My name is Paige Ouellette, I live in Massachusetts and am currently a High School Senior, Class of 2015. Ever since I was little I had an imaginative mind, just like any normal child, but I wanted to use that imagination for my career. Thats when I realized I wanted to go to college for Game Art and Design. I come from a big family, I have 4 brothers and one sister, and of course my mom. We dont have a lot of money, and getting things for school alone is difficult for my mother. We have moved so often I have lost track of how many times. My mother was the only hard working person in the house, she had to support the family, be the one to keep us off the streets. When my stepfather passed away in 2009, she had a more difficult time doing so. After a while, I helped my mother, and she was able to get into college and do what she loves. Now its my turn to prepare for college, the only problem is that I am on my own to pay for everything. The college I plan on going to is located in California, I plan on driving there from MA and getting my own apartment with friends, and am currently looking for a second job to help save up. Then, I realized that no matter how many hours I work, I wouldnt have enough to go to my college. In total the tuition is $90,000, it is a lot more than I was hoping for, but this is my dream and I will fight for it. I havent won any scholarships, I am currenetly working on a few and hope they will help. I got FASFA, but it is not giving me much either to help. Please, help me make this dream a reality, even if its just a dollar it gets me one step closer to my dream. Thank you so much for your time.
