I want my life on track again, follow what I really want to live on, I want to be a translator!
On my childhood I meet a lot of different people around the world, maybe it’s that the reason I was so in a deep touch with cultures and languages.
When I was a kid I played games on idioms I don’t even understand, but I was not afraid, to give a try and put some effort to learn, took a dictionary, comprehend and then like a lotus blooming your whole world expand (full colors and high definition!).
But men does not live of dreams and study this field was not profitable to live on for. My father could never accept such a dangerous adventure for me, instead recommended to follow a safe career. But a safe career without passion It is like a bird on a cage.
During this time I met a ton of beautiful persons, people who I can call friends and then again the insatiable desire to get closer to language blooms again.
At first, English and then without even a blink I just started learning Japanese. On this time I:
- Participated on American Corner activities
- Speaking Competition in Japanese language at national level, taking second place in the intermediate level (first time for my college for someone reaches that level and takes a place!)
- Contestant and winner of scholarship “Study trip award for outstanding student” of Japan Foundation
- Collaborated in a bunch of activities of idiom center of my city.
- And the list go on…
All these time destiny just give me a slap in my face to react and do something about those neat academics skills so this is the time. Almost 4 years waiting for this opportunity and maybe my last chance.
I’m working now, my previous time at college counted against me, my old credits are my Achilles hills, so now I not be able to receive any financial aid, not a single one. Because of that I’m saving all I can keep now, even my parent agrees with her entrepreneur child, but I don’t want them to suffer because the expenses, they have their own debts to deal for paying the rent of their house and diabetic medication since this year. We are just a middle class struggling to fulfill this dream.
My family lives on the big island of Chiloe, I moved to work seven hours away from my home to my goal of going to the University of Concepcion to be a translator (which means almost 10 hours of my hometown).
I was doubtful of this idea at first, but I just pleading for your hand this time reducing these adventures expenses, because soon I will be a broke college student.
Your contribution will help me to pay some of these expenses: travel fees, tuition, pay the monthly rent and the career per se.
I only ask you a friendly donation, the amount you see if counting all the 5 years of study and if you're are guessing why is so expensive, I live in chile, so yes, it's expensive (this isn't even a study abroad!).
To my friends, family and people who sponsor me I want to thank you for believe in me. I can’t only promise you I will make all of you proud.
