View Full Story

“I live closer to the lower west side of Buffalo, NY. It’s not the best neighborhood for many reasons. For high school I went to a private school and I attended mainly due to financial aid and the scholarships that I received. My family wasn’t really able to pay much for my tuition and I am going through the same situation in college as well. It was said that my parents made more than what government aid could give me. However, that’s not really the case because we are still struggling. However, despite my financial discrepancies, I still attend college, I am in my second year at Buffalo State College. I study Health and Wellness there and hope to be a wellness coach and chiropractor. As I said prior, even though I am going through financial hardship, I still have a goal in mind and I will do my best to achieve it.”

“As I said before I am fundraising because I do not receive financial aid. I am trying my absolute best to not take out a loan for my undergrad. I have been barely scraping by in that regard. This semester I had to cover the remaining tuition myself. However, I don’t believe that it will be possible for me to pay for books and tuition every year because I simply can’t afford it.”
