Hello, my name is Lara, i´m a 19 years old trans woman from Colombia, i live in a deeply transfobic, conservative city-country, where LGBTQ rights are often violated, especially those of trans people are discriminated, of course i haven´t been and exception.
I decided to make this crowfunding because i need help financially, doe to the pandemic my live have been deeply afected, my mental health is at its worst and i can´t but think in suicide; mental health issues is something i have been dealing with for the last 4 years, but now im at my limit, im broken, and need a change in my life.
i have been triying to get out of my transfobic house and ambient, but i have encounter with many obstacules that make it almost imposibble, starting with the lack of support of my family , their attacks and transfobia, this combined with the fact that the unployment rate between young people is over 30% in my city have left me with no choices.
Because all of this im here looking for financcial support, so i can leave my house and start over in the capital (Bogotá) where there are more opportunities for me to find a job so i can be independent, also is a much more liberal city, where i´ll be more safe and don´t be discriminated as i am where i live right now, all of this would make my life much better and help me a lot with my mental healt.
The money that i get would be used to pay most of my expenses, such as: rent, food, transportation and clothes, tho i plan to start HRT, first i need to stablish my self financially, that´s why the money won´t go towards it. The 2000 dollar goal is a amount that would allow me to pay for all this expenses for as long as 6 months, a time i think would be enough for me to find a job and be able to live on my own, so every dollar you donate would make a difference and i´ll be infinitely grateful for it.
i´ll be updating as much as possible, so you can know where the money is going and how it have help me.
