Unemployment is an issue in my country. Everything is overpriced, especially education. Due to this, I've been looking for online courses to supplement myself. Currently, I'm taking courses in Introduction to Music Business, Basic Spanish lessons & also Advanced Diploma in Nutrition & Food Diets.
If you wanna know why these are important to me, do keep reading.
Since I was a little girl, I've dreamed of having a successful music & arts career. As a young woman now, with inflation going on in my country, I finally get the opportunity to start in an amateur way. I uploaded a few comedy videos on YouTube as a start, & I've decided to join a local musicians' group that gives out gigs occasionally. It's not much, but as long as I get to do the things I love, I'm just gonna take it.
My Dying Heritage
I'm of Spanish descent (from Spain), but I live in Southeast Asia. No1 in my family wants to learn about our heritage nor do they care. I'm 1 of the only people in my family that cares. I didn't get the opportunity to study the Spanish language at a young age. In fact, I learned French before I discovered I was of Spanish descent.
Of course, Spanish is not the only language I wish to learn. I also wish to keep practicing French, & also study other languages like Tagalog as I didn't have the time to learn as a teenager.
I have always been the 1 people turn to regarding health advice. My sister is currently pregnant. She constantly seeks advice from me of the Dos & Don'ts. Even my mom turns to me for advice on health. I'd rather have the certificate & continue studying properly before passing on more advice. I also have some ideas on healthy types of food I wish to create that will help society.
I can't afford to pay for the certificates. The only way I'm currently making money now is that I'm selling off my old toys & clothes online. & that barely buys me lunch. The cheapest thing we can tick off 1st is actually the Advanced Diploma in Nutrition & the Introduction to the Music Business. They are only US$50 per certificate.
I would be grateful if you guys could help out.
To be honest, even if you don't give anything to me, I'd rather you help me fund my youngest brother.
My Brother's Dream
My brother is currently in hell. He's doing a course he doesn't even like. He's currently taking a Diploma in Engineering. He's in his 1st year & he hates every minute of it. As a young man of 18 years, he only wants to be able to go to wrestling school. He told me he doesn't even care if he's a jobber (wrestling fans know what this is), as long as he gets to wrestle.
He told me he can't wait for the course to end. The course takes 3 years of his life, if he chooses to continue. I'd rather do any crappy job to fund his dream, but the wrestling school costs a minimum of $200 per month. & as I mentioned earlier, unemployment in my country is a big issue. Also, I'm doing the 3 courses, so I am unable to afford the time.
My brother & I constantly suffer from depression due to our surroundings & what's happening in our lives. We have been unhappy for a long time. Now that I've taken a few steps to get us somewhere better, I just need a little help to keep going.
Once I saw my brother just sitting at a corner in his room, just staring into space. He confided that he's confused, why he's continuing to live through this even though he hates it. I told him I wish I could change it. He was annoyed, mad & upset that no1 in our family tried to help. All he wants is for someone to try. That's what I'm trying to do, just try. Even if this fails, at least I tried.
I don't mind if you give just a little, but I honestly think I'd rather we fund my brother's dream 1st.
I hope that in the end, I can move out of my country & afford a better lifestyle for me & my siblings. It would mean we could finally live. Thanks guys! :)
