maine University and I am studying for my Bachelor's Degree in Fire Science. My goal is to one day become a state fire marshal. I have excelled in my studies at Kaplan University earning a GPA of 3.97 and have been on the President's list every seminar of my college career. I have also received and accepted many honor society nominations. I recently learned that my financial aid will not cover the entire cost of my tuition. I have sought out different ways of paying for this unexpected cost but have had no luck. This is my last resort in finding a way to finish school. My family has already given up so much for me to have the opportunity to go to college, I don’t want them to bear the burden of this also. Please consider helping me accomplish my goals and graduate. I have worked so hard to maintain my grades and graduate within the top 10% of my class. I want to thank you ahead of time for your donation and your kindness. It is appreciated much more than you will ever know. Bless you.
