Thank you for taking an interest in my education and finding out WHY I am in need of funding.
WHO: My name is Cynthia and I served in the United States Air Force - Reserves from 1988 til 1996 (in a reservist capacity). Did you know that Reservist who have NEVER served ANY Active Duty time do not receive ANY type of benefits once they've separated from the military with an Honorable discharge. We Reservist do not receive further GI Bill assistance, No VA medical assistance, No Death/Burial assistance, nothing, NA DA.
WHY: I'm continuing my education while furthering my dream of becoming a business owner. I've enrolled at Crave Beauty Academy in Ballwin, Missouri in the Esthetics program and started classes on Monday, January 6, 2020 in a Full-Time capacity (35 hours/week)
Phase I: Monday - Friday (9am til 4:30pm) for 8 weeks
Phase II - IV: Tuesday - Saturday (9am til 4:30pm) until graduation in June 2020
WHAT: Yes, I applied for Financial Aid which doesn't fully pay for my education
THIS IS WHY I'm reaching out to folks I don't know. This is REALLY difficult ESPECIALLY at this stressful time, I'm pushing ALL the shame and EMBARRASSMENT far, far away (and those that do know me...well, they aren't financially able to assist). Am I'm nervous about asking strangers for assistance...Of course! But because, I've asked for educational funding before and was shot down by social media folks who've never met me and said AWFUL things to me because I'm a woman, a woman of color and an older woman....that can't stop me from trying AGAIN.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO: The funding goes DIRECTLY to the school's Financial Aid Officer to place into my account.
DUE WHEN: **ALL PAYMENTS are due on the 15th of each month starting, January 15, 2020. They have broken it down to $4,577/5 monthly payments of $915.40 DUE MONTHLY.**
PLANS AFTER GRADUATION: I have 3 more certificate specialty classes in Para Med Microderma Pigmentation, I have to take after I finish this major educational step. Please follow me to see where I take this leap a faith!
If you are a Care Taker, then you know the situation I am in at this time, I'm working as a Care Taker for my mother (81-year old, USAF Veteran Lt.R.N.) and we are basically taking care of one another. I work part-time as a Brand Ambassador (which is a cyclical position-the holiday season is over, so work has basically stopped).
Please help me pay for school and send many blessings my way!
Thank you for your help abundantly.
