Hello everyone, If you're someone who likes to get straight to the point, scroll down now and you can avoid reading the tid bits of my background and why I'm here today. For others, please continue! From a young age, I always wanted to be a pilot. I'd play with planes, pretend I was a pilot, or flight attendant. My dad worked with Air Canada and also with Landstar, so he would always be away and I didnt get much of a chance to spend my childhood with him. He was always the bigger man doing whatever he could to support the family, my mom, my younger brother and I. Throughout my teens 13 to about 17 my family went through some financial struggles stemming from my dad's previous relationship. It was then that I realized my dream of becoming a pilot was very unrealistic considering its 80,000$ for a year of school price tag. 14 and a half, I started working hard over the summertime in Alberta, living with my aunties, trying to make money to support myself and take some of the stress off my parents. I managed to gather up a couple hundred dollars for myself and it did help ease their load. When I was 16 I bought my own car, 400$ cash, an old beater, but it was mine and like anything I own today I pay for it with money I earn myself working a serving job at Chez Cora. I realized how passionate about cars I was, performance, finding out how every little bit worked, and as I got my second car, I got into the tuner scene with a bright yellow Mazda RX-8 that I paid for myself as well at 17! After high school I took a course to help me Complete my Level 1 apprenticeship and help me work towards a Red Seal, the certification to become an official Automotive Technician. I did so well, I finished top of my class and landed an interview with Porsche and Mercedes-Benz. I spent my spring break testing out the grounds at both locations, realizing that Porsche was amazing, but the people there weren't friendly and I could tell the enviroment was terrible. Mercedes-Benz was welcoming and made me feel right at home. Within the first few hours of my arrival to the shop, during my volunteering, they pulled me into the office and said, WE HAVE TO HAVE YOU. So currently I work full-time at Mercedes Benz for about 2 years, and Chez Cora for over 5 years on weekends. I help my parents as much as I can by compensating them for me living at their house since I was 18, say rent. I also try and help anyone I can, emotionally, spiritually, mechanically, financially, however I can sincerely in the hopes that one day they do the same to someone else. The point So straight to the point, I will be going to school for level 2 in 26 days and I simply won't see how I will make it through without a little financial help. Having tried my hardest to help others and treat everyone once in a while, I've racked up my credit card to 4,000$, just shy of my 5,000$ limit. I will be able to pay my tuition only shy a couple hundred, although not being able to work at my jobs during school means no income. With living costs and car payments, gas, insurance etc. to be paid for even when I'm not working, from where I stand now, it looks damn near impossible, and I dont want this to be a second dream to give up on. I've tried many options, such as asking for a raise, selling used items etc. but when it comes down to it, I don't have much more to offer. Please help me pay off my 4,000$ credit card so I am able to make myself a little room to live and breath during school. I plan to put my living costs back onto my credit card, and work hard when I am able to get back to my full-time job to pay off my schooling costs. Remember, Anything helps. Over my goal? Now you're helping me pay not only for my living costs, but for my schooling as well, and every donation is greatly appreciated.
