Hello ! I am a young man from Estonia, which is a small country in Northern Europe. I've achieved brilliant results at school and university (both Bachelor's of Sociology and currently Master's of Asian studies) but I'm still struggling to find a proper specialty-based job for myself, as the career opportunities in social sciences and especially in humanities are sadly rather limited in my small country.... :(
Most of my childhood and all of my teenage years had to be passed as one of the 2 children of a mostly jobless single mom...but in spite of almost constant financial difficulites, me and my older brother still managed to constantly excel at school !
But in addition, I also have a rather significant condition with my spine, which got kind of twisted when I was still a baby (actually through a deliberate trauma inflicted on me, as I've later heard)... And although from the outside, I more or less look like a completely normal handsome guy, I actually strongly lack stamina, which would make it very hard for me anyways, to survive in the long run at most of the work places, 40 h a week... Because of my spine, I'm unable to swim and can't even run long distances on a hard surface (because the constant pressure makes my back exhausted).
So now I've waited for almost 10 years for some kind of a financial miracle, so that I could complete a driving school at last, but it never happened...though I've managed to gather enough of savings during my life (e.g. from university scholarships for outstanding results) for hopefully being theoretically able to manage the costs of driving school now...But the pressure to succeed is immense and extremely stressful, starting to affect my often frail health even more...I usually even have less than 3 meals a day in recent times, simply to reduce my expenses on food...
Therefore, although my situation isn't honestly among the most urgent ones here on this fundraising site, I'd still be grateful for every single € that I'd manage to receive as a kind donation...because I'm not really asking for too much assistance. I've been deliberately very specific with my target amount, so that I wouldn't have to abuse the goodwill of people with some higher uncorrect targets (like 1000 € or so)..
