My name is Maria Imelda Roque Rivera. I have overcome many obstacles in my lifetime. I have overcome bullying, paying pay tp participate fees at school, and sexual abuse. I am a fighter. I never give up. I am a high school senior and like many high school seniors I cannot afford to go to college. My family cannot help me and the government will not. I wish I was given the opportunity to go to college. I could show you what I could do to change the world.
This campaign and going to college is very important to me for many reasons. My family lives in a trailer and my parents work like dogs to try to give me and my siblings a better life. I would like to give back to them. Also when I graduate high school this coming year I will be the first in my family. To me that is a very big deal. And if I go to college I will be the first in my family to go. I want to be a role model to mexicans I want to show them that there is a better life for all of us if we try and never give up.
I have so many goals to achieve and I will never give up, I do not care if I am an old lady when I achieve them but I will. I want to start a non profit organization for children who need clothes and start a scholarship for people in my position. I want to help anyone who needs it and I will do that by making clothes, because what I want to become is a fashion designer.
If you help me the only thing I can give you is a thank you letter, drawings of whatever it is you want, doilies, and if there is a cause that you are passionate about like Relay for Life and March of Dimes I will help you in any way I can. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am sorry that I cannot give you anything else.Please understand I cannot give you money I will however help in anyway I can.
All of the money will go to my college tuition, room and board, and books. I really want to do something with my life .All I need is your help to get to my dream college. I just need your help.
Even if you cannot help just by telling your friends or co-workers, church members, anyone. It would help so much. Please tell anyone you can.
If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me at email@example.com. Even just a little help will make the difference.
Thank you for your time,
Maria Imelda Roque Rivera
