My name is Christoffer Jakobsen and I am seventeen years old. I am a junior in highschool and I go to a school called Space of Mind in Delray Beach. My primary goal in life is that I plan to go to a 4 year college and play college basketball after Space of Mind. By the time I’m done with college my dream is to get a chance to play in the NBA and I believe I can do it.
With enough hard work and determination I will accomplish that goal. I started going to Space of Mind last year and I have really enjoyed my time here. I came to this school because when I was at my last school, I received bad grades because the public school system isn’t the best learning environment for me. I also wasn’t getting the help I needed to improve my grades which was affecting my possibilities.
That all changed when I transferred to Space of Mind, I felt like I was finally getting the help I needed from the academic coaches who are very supportive and helped me to develop my own strategies to learn best. I finally feel like I’m actually learning something new everyday for the first time in my life. The reason I am starting this fundraiser is because me and my family needs help to pay for my time here at Space of Mind. I need you to help me accomplish my goals. If you do end up helping I’ll be able to stay in school and continue on my path. Thank you.
