My name is Gabriela Gonzalez,
I am a hardworking and ambitious 19-year-old student fighting for my chance to go to college. I am not elligible for any federal financial aid and have applied to many grants and scholarships that I haven't been able to attain. Going to college has always been my dream. I want to become a professional. I want to become all that I can be and I want to make my family proud. I have been working long hours day in and day out with this goal in mind, but I am not even close to having enough funds. If I earn enough money, my attendance to the University of Minnesota will become a reality. Please, the smallest of donations bring me one step closer to a better life.
