2018 was a very rough year. I became very ill and was fired because I had to put my health and well-being first. My mom passed away in September 2018. One of her biggest goals for 2019 was to attend my graduation from Johns Hopkins University. Because I lost my job, I don't have the funds to travel to Baltimore for graduation. I'm planning to use the funds donated through this page to attend graduation and walk in honor of my mom.
