Hello, I am a 21-year-old Korean who dreams of becoming a musician.
The reason I invited you to help me is because of the many difficulties that I can not overcome with my own strength in my steps toward my dream.
To summarize, let me first explain my situation, I am a student who has a dream of loving music and being a conductor. However, I have a family situation, separation from my parents, and many other diseases (depression, panic disorder, anxiety disorder, insomnia, arrhythmia, lung disease, epilepsy, etc.).
I work as a carpool driver, 7eleven and dishwasher everyday, every night to maintain normal life before the dream of a musician. However, this is only enough to meet my hospital expenses and the price of a meal a day. “Someone can tell me, you just work full time and doing your dream after that!”. But as a psychiatric patient, That is impossible. Will a boss hire a patient who has mental disorders and various diseases as a full-time employee? Of course there are people who are good in the world, but I talking about most of them.
I have a dream to live in this hard day by day. As a conductor, I am on stage as a musician. Music is the only friend and backbone for me. I play clarinet or singing a song, play the piano on a difficult day when I can not sleep for more than 100 hours(1week) because of terrible insomnia. I can experience the sickness of my mind healing for a while. Especially, as a person who plays clarinet, I have never received a proper lesson. However, I am also doing a music therapy class and a clarinet service for my developmental disability friends who will live a harder life than me even on a difficult day. Music is the only hope and dream in my life.
However, as the day passes, the sickness and medicine costs of illnesses and psychiatric illnesses that have not been treated on time are pushed away, and my dream music seems to be moving away from my reality. But I do not want to give up my dream so easily.
So I was a bit embarrassed and a bit heartbroken to raise crowdfunding. Give me strength to cure my illness and to move toward my dreams. Your small devotion will be a stepping stone to the world's best musicians. I dare to be myself. I will have a healthy future and a future that will help you and those who are harder than me.
My journey to music is accompanied by a resume I submitted to the Royal Conservatory of Denmark, which challenged me this time.
Please support me so that I can start my step toward the dream.
