Hello friends, hope you all are doing well.
Here I am in a difficult situation. Let me teel you about myself, my name is Marco, I am 24 years old and I'm from El Salvador, Central America. By the time I'm writing this, I'm almost done with this year's (2015) second university semester. I'm studiying to become a journalist and photojournalist. I have worked for most of the time I have been in the university to cover my own expenses, because my mom used to work with a salary of $300 per month, which just covered the expenses of the house and the food for my brothers and I (we are 4 brothers in total), she's currently unemployed. I never had the help of my father. They are separated long time.
Two months ago I lost my job because the enterprise broke, I was working for a bilingual call center, 10 hours a day for $300 bucks per month. Luckily, I had some savings to cover my university's monthly payment (90 per month) till the end of this year and personal expenses such as bus ticket, food, homework, etc.
The reason I'm asking you friends for help, is because next year is my senior year of my career and I don't have the funds to continue with my studies and to cover the graduation costs and necessary extra expenses such as the ones I mentioned above. Also I would use your help to buy a laptop, wich is a tool that I really need to keep my photos and do homework, because some guys robbed mine. As most of you know, my country is a very dangerous contry to live in, because of the gangs, and violence we are currently going through, and because of the unemployment rates we have. Also, your help will be applied to help my mother to carry with the house expenses. These are hard times in my land and hopefully you can help me to get back on my feet.
I've been looking for a job since I lost it, but I just haven't got one yet. With your help, I will be able to cover the first 2016 university semester and the extra expenses I mentioned. Hopefully during that time I can find a job and finally be able to deal with all I mentioned by myself.
The semester starts on January the 18th, but I have until the 23rd to enroll.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your time and help, I'm very sure that life will smile to all of you friends. Blessings.
