Hi everyone! My name is Marina, and I am the first in my family to go to college. I've grown up facing a lot of hardships; people constantly telling me, "You're not going to make anything of yourself... You're always going to be worthless." And that was just my dad and brothers. I heard a lot worse from them and people I went to high school with as well. However, I kept on pushing myself to be better. I kept telling myself that I can not give up. Finally, my persistence is paying off. Yet, it may be for nothing. Although I did get accepted for financial aid, I fear it is not enough to cover all of my expenses. As a Photography student, my equipment alone is near double my tuition. I have applied for other grants and scholarships; however, I missed the deadline on the major ones by a few days. I have not other way to pay for school. So I ask you to please help me. I would make a video, but my webcam doesn't work anymore. So please, once again, I ask for your help. Thank you all!
