University and housing costs

Cicero, San Diego

I am currently a business student at a University in San Diego, California. My tuition has become hard to pay and most of my money goes to the University and to my housing expenses. Things have not been easy and all I need is some help so that not only will I be able to cope with all this costs but also realize a dream of opening my own small business. With some help I will have that money to get my small business up and running and I will be able to put in practice what I am learning at school. Last year was thought for me. My father died and since then I've been struggling to just get by. My mom has to take care of my younger brother who is only 15 and I feel awful having her send me 1000 dollars every month that she cannot afford and it doesn't always cover all I need. Since my dad died I sold my car, many of my personal items at home just to raise some cash to get me through a few months. But now Im growing desperate on what to do. And thats how I searched and found this place. My school schedule keeps me busy all week and I am also working at the library every day to get a little discount on my tuition and the time at the library allows me to get my studies done as well. I have a student loan that allows me to pay as little as just 350 per month, my rent is about 500. The remaining 150 goes to monthly bus tickets, food, electricity and my home phone bill. But I need help. Please. I don't know what else to say. I need help. And one day when I am graduated, with a job, a career, with perhaps my own business being very successful I will return this favor to someone else who needs help going through school as well. Thanks,
