hello my name is Emilia I'm 15 years old and my dream is to get to study abroad for a year.
First of all I would like to explain why I would like to go to america to study for a year. I have always found the american culture fascinating and exciting in some kind of way. I would like to experience something new in my life for once. I have lived in a very very small town all my life, a town where everyone knows everyone and a place where you cant escape your mistakes...
I have dealt with a lot of mental issues my whole life such as depression self harm etc. my "friends" of course noticed that as well and started to distance themselves from me as they didn't know what was happening to me, so I was left alone. No one really wanted any contact with me and it was all hell. I still to this day don't feel very well in my class sometimes and going to america would be my escape from it all.
To the actual point this whole trip was all planned out and everything was well, we had all the money we needed. I work a job to afford the part I need to pay and my parents work their asses off to be able to let me live my dream. Recently something happened, my dad got injured very badly and is not able to work, he works as a carpenter and he has torn his Achilles' tendon and now he also has a coronary in his leg (I think thats what its called) which is only worse. He isn't able to work until April next year and all the money has to be paid in june. My dad makes most of our income, so him not being able to work and make money has changed a lot but I'm sure we're gonna make it.
I personally have to make 20k danish kroner to money for myself on the trip i have 11k so far. I work a job which I make 600-900 kr a month. I am also in my last grade of school which means I have all my important finals coming up in may next year which only makes things more stressful.
So all I am asking is for people to donate a little it doesn't have to be a lot, a little might be lot to others. Im only asking for 1500 kr here you might think it is a small amount of money seeing as i still need to make 9k but those 1500 will make a big difference for me.
Please consider donating or just sharing this, it would mean the world to me if this worked out!
