Hi! I am a full time university student doing a double major at the University of Windsor. Bachelor of Music/Bachelor of Psychology.
My name is Ryan and I am 34 years old!
I will outline here what the money, if funded will go towards:
Replacing the.brand new macbook and iphone that I use for 10 hrs a day to complete my studies....they were stolen off of a bus I took home last week.(approx $3200 just on those, and I have a lot of money invested into software, hardware etc to accomodate more efficient studying).....
also to pay an internet bill for a few months and be sure there is no fail on that. Everything is online.....and without access.....Im done for.
Assistive study devices such as "CPen Reader" and "Moleskine Smart Writing Kit." "Digital voice recorder...And a few other things of this sort.
The place I am living at right now costs me $1700 plus all utilities......on my own....and its not the greatest place.....so I would be also be using the funding as a deposit for a cheaper, more appropriate place to live....I need my sons. (3, and 1)in my life and plan to homeschool them while we all wait for life to go back to whatever the new normal will be.
My 3 yr old is exceptionally intelligent and it would be a shame for both him and I to come to a halt in Education. My 1 yr old just wants to do what his big brother is doing. :-) He will also be no shortage of intelligence..
Should I be funded.....that doesn't fund tuition or anything......I do get a student loan but it is not much more than my tuition. And they are extremely behind on funding people just due to working remotely etc. I start a summer semester in 5 days.....and dont even have an electronic device (strong enough cell phone, laptop.) To study with......
I have zero supports where I am......and only 5 more days to.figure this out before classes start.
Should you choose to donate....your kindness and currency will not be taken lightly or wasted.
This is all Ive got.....school and my boys....
If I can do something for you that would help you make a decision. Help you out in any way......please....consider it done....but I HAVE TO get back to classes on Monday....and dont have the tools to do so.....if I cant attend school.......well......Ill sink, essentially.....and the living situation..... i need to have my boys by my side during these times, they keep me grounded..... And help me cope and focus.....but my current 1700$ is falling apart and not overly child appropriate.....
HELP ME SUCCEED FOR MY KIDS AND SO THAT I MAY USE THESE DEGREES TO HELP OTHERS.
Im willing to provide receipts, updates.....and it would improve the quality of life of not only myself but my two little guys!!.....
Below.....is a bit of a backstory if you are interested:
I was given up as a child by the time I was 2 years old and there started the back and forth of group homes and foster homes, and the revolving door of people in and out of my life....Music and my passion for Education raised me.
I cant say it was easy.....but I think I did well in making it work. I've always kept positive and dreamt big! I think Im pretty intelligent and charismatic and I believe a lot of folks would agree. :-)
Fast forward to 2021.....I am now a father of two beautiful young boys (Raphael, 3.....Thoven, 1.5) who are bright and cute as whips.....Raphael is a little musical genius and Thoven wants to always be near his brother. They are my soul.
My wife on the other hand.....has spent the past 5 years....taking advantage of the fact that I am an emotional person, and using that and the fact that I moved to her city....4hrs away from my own...and I dont know anyone here...... to establish dominance and control in our relationship and marriage. She has yet to allow me to be a part of my own life here....I don't get an opinion....a voice......not allowed to have friends....consistently uses our beautiful children as weapons against me....driven a wedge between a lot of strong relationships from my past....with my friends and what I call my parents. ....I owned a successful landscape construction company.....and she forced me to close it...because she doesn't like not knowing what my paycheque is going to be.
I have been assualted.....verbally abused, threatened, controlled and isolated for some years now..
I refuse to not be there for my children, therefore I cant leave Windsor.....and shes made sure I have no supports....
I grew up dealing with severe insomnia, anxiety, depression, tourrettes syndrome(very mild) OCD..and abandonment issues....the mix of them can be tough.....and she preys on that. Not every now and then but almost daily. I can prove this at tjr drop of a dime.......Point being.....Im on my own here....
Fighting custody battles...getting divorced....diagnosed with PTSD as a result of being in a toxic relationship with a woman with High Conflict Personality Disorder......
Ive been stripped of almost everything......but school....These degrees are a make or break situation at this point and what Im hanging on to....she has tried to sabotage my education...but Ive been guarding it.....its been tough....but Im here.
Even to this day I go out of my way to help people if they need it. I have a hard time saying no!
If I can get through this tough time and blast my degreed out....Im out to help as many people as I can.....because nobody deserves to be in my situation right now.
Please help if you can....it will not be wasted.....and I will find ways to pay it forward as immediately as I can....if you have any ideas....Im up for it!
My Boys and I thank you in advance!!!
Ryan, Raphael and Thoven!!!
