I'm born in a very poor Italian family and thanks to the efforts of my parents I studied arts but I've never had the chance to finish the high school beacuse when I was 17 our economic situation became worse than before.
I've always worked doing my best to help my parents that had lost also their house, but in the meanwhile I didn't have the possibility to save money for me and my future. I've never stopped thinking about what I really wanted to do and my passion for arts.
Now I'm 30, I'm married and I'm once again searching for a job: I'm going on doing interviews but I'm still jobless. I just had the chance to draw for free for a local newspaper and to work part time as waitress for few months since we moved to our new city.
My partner is totally supporting me and wants to help me to attend a course that will start on early September, but as our only income is around 1000 euros there is not much left for this project at the end of the month.
I'm really dreaming about doing something that it is practical, related to the passion I have for art and that will permit me to create my own activity and to finally have the possibility to help my family.
Crossing all these ideas, I've finally found something: a quoted Tattoo academy in our city.
I know that it can seem a futile and risky choice, but, in our situation, we really thought carefully about our perspectives, our future and our possibilities and, even if it seems strange, this kind of job seems to still have a market in Barcelona even during this historical period in which Europe is still hit by the global crisis.
I thank in advance everyone would be able to help me realize this dream and will give me the chance to reinvent my future even today when, being 30ish and without a proper school education, it seems I'm already cut out from the job market.
