My first semester at Elon University has been the best four months of my life. I have made friends, been props master for a mainestage show, worked har to fit into my major, become an RA for the Spring semester, sucessfully completed a 300 leve class as a freshman and learned more than I ever thought I would learn. It is only February and I feel like I have been here for five years, with all of the new things I have been taught and have absorbed.
Unfortunately I will not be able to complete my area of study (Theatrical Design and Production) nor will I be able to complete any significant amount of college) without your help.
I have been an emmancipated student since I was 16. I am paying for Elon entirely on my own. Between t-shirts and fun trips to food and tuition, everything adds up. Skipping the fun and games is all fine, but it's downright terrifying to think of being asked to leave my school because of lack of funds.
I am in desperate need of help, and I only want to continue school. Nothing has ever given me a purpose in life like Elon has. I found where I "bELONg." Please help me stay here.
