am Eric from Ghana. Due to this pandemic, I have gone through a whole lot of stress in Ghana. I really want to make my dreams in life come true by getting to Kent State University. Through my struggles and hard work, I have gained scholarships and acceptance into college in the United States. I am asking for $5000 U.S. dollars to help pay for traveling fees and some debt to get to the United States.
My dream is to be a neurosurgeon and help save lives. In order for you to help me reach my dream, I need your help. I have already been blessed with help from friends I have made in the states. In order for me to complete this dream, I need help in my final stretch in raising $5000 for traveling fees. Any donation will be greatly appreciated for my journey to getting into college.
I had an interest in being a neurosurgeon ever since my grandad fell sick in Ghana. He stayed with me in my room and I wished I could help him medically but I couldn't. I, unfortunately, had to watch him die. We didn't have any medical help here in Ghana. I want to save lives and prove people wrong that even with being poor, hard work can get you anywhere in life. This is my only goal and I won't stop working until it is done.
I was eating once a day. I sometimes do not sleep because of the stress here in Ghana. I think about selling everything I have left just to be able to eat. I hope to come to America and make an honest living and provide for my family back home. God has blessed me thus far and I hope to help others enough so I won't have to see my close friends and family struggle with what I had to in life.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart if you chose to contribute to my fundraiser and I hope God blesses you all."
