Dear Friends,

Italy has long held a special place in my heart, with its captivating language, sun-soaked piazzas, and the rich blend of history and modernity. In March, I'll be taking the plunge to make Italy my new home, integrating into its dynamic society through my work in coding. However, the transition comes with its challenges – substantial upfront expenses for rent, deposits, and agency fees.

This journey isn't just about embracing Italian culture; it's about constructing a new chapter that benefits both my immediate family in Argentina and me. The economic challenges back home, especially for my mother and brother, add a layer of urgency to my pursuit of stability abroad.

Additionally, Italy offers a sense of stability and safety that holds particular importance given the challenges in Argentina.

I considered securing a loan to ease this transition, but banks are hesitant to lend the amount needed, and even if they did, the exorbitant interest rates are a significant concern in the current financial climate.

I'm reaching out to raise $10,000, aiming to overcome these initial financial hurdles. In return for your support, I extend not only my sincere gratitude but also a commitment to pay it forward. Over the next three years, I'll direct funds to meaningful causes in both Italy and Argentina.

Your contribution, regardless of its size, is the practical support that propels me forward on this journey – a journey marked by potential, determination, pizza and coffee.

Finally, I kindly ask you to share this with your friends, family, and anyone who believes in the transformative power of community. Remember, grains of sand may be small individually, but together, they create magnificent beaches! Thank you for being a vital part of this journey!
