Hello there, Dear Donor.
I am called Jhonatan Marulanda and I am 21 years old. Oh! And I am a fantasy novel writer who has an humongous ambition; to become a legendary writer who is able to surpass Gabo, and even Tolkien, as well as win the Novel Prize in literature. I am also a pre-service English teacher at a public institution in Colombia, and a passionate student of BA Degree in Foreign Language Teaching at Universidad Católica de Oriente in Antioquia.
Note: If you wish to know more about me;I am a language student, a fantasy writer, a real friend, a son, a cyclist, a teacher, a learner, and a human in search of peace and love.
I shall tell you a secret; even if I am becoming an English teacher who wants to transform my country's educational system with literature, my biggest ambition lies on writing fantasy tails, short stories and novels. I have already written some fantasy works with which I have won my very first prize in literature in my academy, however, you must understand that my ambition is too far from just winning an academic contest. As I mentioned before, I want to write the next bestseller.
Why should you fundraise me?
When sending me any quantity of money you are helping a young dreamer to make those dreams reality. The money I collect will be addressed to my subsistence in home (I must find a new room where I can live; it can be with a family so it is the cheapest possible), to my academic process and especially to the publishing of my works. And don't forget that if you donate a minimum of $100 you will be rewarded with one of my best works, which is a short story about a scholar party that turned into the summoning of a demon and other ominous creatures (PDF), and If you donate 1000, you will get a preferencial view (the first two chapters) of the novel I am working on right now called "The Eyes of The Dragon" in PDF too. So please leave your email address in one of the sections and I will send my work to you personally as well as my thanks.
Why do I need your money?
I am in need of a crowdfunding because my current situation does not allow me to work (more) and earn money. As I mentioned before, I am currently teaching at a public institution as a pre-service teacher several hours a week, but even if I do so, I am not getting paid because of my country's policies for my academic program. Besides, have to pay the bill of my university in June and I still lack that cash, and finally, I have to move from home because my parents' current situation cannot afford them to help me economically. I am about to finish my BA Degree (this is my seventh semester of eight) and this basically is why I need your precious support.
I will always thank you for the support you can give me, and one day, I could honor you and the other donors in one of my bestsellers as part of my gratitude towards you.
Thank you for existing and support people like me; dreaming writers in search of peace and knowledge.
J. V. Natan
