Maqueisha from Staten Island, New York

I'm at college on scholarship, but it only covers living costs. I need to buy books!

My rugby scholarship covers room and board, but I need help to buy books as I study Business Management. I want to keep up a good GPA in school!


I am a 20-year old college student. I am currently a sophomore student at LIU Post, Long Island Campus. I have received an athletic scholarship for a Division 1 Rugby team. The scholarship only covers room and board.

My goal is to receive 3.0 GPA as I am studying Business Management. Upon graduating from college, I would like to pursue a career as a business owner.

I need assistance in purchasing my textbooks for the upcoming school year, Fall 2019 - Spring 2020.

Meeting this need will help me to complete my classwork assignments, in addition it will assist me with covering some of my educational expenses.
