College and More

Hello,
My name is Adam.  I am 23 years old.  I  am still living with my parents.  I've attended Des Moines Area community college for two years, earning an associates degree in Information Technology Network Administration and attended Iowa State University for a few years as well.  Due to a recent a recent job loss, my dad's job took us to Indiana, and I came along with as I do not have the cash to support myself on my own yet.  This did not let me complete my bachelors degree at Iowa State University.  However, due to a recent family illness (cancer), this led us to being in Indiana earlier than what we planned.  I am starting to look for a job, but it is tough, especially with no job experience and very little people you can use as references.  I am also just learning how to drive and have a fear of driving.  This also makes it hard to get a job as well.  As I am looking for a job, any extra help for paying off my loans is definetly appreciated.  Even if the help is with a job, advice, or a little help with money, all the help is greatly appreciated and I will return the favor.  You can visit my website at https://sites.google.com/site/adamglassner/ and find ways to contact me there or you can contact me through gofundme.
Thank you for reading,
Adam
