Hello! I am a high school student wanting to continue learning psychology in college. I have been saving money for years and my parents have helped me as well but sadly I still haven't got the needed amount and with less than a year to go I doubt I will collect enough money on my own. So I am asking for Your help in hopes to make my dream come true.
Why I wanna learn psychology? As a young teenager I was very depressed for years and honestly I am still recovering. Going to different doctors and taking different medication I understood why so many people don't want to ask for help and why so many are avoiding going to a doctor. Those white walls, white outfits, uncomfortable chairs and people asking questions without really listening to my answers can seem very terrifying. My goal is to be a caring and educated friend rather than just a doctor and I wanna create an environment that feels friendly, welcoming, comfortable and is more colorful to make the experience less scary. I want to help people with mental disorders, specially people with depression, because no one should ever feel like they are waste of space and don't deserve to live.
I plan to learn in a public school in USA and my studies would last for 5 years (3 years for bachelor's and 2 years for master's degree). The total cost of tuition, fees, housing, books and other school items would be about $60,000.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to read all that and a huge THANK YOU to all that donate!
