Just a little about me for those that dont know me. 2 yrs ago I was a newly wed in a nice new home. I had a well paying full time job and my husband had just begun his career with a new up and coming company. Within the last year I lost my job, at the same time that my husbands employer reduced his work substanially. The financial hardship caused us to lose much of our possesions including our home. Shortly after we filed for divorce, leaving me single, jobless and absolutely broke. I was hit with it all at once and eventually ended up hospitalized for severe anxiety. Not being one to lay down and just die- I decided to go back to school and finish my schooling. I have been able to sustain myself through multiple side part time jobs and living under a strict minimalistic budget. I am attending Cosumnes River College and I will be entering my last semester of school in January. I have taken 15 units at a time which is well over the full time student status. So far I have paid for all of my educational expenses but I have maxed out anything I had saved. Do to the way the school years are set up (Fall 2013-Spring 2014) and me filing for divorce in Jan- I do not qualify for any assistance since my ex husbands income was factored in. Though I got myself this far- I will not have the funding available to start my Spring semester I thought that maybe I should quit and just find a couple of full time jobs. Upon the insistance of my proffesors, councler and dean I have decided to attempt anyway I can to raise the money for the next school semester. My employers and teachers can account for my perseverance and drive. This is where you come in!! I have never asked anyone for money or abused anyones charity in any form but I also understand that I do wish more then anything to be able to complete this semester and continue on with my degree. I am truly grateful and appreciative of anyones assistance in helping me succeed.
