I am a philosophy and english translation (double bachelor, one for the soul the other for an actual job later on) student from Maribor, Slovenia, currently on Erasmus exchange in Lisbon.
The aim of this campaign is to obtain some money to, essentially, gain some independance, move out of my parents' house and stop being a burden on them. Irregular schedules and up to 9 courses per semestre at my faculty make it difficult to find even a part-time job and still attend classes or pass them with reasonable grades, and 2-3 months of a summer job do not cover the remaining 9-10 months of studies.
I am also ridiculously optimistic, and would be really happy if I could collect enough money not only for me, but to be occasionally able to assist others struggling to get by in the student life.
So I hope this brief but sincere description finds a place somewhere in your heart and lands a couple of cents in my account.
