My name is Venny, 18, I'm from Indonesia. I have been working as a freelancer for almost one year now, learning new things everyday, polishing the needed skills. One year ago, I decided not to attend college, yet, because I wanted to pursue my passion, I wanted to fulfill my dream, to become an entrepreneur, and I don't want my parents to pay for my tuition, even if someday I wish to attend college, I wanted to pay it by myself.
I have the rough ideas for my startups, which is about something I'm very passionate of, fashion. I love the thought of doing something I'm passionate of, and I decided to pursue it. Even when everyone said I'm a stupid person who doesn't think about her future, I still stand by my decision, to pursue my dream. It wasn't an easy decision, and I know the journey ahead will be hard, but still, I want to do it, I have to do it. That is my future.
I keep a diary by my side, writing everything down, about my hardship, about my mental health, about my social anxiety. The people around me are still very close-minded, and the thought of me doing something out of ordinary irked them. Everyone in my small city knows about me not wanting to attend college, pursuing something impossible instead. I began to develop this fear of people. My anxiety is eating me alive, but doing this is what keeping me alive.
I never thought I will ever do a campaign for fund-raising, but as a matter of fact, I'm doing it. To be completely honest, I'm making this campaign as a desperate attempt to collect funding for my startup, as I don't know where else should I borrow money from. No one believes in me, not even my family. They thought I'm doing something impossible, not to mention our family's recent financial issue.
But I wanted to prove them wrong, so please, help me fulfill my dream, even a dollar will be greatly appreciated. I promise I will become a great person in return. I promise I will never back down, I promise I will return it back someday, to others who need the help. I promise I will never give up. I promise I will become a successful person to prove them wrong.
Thank you very much for reading this, and if you decided to help me, thank you, really, thank you very much, your help is very greatly appreciated, and I wish you good health, good luck, and good life. Thank you, really, thank you :)
Have a good day!
