Hello, my name is Erika and I'm from Argentina. Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of making films and working in the film industry. I come from a low resources family, my mother's a housewife and my father is a freelance graphic designer.
After many years of having to give up my dream in order to work for a little money that barely paid my phone bill, I decided to try and get in to University. I did it, worked hard and got in with straight A's. But there's a huge economic crisis in my country and I can't find a job, I've been trying for a long time, teaching private English classes once in a while, selling my clothes... it's getting very hard. I don't want to give up on my dream, it breaks my heart because it's the only thing that keeps me going. But I need to pay for books, bus tickets, a new laptop, and eventually a camera.
Please, if you can help me with even a dollar, you're going to be paying for my bus ride to go to my class and back. I'm desperate and heartbroken. Please, help me pursue this beautiful career so one day I can send my message to the world and give people in my situation hope.
