(BOSTON.CBSLOCAL) — LOWELL, Massachusetts – A Lowell teenager is hoping to help raise money for medical school in an unorthodox way – panhandling.
Eighteen-year-old Emily Stutz started an online fundraising page to help her raise money for her education. Stutz says she has not yet decided where she will attend school in the fall.
The senior wrote that while she has the academic credentials to study psychology on a pre-medical track, she does not have the finances to make it happen.
