Hello, I am Andy and I'am a 19 year old that just graduated from high school on 2019. I'm a very talented teenager in both sports and arts, and self-taught languages; my parents and young brother are one of the things in life I really, really care about, so I always try to make them proud of me. They're so important to me I try to help all I can in this situation, both financially and morally.
So, I'm adressing a matter that involves me and all my family.
Since last year, unexpected and various circumstances ravaged my family in a terrible way, and because of that, we've been struggling for now in this month, a year. Financially mainly, as you can expect.
There are various issues we need to resolve, but one of the main problems for us are surgeries for me and my brother, get our tonsils removed; and our education as they young ones of the family. It's been a year since I stopped studying and focusing on work selling drawings and making designs as a freelancer, so by this way I can help to pay the bills, but it's just not enough to help pay my brother's school and for me, even have an opportunity to go to university.
We're already having problems with the school and my brother is just so young to stop studying already, he's at elementary school and he's a 10 year old. As for me, I just turned 19 but I've been working on informal jobs, as I live in a third world country, the wage is precarious even if you have a major.
I am truly discouraged to even keep going as things just worse as time passes by, but I know I have to do it for my family and my own self. So I'm reaching out to you so tell my story, and work for a change in our still young lives. I'm trying my best but I always feel it's just not enough to really help my parents.
Your help would mean the world for me and I'd appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, to help us get out of this seemingly unending, dark hole. And it'd be an honor to be the first person of my family to ever go to an university,
Thank you for reading and I appreciate your time too. You'll definitely make a change for a family and young ones, one that will highly impact their future and their decisions in life; and we, will always have in mind the ones who helped us achieve our dreams and an opportunity to have a life, to try to help others too in the future and make this place a better world for everyone.
