Hello guys, my name is Matisho. So about the title, we're going to talk about that soon enough but first. I was born and raised in Tanzania a country in East Africa, I'm sorry if I might bore you at first with the long memory lane but I feel like my point will be well understood if I start from the very beginning and don't worry I'm only 18 so it's not going to be that long
I was born in a family of six kids and I happen to be the last one, unlike the rest of my siblings whose age difference is at maximum 3 years, the age gape between me and my brother whom I'm born after is 9 years. So that made me grow up away from their domain. Thanks to the high growth of science and technology in our time I was able to learn so much from the internet, through different TV shows e.t.c
Ever since a young boy I had always admired my older brother's drawings which inspired me to start drawing at a very young age, my art kept growing over the years till now I can say I'm at a nearly professional stage. But apart from art I have always been in love with machines and technology which led me to fall in love with physics and maths during my high school career.
As the journey of growing up drawing continued I came to put interest in something else that occurred so interesting to me, MUSIC. I became so much in love with music to the point that I wanted to make it myself and that's what jump started my music career as a rapper, singer and producer. I make beats up to this point (mainly trap beats and rnb mix trap beat I think) and I still sing and rap. My music skills are as good as my drawing skills I can say since I've been pushing them forward all at once
Due to family instability over the years it later led to a tone of financial problems which put my studying journey at risk, currently I have graduated junior high school, you can call it (since it's different in my country we don't have junior high school) and I can choose to go to senior high school or just take another path through college and take a diploma course then after the diploma I can go for a degree which is the choice I'd go for.
My love for music then managed to convince me that I could be more and do more with my passion. So I looked for a college where they'd teach me sound engineering and be more than just a regular artist. Thankfully I found the college in Kenya but unfortunately the college costs were too high and my family just couldn't afford it. It placed me in a very difficult situation at first not knowing what to do, nowhere to ask for help. But after some time I got over the stress, I regained my brain strength so I started thinking straight and something else came up.
As I mentioned earlier, I've always been in love with technology and computers and machines, metal stuff, fixing, messing with them, you guys get the point. So after realizing that I couldn't get money for the sound engineering course, something else came in my head so I decided to pick a more world changing course, COMPUTER SCIENCE.
So as I keep growing I keep on realizing that I have potential, I can do stuff and I can do more for the world in shaping a better future for next generations. So I picked the course because I figured our world now is at the verge of a technological advancement so the easiest way to affect it is via technology itself.
I'm not planning on abandoning my other carriers because I believe everyone has a hobby or hobbies and it's just a matter of choosing to embrace them or not, so I choose to embrace mine to the extent. But still my main focus will be on my goals for the future (which are aimed at creating a better future for future generations) through technology. I know it's a lot to handle but I believe I can do it
It would be so great to see my dreams come to life someday, but I can't move on without money for the college fees and later for the university fees and unfortunately my family is in no position to help out with such amounts. It's really stressful to think of not reaching my goals and that's what motivated me to come and ask for help from anyone who might feel touched by my life's story and wants to help or is just curious to see where this is going to lead and is in a position to offer help
I'd really really be grateful to anyone who'd contribute to my success of seeing my dreams a reality
So I'm asking you guys to help me see this through, anything you contribute means a lot to me and takes me one step further to reaching my goals
We only get a one time chance to make our decisions in life so we have to use the opportunity wisely
