Hi, my name Jessica. I currently live in South Africa with my parents in rural farmlands. I'm 22 years old with no tertiary education.
This year has been really tough, I lost my job end of last year and ended up using my savings to buy myself a secondhand car, and anyone that stays in South Africa will understand at my age how difficult it is to get a job. I've been struggling with mental illness and it's been difficult getting support.
For a few years, I have been crafting in my spare time. I'm passionate about it and love working with my hands. Over the years I have accumulated certain tools for leathercraft. It is my favourite activity and it would be my dream career. I haven't had the money to buy the tools or leather, instead, I have spread the word through friends and family. Most have been kind enough to pass down old tools. I've met up with leather craftsman who has spared me leather and knowledge to use.
With 2020 coming around the corner and a whole year has gone by without hope,
I'm reaching out now for any help I can get...
