I was just looking for some help with my letter it is very important i get my financial aide back as it affects my future
Dear Office of Financial Aid,
My name is A------ P------ and I am writing to appeal my suspension from financial aid. On September 13, 2008, my best friend committed suicide. After this happened I completely fell apart. I could not do anything. I was terrified to be alone, I was scared of the dark, and I kept having panic attacks. I also missed two weeks of classes. The first week I just could not manage to make myself go. Then I flew up to New York for a week, even though the funeral service was private, because I really wanted to be with the rest of my friends. After missing so much class, I tried to come back and catch up but it was too difficult under the circumstances. So rather than let my GPA suffer I decided to withdraw from my classes. Ever since my friend passed away, I have been trying to put my life back together. Moving forward, knowing that he never will, has been the most difficult thing I have ever had to deal with. I lost sight of my dreams, and now im finally seeing clear again. I only have a handful of classes left until I receive my Associate of Arts degree because I did dual-enrollment. After I have finished with my AA degree, I plan to go to the Art Institute in Ft. Lauderdale for graphic design.
This upcoming semester I am confidant that I will be successful. I am moving in with my parents so that I can spend less time working and more time studying. I am also going to organize study time at the library so I will not be distracted. With all sincerity I'm asking that I am given another opportunity and I am not denied financial assistance. I will not be able to finish school without the help of financial aid. Thank you for your time and consideration.
