Cambria's College Assistance
Organized by: Cambria Sharp
My name is Cambria Sharp. I am freshman at the University of Indianapolis, which is a private institution. The tuition for me this academic year is 38,000 a year. I am majoring in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. I hope to work with women and children who have been victims of physical abuse, sex trafficking, and mental abuse. I hope to help these woman and girls find stable homes, education options, and work. I was blessed enough to have most of my tuition covered by scholarships, grants, and federal money. Although I was blessed enough to receive the awarded money to assist with my schooling. However, I still need 5,000.00 to cover the unpaid balances of tuition,books,my meal plan & housing which due by November for me to even be able to register for a second semester of classes and continue my education at U-Indy. I would like to raise the money by October 31,2015 . I work full time at a local pancake house as a server but my tips aren't gonna be enough to cover these expenses by the set date . My mother who is a single-parent helps to the best of her ability but she has another child who is 12. Who has some health complications and of course living expenses. My father passed in 2010 , of kidney failure I came home from school and found him on our living room floor. My dad was my best friend and my biggest supporter. Despite that traumatic event , I've still managed to strive and pursue my dreams. I graduated from high school with a 3.5 GPA. I was the captain of the dance team, was one of the lead photographers for the school news paper and website, and the anchor and reporter for the school television station. Before I can register for my next semester of classes I have to pay this outstanding balance. One thing I promised my father , is that I would put my education first. It would break my heart to not keep that promise. Not to mention the goals I have set for myself. So I really don't want strike out before I really make it into the major games. So I'm hoping someone can help me, even if its just a few dollars any donation can help. My goal is 5,000 dollars of course I am grateful for anything that puts me any closer to that goal is a tremendous help.
