This story starts with a young man who had ambitions to go to college, play on the Varsity Basketball Team, and hopefully make it to the NBA. He was a star on his high school team, scoring
3 pointers at will, the crowd chanting his name. "SILVA".
He decided to attend a college out of state in Massachusetts that required he apply for a student loan as he did not secure a scholorship to any other college. His first year at Dean College
(Franklin, MA) he did well in school with his grades, played sparingly on the college team and before you know it....the freshman year was over.
Now over $20,000 in debt after that first year and not being able to afford to continue going to that college, this young man did what many others had to do when finishing high school. Look for a job that is not paying him what he is really worth.
That student debt became harder and harder to keep up with the monthly bills, and before you know it....his dream of making it through 4 years of college let alone making it to the NBA are pretty much squashed.
So, this GoFundMe is set up to raise money to wipe out that student loan debt and to hopefully provide the extra income needed to get him back into college to allow him to finish reaching his dream.
