I am a student of literature that is forced to take a year of from studying due to financial reasons. I will however be working, but the income generated from that would cover living costs. My hope with this fundraiser is to generate extra capital to invest in books, as I need to keep up with what's happening in my field of study. I am really passionate about what I do, and am really nervous about taking a year off. Funds collected would allow me to stay informed and make it easier for me to get back into it in 2018. Thank you in advance!
