My name is Tish and I'm going to college for BS/Nursing. I'm a Certified Nursing Assistant and a ticket agent. I was dropped down to part-time from full-time at my nursing job without notice and that cut into my hours and money. I'm now working as needed at my nursing job and work as a ticket agent two days out the week for 12 hours. I have been saving money but soon as school started all that money went GOODBYE when my balance for tuition came and total for books. I have been having trouble getting funding for school. I'm in my second year of school and financial aid doesn't help much. My first year of college I had to come out of pocket with $6,000 half if that coming from my dad. I have had trgedies left and right and I'm trying to maintain in school but it's hard. A couple of years back my parent's house was robbed and they took the safe with my tuition money that was suppose to fund me for three years. Recently in September my brother was murdered down in florida and my uncle in washington, dc died of cancer. I had to take off from both of my jobs and cut into my savings to help with funeral cost of my brother. It has been hard on me and my family but we have managed I'm worried by next semester I wont have enough money for books and lab fees. With this money I would be able to cover almost the rest of my two years in college. If anyone can donate as little as $1.00 it would be greatfully appreciated and all of these funds would be used towards school. I would be so blessed I love to help people, I can give back to the community and being a nurse means everything to me. I got certified while I was still in high school and they paid for everything. I love what I do and with the donators help I will be able to continue to help all around.
