Hello, my name is Veronika also known as Lunar-Turtle and thank you for checking this campaign. I am an artist and author of webcomic Synastry, that is trying to make enough money to get own home. Why should you support me? I’ll try to give answer for that.
You see, I come from a broken family with very abusive father. We were very often starving and were witnesses of domestic abuse, very violent domestic abuse. Thankfully me and other member of my family left and right now I live with my boyfriend. I went to university hoping I can get job as librarian and actually graduated. The problem came with finding the job. People didn’t want to take me anywhere, or I had to do jobs that were hard to do and also destroyed me mentally. Being born into abusive family and having no financial stability wrecked my mental health and left me with fear of being stuck in retail or something similar forever. Right now we live with my partner’s parents, because getting flats over here is very hard. They are rare and very pricey.
I was living at this place for a very long time now and everything just starts to feel the same. I want to move out, start a family and have a good life, but nothing changes over the years. I decided to make money as artist, because it’s the only thing I can do properly and I don’t need to be hired. After being kicked out from so many places, I hope art can get me out of this place. The parents don’t like me and I am very often insulted and also sometimes screamed at. It is vey stressful for me, because I try to do my best, but life never went my way. I simply don’t know what to do anymore. I don’t want anything else, than having my own home and family and it breaks my heart, when I see other people with children and happy. When I try to go to normal job, it fails and I’m scared about not making enough money with comic in time. I am so scared of growing old and not being able to have children anymore. I don’t want to cry every time I see a happy family and know I don’t have that.
I want to beg you for help. If we manage to reach the goal, it would be HUGE help to get the flat and finally leave this place. I would be eternally thankful to you, with all my heart.
Thank you, Veronika
