I really don't know how to start this but, I'm Rj, 24, an architecture graduate from the Philippines, currently trying to find work in Dubai. I'm not really used to writing about myself, but I'll tell you guys a little bit about my story.
I'm not really that good at what I do, and it's partly because I don't love my profession that much. I know it sounds irresponsible at my part, and I do admit it is. Back when I was in High School, college courses didn't really matter much for me, I guess it's because at that time I didn't think too much about the future, so I just went with my parent's suggestions and went for architecture. Strangely enough, I got through the course, mainly because, my then girlfriend, helped me through most of it.
I live a pretty normal, boring life in the Philippines, mainly doing graphic design freelance jobs for cash. Early last year, I tried my luck in finding a job overseas. Took quite a while but I managed to fly to Dubai, only to be met with a job that made me regret going there. Let's just say I've been used, abused and accused. I kinda don't want to elaborate as I'm trying to get it out of my system and I don't want to give a negative impression about Dubai. I had to go back to the Philippines for a while after that incident since it left me less than what I started with. After around 8 months of thinking and saving up, (and because of Philippines' poor economy), I decided to go back to Dubai, why go back to Dubai? Well, it's the only country I have relatives that can stand as my "Sponsor." Other overseas workers would know what I mean. Basically it's really hard to go to other countries without a "Sponsor."
Well, sorry for that wall of text, after all that, here's my current situation. I've been here for a little more than a month already, still jobless. And if I don't find a job in less than a month's time, I'll have to either pay and renew my visa or go back home and all will be for nothing. Problem is, because of a certain mishap with my plane ticket's refund, my current savings probably won't last by next month.
Also, in by no means I am the best candidate for a donation, in fact, there's a lot of organizations, charities and individuals who are more deserving of your hard-earned money. I wholeheartedly suggest that you consider donating to them first if you have spare cash. I'll try my best to find a job as soon as possible and before my savings run dry, but if it's genuinely your intention to donate and help me out, then I would be eternally grateful to you.
This has been quite a long description, I could honestly tell you more, but I don't want to bore you. Haha! Hope we all go through our hurdles in life, and smile all through it. Pretty sure, all of us have, had and will have our shortcomings, but I'm even more sure that we'll all manage, somehow. Well, thanks for reading through my long ramblings about my current life, and even more than donations, you can always give me some love and friendship and I'm sure it will help me a lot.
Anyway, farewell for now. And have a wonderful, amazing day.
