Hello everyone, my name is Maria.
I'm 18 years old and I think this is my last hope. Please don't doubt my request just because I'm young and you think I may be using the money the wrong way. There's actually a lot of adolescents who may be in this type of position where they can't afford and wish themselves a better and bright future, and that's why I am here, today, now, asking for your help. Since I'm really young some people may think that in such a young age why don't you search for a job easily and earn money. But here again I'll deny it immediately. Here's why... I didn't graduate from school and left at the age of 16. After that I tried so many \"courses\" (kind of like a school but cheaper and it takes small time to graduate, you just learn the important things in a job and there's no many subjects like at school) that will eventually release me a diplomacy but I failed miserably, making my mother waste money for nothing. Why? I think none of those weren't made for me, I didn't really know what I wanted for my future (I was having a hard time with some bullies at my school so I was feeling depressed) and didn't realised that my hobbies were actually my ideal job. As of now I know what my dream job is: I want to study cosmetology. I live with my 2 younger sisters (6&16) and my Mother. My mom is the only one source of income in my family (and is not even that much tbh but we still make it). As I am the older, you don't know how frustrated and useless I feel for not bringing not even a cent in my home. Staying at home all day not doing anything. We live in a very small town and trust me I tried everything I could find here, even babysitting but nothing. So feeling discouraged I even thought of selling my body online... but luckily I decided to not. In this last period with the COVID-19 outbreak my mother became a victim of it in December so she had to stop working and we all quarantined ourselves till January. We lived with the savings she had thanks god or I don't know what else will happen to us. She started working not long time ago so we're still late on some bills. My wish and my dream is to move out to the country's capital city to study in the best cosmetology and fashion school. This time I really believe in my self and my skills that I can make it! It's a big accomplishment for me already knowing what I want my future to look like. I want myself and my family to feel proud about me honestly after all we been through. Money is indispensable for this journey, you have to start from somewhere or with something and it is a luxurious thing for me. I tried searching for a bank to borrow money from but nothing for my case and I'm so desperate at this point. I will need money for travelling, a small place where to live (deposit apartment) and the bills, the food for the first month, school... indispensable things. Of course as soon as I arrive I will be searching for a part time job. And as of last I want to give some money to my mother to thank her for everything she has done for all my family and to continue to pay the remaining bills and continue support my two sisters in the best way. Even if you decide not to support my project wish that's it's okay, but I want to let you know that even if you contribute with a small amount of money, know that you will make an ambitious girl full of hope and dreams very happy, making her an independent woman. I think in this world there will be genuine people that cares for the future of the youth willing to give a help. Please, help me to move out within the end of March. Thank you, I will never forget your help. And if I reach my goal I want to keep an update journey with all of you that helped me achieve my wish. Sorry for my English grammar. Thank you.
