Assalamuelikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu (Peace and blessing be upon you my dear friends),
I have started this campaign in order to accomplish my dream of doing a language immersion exchange in both Spain and Morocco this summer helping me to master both Spanish and Arabic. I was well prepared for this trip and everything was ready to go until I ran into some family issues and an issue related to a scam that has lost me on track to plan my trip.
So, instead of canceling my trip to travel I do not want to give up on this dream. Ever since I came home from Ethiopia, I have been dreaming for years to go back out there into the world to meet people, and to learn as many languages as possible. I remember dreaming that one day I could become a language mastermind like Sir Richard Francis Burton. Throughout my years, I have met wonderful people, and have been through tough times like I am sure all of you have. I have watched friends and family die, been harrassed and bullied in my time here in the States, and remember even wanting to kill myself because I didn't want to live anymore. I thought I had nothing to give to this world and everyone is more deserving to be something that I could only dream of.
But thanks to many other brothers and sisters, as well as my family I'm hopeful that I CAN do good for our ummah and our community and that's why I need your guys help.
My goal is a bit of a stretch but simple, what I want to do is to see if I can raise $2000 in 2 months of posting this campaign. This money would help me to get by with my living expenses and many other expenses that I did not take into account. It would allow me to pay for my school and not have to sleep on the streets during my time abroad. This trip would also allow me to take some time off from my current area. It has really made me depressed quite a bit and exploring a new place would mean so much to me.
And I just want to tell you guys that I'm just a student of knowledge that wants to do good to people and I would never ask for your guys help if I really didn't need it. Even looking at my personal finances (which I probably shouldn't be making public haha) shows that I have always put my earnings for knowledge. On top of that I am also working on my end and on top of being in school, I am trying to get 2 new jobs to help me raise money.
That's all that I have for you guys. Jazakallah kharian and thank you guys who want to help make my dream a reality.
