Hi, My name is shannon and I am a single mom with a wonderful one and a half year old son.
I am in my third year of university and I would love to finish my degree so that I can have my dream job and be able to provide for my son. I am a hard worker but one person can only do so much considering the cost of living these days. At the moment, times are tough and I dont think I can afford to go back to school this September to finish my degree. Rent, bills, food and chld care are almost too much for me to handle at the moment and I know I wont be able to work as much when I go back to school. Right now I am working dull time but I have very little money for food after I pay all of my expenses. I often go without eating so that my son can eat because I cant afford to feed us both. My son is just about to grow out of his clothes so he will need new clothes and shoes soon and I have no idea how I wil be able to provide this for him if I have to pay for school as well. It seems like I have to choose between meeting our basic short-term needs and achieving long-term stability.
I am humbly asking for help to pay for my tuition and textbooks. If theres is anything left over I will use it for living expenses such as food and clothes for my son while I am attending school. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I know that getting an education is the only way to give my son everything he deserves.
If you are unable to help please share my story with your friends. Thank You.
