I never thought I would find myself so in need of support. I've held a job since age 16. I'm now 27, and find myself a crossroads that I cannot pass, without help.
I'd like to share with you how I've come to this point. I wish I could say I had a childhood full of wonderful memories, however, it was a harsh and demanding reality for which I suffered immensely. My Father was behind most of the suffering. He was deeply troubled, but, over the years as I became older, we started to understand each other, and became close. I was able to forgive him or so many horrible moments. I shared with him my dream to be just like Dana Scully on the X-Files, not ideal, but exciting. He told me, "If you want to be Dana Scully, make sure you find your Mulder." Six years ago, my Father died of a massive heart attack. It was the worst day of my life, because I saw it happen. Soon after, I found out my Dad had started a college fund, but we needed to cash it out to pay for his funeral. For the last 6 years, I've been working in Healthcare; a job that as guided me to do what I want to do for the rest of my life, helping others. My goal is to be a Physician's Assistant in Emergency Medicine. No, it's not Dana Scully, but it's still involves a passion I would never tire of. I've been accepted to school, starting August 26th, 2013. My tuition is covered through Federal Aid, however, I am without money for books. Most would say, "Why don't you put it on a credit card?" I don't have this option. My boyfriend is in the Police Academy, which means he is unable to work for 16 weeks, therefore, no income. My boyfriend is my Mulder to my Scully, just like Dad wanted. We're so committed to eachother and our future, and I know he would help me financially if he could. The reason I am so low on funds for books, is because I have been paying rent while he is in the Police Academy. I am so desperate to go to school. Please consider donating what you can, and maybe I can help you and your health in the future. Thank you.
