help pixel pay for college :boost_requested: 

hello friends

I just got my final bill for my last year of college. $17,200. I only get about $2,000 in loans. That still leaves $15,200.

I currently live with my transphobic parents and cannot sustain living here after school. I've paid for all of my schooling through working up to five jobs at a time up to now, but with each year that passes by, the school has been rolling back my financial aid and it has been very difficult to keep up. I'm still living on a meal a day.

If you'd be willing to toss coin to a neurodivergent, queer, trans, east/southeast asian person, my handles are below.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me thus far.

Howdy folx, here's a / !

I'm an engineering and environmental studies student.

I'm passionate about accessibility
My hobbies consist of computational history, cultural memory work, beading, and mushrooms. Sometimes I do digital art and graphic design.

I am , , , and Burmese Chinese.

FWD Environmental policy News 

"Huge news: Senators Manchin and Schumer just WITHDREW the permitting deal that would have forced approval of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, and gutted our bedrock environmental laws!! This is a huge win and something that most people did not think was possible just a few weeks ago. Truly amazing โ€“ thank you everyone for working so hard on this.

Because there werenโ€™t enough votes to move forward, Manchin had no choice but to pull his own bill from the floor.

The fight is not quite over yet. The dirty deal could be attached to another in the coming weeks or months. We need to stay vigilant to stop the dirty deal once and for all. "

If you represent an organization, or can share this with any groups you're connected with, please take a moment to support this.

US student loans, my great lakes and other servicers 

If you made payments during the pandemic, you may qualify for both a refund and loan cancellation.

For my great lakes loans, the refund will now be automatically reimbursed along with the loan cancellation. (I just called them)

Call your loan servicer to see if you need to request for a refund process.

the refund is for payments during the pandemic, while the loan cancellation applies to the current balance of your account

Hey y'all, could you help support the Yappie (AAPI political news, my friend helped found it and it's come so far) and the SEAD project (southeast Asian community org in the Minnesota area) on the Gold Futures challenge? They're both finalists (you can vote for three!)
