Hello, my name is Joel Astor, I am 22 years old and I live in Venezuela. I am a family member and have a permanent job at one of the state universities. Since childhood I have had a vocation for art, the image you see above is my personal creation.
I created this campaign to ask for help to pay for my graphic design studies, a couple of years ago started studying in one of the best schools of design but due to the economic situation that crosses the country I had to leave to work and to pay More important things like food and rent.
Today it is more difficult to survive in this country, where the dollar is quoted at 3,200 bsf and the minimum wage is 27,000 bsf which is about 9 dollars, which is enough to survive. Due to my talent as a designer, which I have acquired on my own, I have had the opportunity to work on an international level, but due to the crisis that my country is experiencing, I have not yet been able to obtain a university degree.
The semester at the Digital Design Center (CDD) costs 360,000 Bs which would be about $ 112. I ask you for help in order to pay for the six semesters, the cost of the design materials, and to afford a laptop since I recently became a victim of crime and my video card and my laptop were stolen, without them I can not continue working as Designer and I find it harder to survive.
My goal is to be able to graduate and create a company of graphic design and audiovisual and musical projects in my country so as to give opportunity to young talents who do not have the resources to study this beautiful career.
I hope you can help me with something like this, it's the least, thank you very much to everyone!
