I'm Alex. I’m Chinese and from Malaysia, but I can't read or speak Chinese.
I’ve never been one to take a step forward. I was raised in a passive family that only acts when its necessary.
These past few months I’ve really taken initiative though!! I work odd jobs to support myself. I've finally got the financial support I need to begin life on my own. But by my college's estimations it isn't enough. I only had enough to start but not to see it through to the end
I'm taking what people might call a leap of faith. Some people from where I’m from might call it a “foolish endeavor”. My own family sees my efforts as pointless and useless.
My dream is to move to Japan, and I've found a way to do this. This is my first selfish step in life and the start of something new.
I don't know what's ahead, but I do know, good or bad, it is now my choice. It’s something I want!
I would love for all your support to help me get to my dream!
