Saidu from Staten Island, New York

I'm in school for Business Administration; I can't afford textbooks on my own.

I want to work in real estate and give back to my community. I need help to buy textbooks; I had to take out a student loan just to go to school.


I am a 19-year-old college student, I am currently a sophomore at The Borough of Manhattan Community College. I am majoring in Business Administration and I expect to graduate by December 2020.

My future goals are to have my own business and to work for a real estate company. I am focused on passing all of my classes and making the Dean's List. I would like to help people who are having financial problems and in addition I would like to give back to my community.

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

Meeting this need will help me because I am not receiving any type of financial aid and I had to apply for a student loan to cover the cost of my tuition. It will assist me with covering some of my educational expenses and to have the required materials for my classes. .
