Counting on friends and kind people to get me back home.
I like to think I am someone that is always have some active projects in mind and need to explore options to be able to create solutions for everything and everyone.
I am a hairstylist by trade and last year our industry has been affected in a terrible way, to this date I have never shown or developed signs of weakness, neither think I am doing it right now by creating this crowdfunding, although it has been hard to be an active person and move around trying to bring joy to people when we are affected in a whole by current travel restrictions.
On December 30th 2020 there was not any restrictions on place, I left to a trip to Brazil in order to keep working and do research, learn new things, buy raw materials for my experiments on natural sustainable products and keep my mind busy in general.
However I have been stopped from coming back home (LONDON) due to restrictions that keeps getting worse by the minute.
My original return date was January 23rd (Got cancelled)
Then a second date has been allocated for the February 15th (Got cancelled)
Then a option to fly via DOHA Qatar seems to be my only option to get back into the UK.
You all might be thinking ''why doesn't stay longer in Brazil? such a lovely place'' The thing is that we are also here living in lockdowns, and we have a much larger population therefore the number and the restrictions are proportionally bigger as well.
England has now made a new law stating that everyone returning from a red list country must stay in a Managed Quarantine Hotel - for 10 long days at the cost of £1750.
There is not a date saying when this managed quarantine hotel thing will end.
As a British Naturalised Citizen I do feel very much away from home right now. My life, my works and my projects are back in the U.K stuck right now and I feel I can't stay here waiting longer because we see everyday that things are only getting worse at the moment and I don't want to wait to find out that tougher restrictions are put on place and regretted to not have come back now.
I am not here for judgements on people saying that I should have stayed home, I think we all somehow should instead take those steps in life to make something for ourselves.
We lived pretty much too long under people telling us how to live, travelling nowadays are pretty much safe with mandatory testing prior boarding and so on. It makes me sad to see lots of business that have spent thousands making sure they are ''c_vid safe'' and even tough aren't allowed to operate.
I just want to come back home and carry on doing what I thing it is right for me to succeed and be able to help others.
Thank you in advance.
