Greetings my name is Angelica Weary aka Angel from Milwaukee, WI. As a child I had a desire to become a Pediatrician. Since my childhood years I have continued to worked towards that goal. I attended Rufus King High School in Milwaukee, WI graduated top of my class. After high school I went on to continue my education at Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. I worked hard as a biology pre-med major and graduated on the Deans list and received a Bachelors Degree in Biology. Currently I live in Atlanta, Ga, doing clinical rotations while attending the University of Health Sciences, St Kitts. I'm also pursuing a Public Health Masters degree at Walden University.
I will be entering into my last and final year of both programs (if I'm able to register next month). Unfortunately as of now I am unable to continue my medical degree because of financial reasons. My tuition is $13,000 every 16 weeks and I have exhausted all measures to try retrieve funds from the school and loan program. My school has a new private loan program through Sallie Mae which will cover my tuition and living expenses but I have applied 10 times with different co-signers and have been denied each time. Although it has been a struggle, I'm proud to say I've made it to my last year of medical school while maintaing a 3.7 GPA. At this time I would like to know if you can advise me as to where I can go or who I can possible speak with who can assist me financially to help pay my last year of school so I can graduate next year.
Being the first in my family to attend and graduate from college and the first in my family to continue on to professional school, it has not been easy financially, however I have truly Blessed and don't take any of this for granted.So PLEASE keep our family in your prayers. I am in desperate need of help and I will truly appreciate any donations you my have to offer. No donation is too small or too large. :)
