    Dear God, Jesus Christ, the Lord, Holy Spirit, and through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, through the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, through the intercession of St. Jude, and through the intercession of my angels and guardian angels:

    My name is Helen and I am from Lanham, Maryland, USA. I currently attend the University of Maryland-Baltimore County and they do not have my academic major which is broadcast journalism and I do not fit in the school. I am unhappy in the school, nobody in the school does not know me at all except for my name, I have no friends in the school, my needs are not being meet in the school, and with the school overall. I am not getting help in journalism in the school, I am not learning anything from the school to become a journalist, they do not have any classes in journalism, they are not helping me find internships opportunities, employment opportunities, and extracurricular activities in journalism, I have to do that on my own. The University of Maryland-Baltimore County is just wasting my time. I will not and cannot settle for less and I will not and cannot give up on my dream which is to attend journalism school (J-School) for undergraduate to get my baccalaureate degree (bachelor degree) in broadcast journalism and political science and become a journalist. It is my dream to become a journalist. I am intending to transfer to another university. I have created a list of criteria that I want in a university for undergrad that is right for me and that is able to fulfill all of the needs that I have listed. I will most likely apply for universities for undergraduate transfer admissions for fall 2012, but I do not know where to go and I do not know which school is right, good, best, and perfect for me. If I do not find nor get accept to the university that is right for me and has the journalism program that I want and meets my needs by August 2011, my parents are going to force me to stay at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. I want to obtain a very good grade point average for me transfer to another university. I am had already repeated a course for the Fall 2011 semester to make up for academic credits which was successful and I earn the credit for the course. I want to do well in my academic class and cut off all distractions including extracurricular activities. I am primarily and solely focus on my academics and my studies and making good grades. Lord, and through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, through the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, through the intercession of St. Jude, and through the intercession of my angels and guardian angels, please guide me to the university for undergraduate that is the right, the good, the best, and the perfect fit for me whether it is the University of Maryland-College Park or another university in the United States of America, let it be done if it so and if it is to be in His will.

I really miss the University of Maryland-College Park and I think about UMCP/UMD all of the time. I want to attend the University of Maryland-College Park and enroll there as an undergraduate student majoring in Broadcast Journalism, Government & Politics, and another journalism major (multi-platform journalism) either Print Journalism or Digital/Online Journalism. (I want to earn and obtain my baccalaureate degree-bachelor degree in more than two academic areas of study). I want to minor in either History or International Affairs (International Relations- if the minor is offered at the University of Maryland-College Park). I imagine myself at the University of Maryland-College Park and I really see myself there. University of Maryland-College Park, I want you, I adore you, and I like you. I want to be a Terrapin (a “Terp”) for life and forever. Overall, I love the University of Maryland-College Park, I have grown to love the university and be accustomed with it. I still want the University of Maryland-College Park and I want to be a part of the school. I still want to be part of the University of Maryland-College Park’s journalism program as well as enroll as an undergraduate student there in the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism. Let it be done if it so and if it is to be in His will. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

I know my journey would be blest. Continue to be with me, St. Jude, as the obstacles in my path are greater than I can overcome alone. Pray for my success in these upcoming exams. I need your intercession, your prayers, and your love. God is great and you have been so kind to me all my life. Please help me now I ask you. I will be ever mindful of this favor, as the others, and continue to tell others around me of your miracles in my life.
