Hello everyone! So this is where I explain this fundraising, right?
My name is Samantha and I am a simple girl from Malaysia yearning to make her next big adventure in life.
Basically I just need some extra funds on top of my savings to stay in South Korea for a bit (a month or so) while I scout for jobs. I do not hold any fancy degree or anything so scouting for jobs online can prove a little more challenging (seeing as jobs advertised are very specific roles that require more paperwork than I possess). I do however, speak fluent English and Malay, can carry out basic conversations in some Japanese and can read Korean. I am hoping my language prowess, passion for trying new things, and working experience so far would prove handy for hospitality-related jobs.
I do not plan to overstay, no worries there, so if my funds run out and there is no luck with jobs, I will return. I am going to Korea in September 2018, and am currently also working to save up.
Why S. Korea then, you may ask? I have been there once and completely fell in love with the places I saw, the people I met and spent time with. I knew I had to go back. It has also been my dream to work abroad, hopefully in search of better pay and quality of life, and to provide better for my family while living someplace I can finally call home, even if temporary. It will be an uphill climb for a 26 year old such as myself, but I am willing to work hard to be where I need to be.
Please only give as much as you can afford, if you feel like making another person's day and playing a role in someone's life journey :) If you have questions I will be happy to answer, after all it is normal to want to know where your money is going!
I will be very thankful for each and every contribution. I will be sure to pay it forward, and when i do make more money, I will be sure to help others in need.
