Hi, my name is Kenedi. I'm 21 years old. Within the last year I've moved away from home and I'm self supporting. To pay for my living expenses, I work as a receptionist for an Animal Hospital in Coral Springs, Florida. I am completing my undergraduate studies at Palm Beach State College. I'm only 7 classes away from completing my Associates Degree after which I will be pursuing my Bachelors Degree in Biology. My heart's desire is to work with children. I recently learned that I no longer qualify for financial aid because I'm still considered a dependent until the age of 24 even though I am financially independent of my family. Therefore, I am hoping to raise enough money to fund my summer semester so that I can complete my Associates Degree which is the first step on my career path. I believe that with your generosity and compassion I will be one step closer to my life's calling. I am deeply grateful for your support.
