Hi my name is Jorge, I'm currently a student at Florida International University. I've resorted to GoGetFunding to help pay for my tuition because my school cannot cover the entirety of it. My parents earn less than 20k a year, which is the cost of two semesters at FIU. I came two years ago from Cuba and had to learn English on my own to be able to succeed in high school. I started on half of my common junior year and in my senior I was able to take three AP, 2 honor and 1 dual enrollment classes, taking my GPA from a 3.95 to a 4.6. I had an ACT score of 29 and an SAT of 1830 with two months studying. I've been working really hard to get into this university and be able to succeed. However, due to money issues I'm not gonna be able to go on. All the money I receive will go into University expenses. I don't have any transportation either, so I'm only able to work when I go spend time with my family during the winter and hopefully the summer months. I'm only able to work a few hours per week, which only serves to help my parents. They are unable to support me in any way, but I try to help them. Thank you beforehand to those who will lend me a hand. Even a dollar can make a difference.
