Want to help a Black honors student stay in school?

black-candy:

I’m pretty much screwed and can’t register for classes and probably won’t be able do it until August (fall semester starts September). I’m on a scholarship and I have grants that pay for my tuition, but I had to get a loan for housing, and it doesn’t cover all of it. I need $1,000, and if I’m not registered for classes I could lose my scholarship, which means I won’t be back.
This year has been the most productive and greatest year I’ve ever had. I moved from the Bay Area to Chicago, terrified out of my mind. I was left wondering where and if I could fit in as a hard of hearing, queer, black feminist. Months later, I had become co-president of the feminist organization on campus, produced the Vagina Monologues, and made the Dean’s List with a 3.75 gpa. I did more than I ever thought I would do and it’s only the start of things for me. I’m proud to have a presence on my campus, and I would like to continue to have one. My support system is on this campus and in this city - I honestly can’t say how my life may turn out if I have to leave.
So, with that said, donations are greatly appreciated. Anything would do.You would be supporting a black feminist who is a honors student and worked very hard to get where she is today.
