Michele's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped fund the start up of my therapy practice and will provide me with the tools I need to help others.

Michele's story

Hello, my name is Michele. I am 44 years old, a single mother to two boys. I am currently enrolled at HMI University in Tarzana California. I have since been certified as a master hypnotist through the union local 472. I will go on to receive my clinical hypnotherapy certification in November. I have just experienced a life-changing transformation myself, and want to help humanity gain the skills and tools to also receive life-changing transformations. That is why I began my studies here at HMI University. The last eight years of my life have been really rough. In 2014, I was in a major car accident. My hand was detached and I was left in the hospital for a year undergoing over nine surgeries and rehabilitation to learn how to walk and talk again. At that time my mother got guardianship of my three children because I was unable to care for them. In 2016 I have diagnosed with stage three breast cancer and I was hospitalized in the middle of my chemotherapy treatment with a severe infection. In 2017 I received a phone call letting me know my 16-year-old daughter violet was killed in an alcohol-related car crash. Which led me down the path of drugs and alcohol completely alone and medicating with anything. I experienced a lot of trauma, abuse, exploitation, and pain while I was on this path. Finally, I had enough courage on May 23, 2020, when I checked myself into Hemet valley imaging I’ve re-center. In the four months, I received hypnotherapy that transformed my life in such a miraculous way. This is why I wanted to pursue a career in hypnotherapy to help people just like me. I am asking for a loan to start up my therapy practice.
