Hey everyone, My name is Gianna and I am a graduate of Holy Name Convent Port-of-Spain trying to raise money to attend my dream college Howard University in August 2021!
Due to the unexpected passing of my mother in April 2021, things have been extremely difficult for my sister and I financially, as she was the bread winner in my family. I was granted a scholarship that lessened the cost of tuition but even with this aid, the tuition, housing and meal plan costs are still expensive.
This year has been the hardest on both myself and my family, dealing with the loss of my mom whilst being in a pandemic, and it would be my absolute dream to attend this university and continue to make her proud. A week before she passed away we found out that I had gotten accepted into Howard and she cried tears of joy. She said that this huge accomplishment gave her even more reason to fight, unfortunately she did not win that battle but I would do anything in my power to make her proud and achieve everything I set my mind on. I knew how much it meant to her for me to go to Howard, so with the help of you all, this investment in me will not go in vain. No amount is too small, everything counts and I do appreciate every single one of you that have read this message and got to see a piece of my life.
Thank you so much!
