I am trying to raise money so I can attend Cornell University's Summer College. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. God Bless


Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. The reason why I am looking for help it to attend Cornell University's Summer College. I was just recently accepted into the program of Science. This summer I have the chance to join other students and learn about medicine and science in Cornell's very own labs and even visit local hospitals. I am really excited about this opportunity and can only imagine what this experience would be like.

Unfortunately, I probably can't attend. You see, my mom has raised myself and her other four kids all by herself. My "father" walked out on my family and I when I was very small. He has never been child support nor will he ever. We are barely making it and its really hard most of the time. However, I do manage to stay on top of my studies and pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. This has been a dream of mine since I was very very young. I remember asking Santa Claus for a lab coat and Band -Aid instead of a Barbie or other toys. I used to play pretend doctor on my brothers and I would spend hours keeping busy in my pretend E.R.

This is why I am so thrilled and appreciative that I have been accepted to attend this once in a lifetime program. I usually can't go on these trip or trips at all because of my family's extremely limited financial situation. I know I should be grateful to have even been offered this experience and I am, but I just hope I am able to attend as well.

I know I am asking complete strangers to help, but I really dont have anyone else to turn to. I cant express enough how much this experience would mean to me and how much I hope I am able to go. To be honest, I cant do much and I hope I dont have to face the fact that I still wont.

I really dont have anyone else to turn to and I am hoping someone is able to help me, even if it just a little. I wouldnt be so desperate if this was just one of those school trips, but to me this is really important and significant. I will get the chance to express my goal of helping others in the future and becoming the leader I want to be. This trip would mean so much to me.

I am forever grateful to all of you who have viewed my page and have taken the time to read a bit of my story. If you would like to learn more (believe there is alot!) please feel free to email me at I can answer any questions you may have. I actually feel a little selfish asking for this type of funding when there are other heartbreaking stories out there, but I hope you can understand a bit of who I am and who I plan to be and why this is so important to me.

Thank you all for your time and consideration

God Bless
