My first attempt at school was awful. I come from nothing and I had to support my family. I couldn't give school the attention needed and as a result my grades suffered. M.A.TC. suspended my financial aid eligibility. I was raised in the community the highest incarceration rate in the country and I struggle every day to beat the odds. I am being asked to pay for school out of pocket. For those of you that attended college you understand that it's a hell of a lot of money come up with. I am just asking for another chance to get my life back on track and I need M.A.T.C. to lift the block of my Financial aid eligibility. Please sign my petition and help me prove that I have what it takes to contribute to society in a positive way and complete school. Thank you all.
