Hi everyone, my name is Ernesto Labrador. First of all, thanks for being interested in this Campaign.
I'm a Medical Student at the University of Carabobo, in Venezuela. As you may know, Venezuela is passing through some hard times, we are one of the poorest countries in the world, and also, one of the most dangerous. I'm not gonna try to sell you out my Campaign by saying these sad things, so let's jump into the Campaign itself.
As you can see in the title, I started this Campaign because I need a new PC for 2 main reasons:
- Study: Almost every homework I get at the University has to be done via online: Word Documents, PowePoint Presentations, etc... Not only that, the books that I need for studying, such as "Semiología de Alvarez Argente", "Medicina Interna de Harrison", "Immunología del Abbas", are not available in my country, so I have to download them as PDF archives (I know that's piracy and is illegal, but is the only choice I have), also, I study using Simulators, which are actually quite difficult to use, because of the requirements they need, they need powerful PC's because of all the calculations they do in seconds.
- Video Creation: Besides being a Medical Student, I work as a YouTuber, I have a 40k Suscribers Channel: www.youtube.com/user/kiubi203 This channel is what gives me the money I use for surviving. I earn $15-$20 per month with this channel, which is barely enough for surviving. I "sell" those dollars to turn them into Bolívares (Venezuelan Coin) so then I can help my family with grocery (when we find it), paying bills, etc... The reason I need this new PC, is because the one I'm using right now, while I write this Campaign, is "dying". It is a very old PC. As you might see in my channel, I'm a "Videogame Mythbuster", and the games I play are very old, being GTA San Andreas the newest one (The GTA IV, GTA V and Mortal Kombat X videos were played and recorded in a friend's PC, he left the country searching for a better future, so I can't use his PC anymore) With this new PC I will be able to play newer games, which means better content > more views > more revenue > more money to help my family. Also I'm planning to start a new channel dedicated in Sketches, Vlogs, and Stand Up. Just to give my fellows Venezuelans some smiles in their faces. They need them, we are passing through a very hard time.
I know that maybe $2,500 sounds like a lot of money, but all that money it's not only for the PC. It will be used to pay the shipping, helping my family and paying some debts that my father has. Half of the money is for the PC, and the rest is for what I said.
I do not know how to end this, just wanted some help. Thank you all that donated, thank you all that read this.
I hope you have a great day.
