Who I Am
Plain and Simple, Bread and Butter
My name is Deryn LeDuke and I am a senior at a small, beautiful school nestled underneath the mountains of Colorado, in Golden.
I want to transfer myself into a small, beautiful university nestled in the mountains of British Columbia, in Squamish.
- I am determined to enter the medical career as a surgeon. This fundraiser jumpstarts that.
Long story short, I've wanted to be a doctor since I was six. When I think of helping people, I feel as if a weight has been taken from my chest, and the chance to implement my passion into a career has since driven me to medicine and consequently, to post-secondary education.
Penny For Your Thoughts?
Penny For Your Portrait?
I need 40,000 dollars to attend my first year of university, thanks to financial aid, this has been cut in half, to 20,000. Unfortunately, I still am struggling to pay for that, as well. All of the money will absolutely attend tuition to Quest University due to the fact that, honestly, I really want to go to this school.
As a student, I don't have a lot to give you as an individual. But, I can say with confidence that I can write, speak, draw, read, and knit. Parts of these will all be present in the perks one can recieve if they donate.
If, by the unfortunate event that I cannot reach my goal occurs, all the money already raised will attend Quest University as a component of my tuition.
One might ask, at this point, why should I help?
I want to change the world in my lifetime, and through university, I can begin. There is no doubt in my mind that I will make an effort to make a difference, stand up for social justice and empower human rights. I hope one, as a contributer, sees value in this, because this is what I am passionate about.
I realize that I'm asking for a lot, and this may seem overwhelming. As a child, I never asked for help, sitting alone in class, and studying and figuring problems out on my own. However, as I have gotten older, challenges have grown larger, more menacing. Now, I'm asking for help from my community, from you.
Can't Donate Financially?
If you don't want to donate fiscally, I humbly ask that you share this project, in any way you can.
- The perfect thing about the internet is, anyone can share this on facebook, tweet, blog, or comment about this video.
- The more information out there about my dreams, the better.
- Thank you.
