Hope in education for new start in life.
Living with Marfan Syndrome (connective tissue disorder) has been a struggle out of my 34 years in life. Growing up very tall, lazy eyed and week bones made me want to forget I have it sometimes.
Recently my health has been not up to par. I'm going through cateract surgery which my case is sensitive due to my disorder and daily being in pain in my joints.
Every month there is another health issue and added bills. I did complete college with my bachelors but I work two jobs, donate plasma (2xweekly) and still behind on everything. I"m struggling to pay for my surgery. My dream has been to complete my master's in Human Resource Management so I can become a HR Generalist. I think position would help me in my career and pay for my growing medical debt along with my daughters.
I was told recently that I'm running out of student loan money. Going to school has been a motivation and light to end my current struggles. My life has been struggles since childhood and this news broke me down. I cried and asked school finanical aid and anyone I knew of any options. I have applied for scholarships and everything and I"m still at square one. I need to raise $20,000 to complete my education with books. I remain faithful that something will happend.
Every day I get up in the Pursuit of Happiness of finding a way to fix my issues and one day I will succeed. I want to be successful and show my daughter to never give up. I don't want to give up and need someone to believe in me and see the light for myself as I do.
Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine. Jack Ma
“The future was uncertain, absolutely, and there were many hurdles, twists, and turns to come, but as long as I kept moving forward, one foot in front of the other, the voices of fear and shame, the messages from those who wanted me to believe that I wasn’t good enough, would be stilled.” – Chris Gardner
“Always, always pursue happiness.” – Chris Gardner
