Ivelisse from Chicago, IL

Working and earning my associate's. I need to complete my studies.

I need books & course fees not covered by my grant. I'm almost done with my associate's and this will help me finish.


I am a 34 year old single mom who is trying to finish a bachelor's degree as social worker/psychologist. I am almost done with my associate's.

My goals are to get a job as a social worker in a school or with the government. I want to help children and low income families.

I need funds to pay for the college books not covered by my Pell grant and the remaining class fees.

Meeting this need will help me because as a single mom with a full time job and a child, I won't need to postpone semesters due to not having the income to pay. As of now I have a low income job.

Thank you for helping Ivelisse fund this need.
