My name is Nana Ditesheim, I'm here because I don't know what to do anymore, although I feel embarassed to be asking people to help me, I think any kind of help would be good for me right now.
I've always been moving from country to country and never really found my place, until I discovered South Korea, took all my courage to go there but I did it and I've never felt so in love with a place like I did when I was there, I was free and positive, I found friends I want to keep for life and I learnt so many things about myself and the world. Everything was going great, I had been living there with a working visa for 9 months when suddenly one night at work (I worked at a bar), immigration raided the place, put me (and many others) in handcuffs and detained me without any explanation, even after I showed them my visa, they said that doesn't mean anything. In the middle of the night they put handcuffs on me, put me on a bus and took me to an immigration jail where they told me I will be deported as soon as i buy myself a flight ticket. Scared I asked if they would let me take my belongings, at least pack, close deals with my phone company, bank, house that I rented... They said no, they didn't care one little bit about my life or situation and just wanted me out of the country asap.
I had just moved to a new house, spending a lot of money in the moving, the new furniture and the rent, which meant the whole thing happened right when I had no savings at all... I am lucky my mother bought my flight ticket back home (with money she doesn't really have...) and I had one friend who could bring me a bag with some clothes that I only got to see when I arrived to my country (immigration took us until the airplane in handcuffs too).
Now I am back in this country where I don't feel at home and where I don't have my friends or a future I want to even consider, I feel lost and I have nothing, and the worst thing all my most precious belongings are still in Korea, all my memories and the things that I'm passionate about are at someone who was taking care of my apartment, and now doesn't want to have anything to do with me or my things, saying I need to get them out of there as soon as possible. Not only the cost of sending my things will be high, I also have to pay for the breaking of my phone contract, which I discovered is around 400 dollars... I have no idea what to do, the place where I currently live has no job offers, and I don't have a car... I'm looking at all my possibilities to make money or find a job and thought that I'd to try this too...
The things I have left there are my most precious memories and it hurts me that the only memory I have of the best 9 months of my life, is how they imprisoned me without giving me any explanation and sent me to what they called "my home", without understanding, I left my home there.
I honestly don't know what to do anymore, any help will be good, thank you for reading my story.
