Hello friends - To whoever might not know me, I'm Estelle, nicknamed Denmark by foreign friends cause.. I'm from Denmark.
For years, I have made empty promises of coming to L.A to visit my american buddies, for years I have had to drop my savings for the trip because an emergency came up -
1) Therapy (For anxiety and depression)
2) Helping parents out economically so they wouldnt lose our house
3) a lot of medicine bills
4) Now, moving out soon, needing to spare the very few dollaroos I have on saving up for a deposit (coincidentally, also set up a fundraiser for that)
Once I move out, I'll be living on minimum poor student wages, not really having any money for anything. So tl;dr I've given up on ever funding this trip entirely by myself. A couple of friends have told me that they are more than willing to help out with a flight so I can come over, so giving this a try!!
Right now I'm not sure about the date, as I'm not sure about my student exams. Only thing for sure is, it's sometime in july, till the start of august, this year or next year. I don't want to depend entirely on other people giving me this trip, so I'll do what I can to fund some of it myself. So the year this happens all depends on how successful this is gonna be..
And finally, a tiny breakdown of what's being saved up for here:
Flight will be about $1000, give and take and then $200 for food for myself and gifts for the amazing people who are willing to help out and finally making this happen.
