In order for me to attend my dream college, I need to raise $17,000. I only ask for 17,000 people to sponsor one dollar to contribute to this campaign.

My name is Marquise Cornish and I am a senior at Mastery Charter School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To me, an opportunity is earned, not given. Recently I was accepted into my dream school, Xavier University. I'm really excited about the opportunity but college, as I'm sure you already know, is very expensive and even after financial aid and applying to numerous scholarships I still have a gap of $17,000. I am a product of the foster care system since the age of 16, which makes me an independent student according to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This makes it very difficult to clear the gap of $17,000 all by myself. If this gap is fulfilled, I VOW to give my all to helping other foster care children chasing their dreams. All I ask is for an ear and some patience to have an open mind to help make my dream a reality.  I will make a college degree happen!! I will further my education!! Thank you for believing in me!!
