Hi, my name is Alex and I am a full-time homeschooled student. My mom is a single mother, and we live in a small condo with our three dogs. Despite having an amazing mother, I didn’t grow up in the best situation. My mother and I were at the hand of an abusive man, and it took a lot for us to get out of the situation. After a grueling divorce and a couple house changes, we are living pretty freely. However, being the daughter of a single mom does not provide me with much for the cost of college tuition. I am independent and ambitious and will be graduating high school in about a year, when I am only 16. After that, I want to go to an amazing college with a fantastic nursing program; UCLA is my number one choice. Unfortunately, the cost of out-of-state tuition is very steep and my mom and I cannot afford it on our own. So I reach out to you, to the community, to help me out so that I can get into the college of my dreams. It would mean so much to me if you donated how ever much you can; it will all go towards my college tuition. Many thanks!
