Hi, I'm Melissa from Costa Rica!
My name is Melissa Mata, I am currently studying with scholarships in:
- Software development engineering at the University of Costa Rica
- Design of User Experience in Strategic Design and Innovation - Costa Rica
During my adolescence I was a victim of sexual abuse, which affected me personally. For this reason, I want to create a digital platform in my country, where people are informed about the issue of sexual abuse, know how to present complaints, receive support and can rejoin a dignified and happy life.
For this I want to put into practice my knowledge in programming and user experience, and be able to provide a solution that helps other people like me, to empower themselves.
I also want to offer free workshops on Arts, Literature, Programming, Photography, Design ... among others to help people whose past were victims of sexual abuse to get distracted.
It is for this reason that I need to buy a new computer where I can develop the website of my project and also the mobile applications for iOS and Android.
The computer that I need to buy is a MacBook. Sadly, I am a person with limited financial resources and I do not have enough money to buy a computer, because the one I currently have is damaged.
I know there are good-hearted people who can help me make my initiative come true soon.
