Egypt from Chicago, IL

I was recently laid off. One payment will allow me to complete my GED!

My biggest Christmas wish is to be able to cover one payment which will enable me to earn my GED and move toward a new career!



I am 29 years old, working on getting my life in order. My goal is to receive my high school diploma with Penn Foster (online high school) so I can then go to college. I currently have a 4.0 GPA.

My goals are, once completing my high school diploma, I hope to attend college for screenwriting at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, California. I have family in LA who will allow me to stay with them as I finish my degree. I hope to get my Bachelors degree in their 3 year program.

I need assistance with a past-due payment, due to loss of employment in August 2016, which will allow me to finish my high school diploma. I also need computer software for professional screenwriting.

Meeting this need will help me because I'll be able to obtain my high school diploma, and I'll be able to continue paying the monthly fee of $40 for Penn Foster once this current fee is paid. The computer software, Final Draft 10, will help me pursue my studies in screenwriting after I complete my high school diploma. Thank you to whomever can help - this is my biggest Christmas wish!

Validated by Jackie from Chicago Lights: Elam Davies Social Service Center (What does this mean?)

Egypt has been coming to the Social Service Center for about three years. We recently spoke about his interest in completing his high school degree and going on to college for screenwriting. Egypt is very passionate about his studies and is ready to complete his degree as soon as he makes a past-due payment. He's also very excited to pursue screenwriting, but needs the proper software to put his ideas into the correct format and template. Thank you in advance for helping Egypt out!
