My name is Lupe. I am 16 years old, brazilian, and a high school senior.
All my life I've dreamed with my prom day. I worked hard and passed all my classes, I studied and am currently trying to get in a good college. All just so I could enjoy my prom day to the max, knowing that I did my best through all those school years, and now I get to celebrate for ending yet another stage of my life.
The problem is I can't pay for it.
The money I need isn't even that much, but I can't work yet for being underage. I can't count on my parents either. My mom is unenployed and my dad's payment is not much. We barely pay rent and food, there's not even close enough to pay for my school, the late bills pile is getting higher every day.
I also don't feel like I could be asking them for the money even if we had it. My mom and I have a really bad relationship. She threatens me and my dad, screams at us and breaks our stuff. I don't trust her at all, but my dad can't divorse her for multiple reasons.
All I asking for is a little help, if you can.
