Hello. My name is Andreea, I'm 30 years old and I'm from Romania. When I was 15, my father passed away unexpectedly and since then my life started spiraling in a downward trend. Depression hit me hard and I made some poor life choices - I stopped caring about studying and started working in a bar. I started drinking. Alcohol has become my best friend. It was the only thing that helped me cope with the loss, but also the thing that almost ruined my life. I used to live day to day, not making any plans for the future, not caring what tomorrow will bring. Last year I turned 30 and something changed inside me. I couldn't live in this uncertainty anymore. I couldn't live not caring about tomorrow. I couldn't keep waking up wanting my life to end. I was tired and the only thought in my head was the one telling me that I'm a failure. I stopped drinking and tried to get my life together but the truth is I don't have any skills, any diplomas or any ace up my sleeve. I feel like I'm stuck in a rut, working to pay the bills and put food on the table. I found some job offers abroad that pay decent money and that could help me start my life in a new place, I think this might be good for me, I have too many sad memories in Romania and also the money that I earn here is barely enough for the basic necessities. Unfortunately, going abroad is something that requires an amount of money that I don't have - money for the plane ticket, accomodation and pocket money for the first month or two until I get a first wage abroad. I have picked up extra hours at work, even found a little side hustle but it just seems impossible to put together the needed money as the pay in Romania is really bad - the minimum wage is about $2 an hour. I have found this website and thought to give it a go, any little help that you guys could offer would mean the world to me! I am thinking about moving to the UK, looks like there are loads of opportunities there and the money is a lot better! I think that starting my life in a new place will be the fresh start that I need. Well anyhow, that's my little story in a nutshell, I will keep you posted on my progress. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
