Hello my name is Katarina. I am a newly graduated nurse and I have 3 children and guardianship of my 70 year old grandmother. MY debt to income ratio right now is extremely overwhelming and it is extremly hard to keep up with all of my bills with one income. I do not recieve state assistance and sometimes I can barely get food in the house. I thought that after I graduated all of my problems would be solved but becuase I am a new nurse my wages are not that high and I have a lot of debt that it seems impossible to climb out of. I am stuggling to make decisions between paying my light bill and giving my family a thanksgiving meal. I have always been the type of person to want to help and give to the homeless and those less fortunate. I have volunteered with Project Dignity homeless workers and with Focus Hope. It really breaks my heart that I now stand in the need of assistance. In am told that once I at least have a year of nursing experience I would qualify for more money and once I return to school and complete my secondary degree I should be able to truly climb out of debt and provide for my family. Once I am able to restore balance with my bills and fincances I plan to pay it forward and also help as many families in need as I can. If anyone can help me this year my family and I would be eternally greatful and I promise your good deeds will not go in vein! God bless you all!!!
