My name is Kuli and I am asking for help to fund my wedding in March.
I am not trying to have a huge fancy wedding but little did I know, things even at their cheapest all adds up and I feel exasperated that I feel like I can't afford a wedding. Born in Taiwan and migrating to the US when I was 5 with my chinese family, I was quickly swept away by the American culture. Even the storybook wedding every girl wishes one day to have and to share with their family. Unfortunately, my parents had divorced when I was 5 and I have not seen my biological mother since. My stepmom could not work things out with my father either, so she left when I was 13. Shortly after, my dad returned to China 1 month before I was due to graduate. I have not seen him since the day he dropped my brother and I off at school and telling us he wasn't coming back. I took my brother and got us an apartment, as he was still a junior. I curated 3 jobs to pay the bills, and slowly was able to gain experience and promotions to survive off one job as an administrative assistant. It hasnt been pretty but I'm grateful adn my life has been fruitful. I sincerely could not have done this without my savior who indsicreetly blessed me with genuine friends. I have learned since that family is not always about blood and everything can change with a blink of an eye so I am so appreciative of every little piece of kindess I am given. I have met the love of my life and wish to create a family unlike the one in which I grew up in....and hoping to start that off with a beautiful yet humble wedding.
I share this story not to gain sympathy but to illustrate my lack of family and thus, why I have turned to crowdfunding for help. I would immensely be appreciative of any help you can contribute, help me spread the word-if anything!
