Help Hayley pay for Columbia College Chicago! At least her first year which is $38,000

Hello, my name is Hayley Moore. I am seventeen years old and I have vast dreams. I am from Michigan. I do well in high school. I have a grade point average of 3.77 and I am ranked number eight out of ninety in my class. Therefore, I am in the top ten of my senior class. I am in National Honors Society in my high school and through the state of Michigan. I have also obtained my grade point average for at least four years. I have taken part in school activities such as SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), yearbook, color guard, and robotics. I believe in never smoking or drinking. Also, staying pure until I am married. I am responsible, ambitious, confident, and strong. I will be successful.

I have many talents such as photography, music, drawing, painting, modeling, acting, and designing fashion. There are some examples of my artwork attached to this letter. One of my strongest talents are photography. Last year in March, I started my own photography business. Since then, I have been very successful but I believe I need to further my education in the photography field. I have learned many skills like promoting and socializing from my business. I have gotten sixteen clients in the past and they all have loved their photos. Fashion and modeling are my second strongest talents. The students at high school say my fashion is the best they have seen and believe I can go somewhere with it. My junior year, I decided to take four photos a day of me modeling. Ever since then, people believe I already am a model. I guess what I am trying to say is that I have many talents that I am great at.

I want to attend Columbia College Chicago. I hope to major in Fashion Business and minor in Photography. I believe this school is perfect for what I want to become, a fashion stylist. The city is where I belong for my future career. In Michigan, there are not many art schools that have a major of fashion. 

Unfortunately, Columbia College Chicago is a pretty penny. I completed my financial aid but I did not receive much. I live in a single parent home and my mother does not make much money and she is in debt terribly. I only got $5,500 from Columbia College Chicago from my financial aid. My parents can only take out a loan of $10,000 and for my freshmen year, I can only take out $5,500. Sadly, I have not received any scholarships yet either. I have applied for at least fifty as of now. I would need about $9,000 more to be able to attend the college of my dreams. It would be kind if you could donate money to help me afford to go to Columbia College Chicago. If not, I understand.
