"I think, therefore I am" -René Descartes-
Let me introduce myself.
My name is Zacka Hutama. Please call me Tama for short.
I live in Indonesia, a country where its people still struggle to grasp the globalization and the diversity in the world. The people in Indonesia, mostly the moslems, are religious to an extreme degree. Therefore limits the freedom of ideas.
In my case,
My family is an extremely religious moslem. And so were I, until I studied the religion myself in my Junior High School era and found some points, which are in my opinion strange and does not fit my sense of truth. From then, I decided to quit being a moslem and learn various religions in search of God, since I'd like to find my own truth rather than blindly follow what people said. Up to this day, I am still in search of the truth and continuing my personal researches on philosophy to improve my judgements.
The problem is,
I was determinded that I could not follow what they are believing in the end of my High School era, thus, I have gone through many discrimination inside my own family, just because I have diffrent ideas in many aspects of life, for they looks at all things with religious perspective.
Up to the present day, I got no support from my family in all aspect and live by my own expenses, thanks to my several best friends from Japan who helped me getting various freelance jobs, so I could get a living and even paid my own tuition in University of Indonesia, one of the best University in my country.
Why did I asked your help?
I would be graduate in August 2017. Since I got no support from anyone within my family, I look for your and those within my inner circle's helpy hands for me to have a good start on my life. My dream is to start my own little business (still considering about this) or to continue my study to the higher stage (I am still undergraduate now) so that l could be independent, and thus, I have more power to help those who are in the similar condition as me in the future.
Ofcourse, I could not make these visions come true without your support.
Long live the freedom of toughts!
