My name is Jesse, I'm hoping to get merit scholarship, which will be given to students who have enrolled over 50 credits and have total GPA of 3.85, after the summer session ends.
Including this second semester, I'll have total 43 credits, so I need more 7 credits in summer session. After I complete summer session with overall GPA of more than 3.85. I will be qualified for this scholarship and I'll no longer have to pay for my tuition fee.
The tuition fees for summer session will be due 25 of April. Although I'm doing part time job at a Japanese restaurant nowadays and teaching Chinese language to a primary school student (I'm Thai but I learned Chinese by myself, I took Chinese proficiency test and pass level 4 out of 6) but it's still not enough to reach the total tuition fees of $1500, i have saved up for a few months and now I only reached half of total amount.
I can't ask money from my parents anymore because my mom is currently a prisoner in the US, who is also diagnosed with leukemia, although it's not something severe but while she has to wait for the court judgement, she can't do any jobs so she has no money to pay for my tuition and my dad can't afford to pay because he has a lot of debt, he can only afford me money for meals.
I believe my degree will lead me to a brighter future, so I don't want to give up on my education. I thought I was running out of way to continue my education until someone introduced me to this site. To be honest, this is my last hope. I've never thought of begging people to pay my full tuition, I worked hard and studied hard for the past months to achieve my goal of continuing my Bachelor's degree. All I need is little help from each of you, I do believe with little help combined, it will help turning my dream into reality.
I truly appreciate you all taking the time to read my story and my goal and will be very grateful for every donation.
