I'm Marko, and from my early ages I was fascinated by America and its big cities, and ever since I can remember I am dreaming about visiting New York!
I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a small country in the Balkans which you may never heard about. The country is beautiful but living there is not due to the recent war that lasted four years. In that war I lost my father. I was one year old when he died defending our home, and I never had a chance to meet him. I grew up with my mother, and she was giving her best to secure me a better future, but due to the place I live, despite my optimism, there is no better future for my generation.
I found out for crowdfunding recently but I had no courage to publish my story because I know there are a lot of people like me, but when I realized that otherwise I might never go to New York, I gathered courage and publish this. When Google introduced the option google streeet view I spent days and days on the New York streeets admiring his beauty, size of buildings and people, but my desire to go there only grew. I tried to save money by doing many jobs, but payment in Bosnia and Herzegovina is simply too small, and with it I just could pay my apartment and buy food.
I am 24 years old and I am aware that I live in a poor country where I'll never be able to save money for the trip I am dreaming for, so I ask YOU to help me and send me on a journey of my life!
