My friend will be raising money for me because im not certain if it's legal to do this in Turkey.
My name is Büşra but i prefer to use Kaya that's how all my friends call me. I'm 21 and I'm currently studying International relations in Turkey. I've always wanted to make a change in our world that's why i chose to study International relations. I've always wanted to explore the world and learn from different cultures but as a middle eastern specifically turkish citizen It was always hard for me to do that because as a Turkish citizen we need visa for visiting most of the countries especially Europe even if it's for a day . And when you apply for a visa they ask you how much money you have because they want to know if you're gonna be able to pay for everything during your visit that's why it's so hard because I've heard that some people couldnt even get visas even if they had 3000€ in their bank account that's how cruel world's system is. That's why I've never been outside of Turkey in my life but even when i was 7 i always knew i never wanted to live in Turkey i wanted to live abroad it was always fascinating. When i was about to start university I was dreaming of studying abroad but that was never gonna happen because my parents are both disabled and they can't even support me financially in Turkey. Now I still have hope for my masters degree. I've always been a hopeful person.
In January 2019 I've been accepted to an exchange program named erasmus and They gave me the chance to stay in Europe for a semester and I'm so thankful for that because finally I have the chance to explore europe and live outside of Turkey for a bit. I'm always looking for ways to live abroad. That's the dream.
You may ask why don't i get a job and pay for my things but let me explain that too. Turkey's youth unemployment rate is %25.20 and even if you finish university it's not guaranteed that you'll find a job. I'm afraid if i won't be able to pay erasmus expenses and i will have to turn it down because I'm already struggling so much with basic living expenses. So that's why I need your help if you can spare a change to help me achieve my dreams and/or share this with others I'll forever be thankful for you.
Usage of donations:
The money i raise will be spent on Travel Expenses like ticket, visa, passport, Accommodation for the time i stay in Poland, Living expenses and School supplies. If i raise more than i need for that i will get to achieve my goal and explore some europe cities and use the money to start my masters degree when i graduate.
