Life is unpredictable and that's just facts, but what happened to me is just unbelievable. How could you imagine the person that invested the most, that loved you the most will do such an horrible thing. Guess its life, these things happened.
I wanted to change the life I was living, I wanted to help my mom. So, I wanted to go to study in USA. After my high school diploma my dad opposed himself to it by saying “who am I to study in USA”. Anyway, after a lot of arguments my mom did all she could to help me with her little money to have a start in Houston Community College a cheap college that I found during my research. So yes, I succeed in Coming to America! It was in 2016. I studied hard, made friends and got some scholarships too, but they were on the amount of $500, there were not much for international students. After 3 years my mom was short on money and needed to sell her land to help me go through the expenses of my last semester as I only had 4 classes left in my major, that was Business Administration. At this time my dad affected us in the most horrific way. He knew I was hoping of getting a better life, so even though he was not helping at all, he did not give to my mom the papers of her property, so she could not sell it in time and help me. Since I was not able to go to school I was obliged to come back and leave everything behind me. It happened recently this April 2019. He took over her papers when there was a legal fight over it, because some people built on it confusing theirs. Everything went fine, but since my mom let dad took care of the transaction, he never handed back her papers, and she also never asked until things were getting rough for us.
I should let you know that in Houston, I started with a bicycle to get by. I quickly realized that I needed a car to get more things done. But since my living expenses were too heavy to get that accomplished, my mom wanted to sell her land. I understood that lately it was because of my dad that she couldn’t. Depressed I asked to come back on march 2018 if I can’t get the full support of my parents with all my accomplishments. My uncles in USA were quick to say go back, never seen them btw. So my mom surprised me when she worked out a way to get enough money to get the car by May 2018. My Dad found out through my uncle, unfortunately I was the one that told him, thinking he will not care, and somehow be a little happy for me to help me in the future. Anyway my dad could not do anything to stop that from happening.
I thought my mom was loosing it all. So when I went back home I didn't want to blame her. And told her its ok. You need to know that I went through ICE and had to take Voluntary departure. I did 3 weeks on suicide watch. I was getting ready to ask for asylum. My parents didn't even know where I was for almost 2 weeks. They thought I was dead. It was a friend of mine that contacted them through my Facebook. And then looked out for me. So they end up finding where I was. My uncles in USA told me not to ask for Asylum, my parents will welcome me home together and my father will do his best to change. From ICE I could not call my parents that are in Niger. So unfortunately I believed it. They didn't welcome me together, only my dad came with his friends. It was the worst feeling I could ever felt. But I kept my cool, and was patient. Went back home, and was waiting on my dad to put me in the school he talked about to his friends and my mom. Well they were all lies. My mom still lives like a maid in the house, and my dad the King that can't do no wrong. Well I had to leave the House because I didn't like what was going on, and that I did. With all this drama I don t deal with people at all, but I had two friends that I asked to help my mom find a buyer while I was still in Houston. From one of them I got the real truth! What happened is that my friend not only found a buyer, but also made sure the money is available on time and it was $16,000 the semester is less than $3k. What he told me is that my mom did let my dad go and finish the deal. The day that this was suppose to happen they were waiting on my dad's call, he called them late to meet. They still came with the money and the notary, or somebody that make the transaction legal. He told them the Banks are closed and to meet the following day, just to call them and tell them one of his friend bought it. I was waiting to get helped she could not even tell me that I won't get helped! And she preferred saying there was no buyer yet. She just waited to see what was going to happen, and it was my mom! And I know she let that happened to keep her marriage, and satisfy my dad by getting me to come back. The land sold should be hers, but my dad I am sure took that money for himself saying that she owes him. Now she is even more broke. He also bought a new big truck while I was in USA and very needy for help. Anyway I lost it all, he got It got it all. Because he really wanted to do that to us and I swear he is happy the way we are! She tried to help I can't deny it, but she also knows the way she gave up is not right. If she could help me right now, I know I will be already back. Don't get me wrong its a good mom, but she got lost by a very bad guy. I am really grown from it that I can tell you.
Now she is still helping me to stay in a cheap place, but Lord knows what she did is just... I have no words for it. I don't have time to hate. So on the first day that the Green card lottery was opened I sent my application. But I know I will need money, and from what I have seen I just cannot count on my family to help. I really want to re-apply for a student visa, that is why I am asking that much, because HCC requires international students to have $22k available in an account to show you can live in USA for a year, but also since it will be my last semester, my plan is to continue to either the University of Houston or Texas Southern University. Its even more expensive since its around $10K a semester for internationals but I will do my best to figure out a way to succeed if given the chance to try. I hope I will be understood. To be honest if there was a way I could take a loan I will do it, but cannot do it when you have to show that you can repay it, and I am saying that for myself. I always been real, never took advantage and lived on what God gave me. I am not scared of losing it all and dying in the worst way. I Know my conscience is clean, I never hated or tried to hurt someone. I am doing this as a last resort, I am already Thankful to God with the life I lived in the USA, and if there is more to come, I just have this to say "Hell Yeah".
