Hello my name is Endrina, I'm a 21 y.o Modern Languages student from Caracas, Venezuela at the Central University of Venezuela (UCV)
As some of you may know Venezuela is currently going through a very hard economic crisis. Some people are dealing with very bad nutrition and some others are just unable to access good health care. with all that is going on I find myself to be quite priviledged: I have no big debts and I am in good health. Things for which I am incredibly greatful. That said, the crisis still has gotten to me and, as the vast majority of people here, I am unable to save any money whatsoever.
I've been dealing with depression for the past 5 years of my life. It's been incredibly difficult for me to stay motivated and positive with everything that is going on. I've been lucky enough for my university to offer me free therapy and again, I'm grateful for that. My therapist said that I should start going out more and doing some exercise in order to drain out my frustration and surrounding myself with new enviroments which is why I started my reasearch on roller skating. I've never been a sports person but ever since I saw roller skating women I felt incredibly motivated to try it out. As I've said before I cannot afford skates by my own since all the money I earn I spend in food, bills and cold medicine (since I get sick quite often)
I know there are much more important campaigns out there, which is why I encourage you to go and donate to those big causes if you can but I would be eternally grateful if you decide to help me out in this :)
The roller skates I am raising money for are the Candi Girl Roller Skates ($99 + $35 shipping) in a size 6 (I'm size 36-37, which I think is 6 American, please correct me if I'm wrong) which you can see a review of in here:

Review of the Candi Girl Roller Skates.
GoGetFunding only allows me to raise a minimum of 250 so I need to raise that amount in order to claim the money. If I am able to get the 250 I will buy the Moxi Beach Bunny Roller Skates:
If you know of someone who is selling similar ones of if you yourself are selling those in the size I need, please let me know! I'm willing to buy second-hand as long as they still are in good quality for a beginner :)
Thank you so much for reading and I hope you are doing well <3
