Hello, i'm Marcos Monteiro 22yo, from Portugal.
I will tell you my story, its hard to talk, not that all my life was miserable or something like that, i know they are people in worst situations than mine, but i am here because i really need it, i would like to apologize in advance for the grammar mistakes and spelling sorry!
So lets start, i am not from a rich family i have 5 sisters i am the single guy,i am proud to say that i have 22 yo don't smoke rarely drink and when i go out its to play snooker and to have a nice time with my friends .
2 Of my sisters were on drug abuse alcool (1 in jail right know), i seen a lot of bad things on my life they hard kids too early, maybe because my parents aren't together since i was born, so maybe it was too hard for her.
My mother got a "boyfriend", that made things worst, he is possessive no one likes him, he makes rules that doesn't fit in anyone's head, so my family started to fall apart and it ended up just me, when i was 12 the year that i had a room to myself, but the sister that is in jail right know left and my mother had to say with the her son, he ended up on my room since than i saw that sister come back into my family life staying at my room with the son (i ended up sleeping on the floor), 1 month later i had to put her out because she punched my mother.
my mother was passing a rough time so i ended up staying at a sister house,sometimes, that i too sleep on the floor, started to live in my sisters house since i was 16 +/-, but she has a kid i had to split the bed/room with him too, i never had a chance to have my own things, i always try to save money and buy the things that i want or close to what i want
Don't like to talk about this that much but well, its the 2 year that i try to go to college but the scholarship was declined 2 times, i ended up leaving but this year ( the 2 time) i did a semester but i had to leave because i had no more money to stay there, my family cant help they dont have that much money.
I am working at the moment nothing fancy, i have to pay the tuition that is 1000€ (still have to pay), i try to live with my mom but to stay there i she and my step-dad didnt let me go out at night's (when i go out i come back at 00:00/1:00 between this time).
So i came back to my sisters, but i dont have a place that i can call home, that i can say this is mine i really need that in life, staying at my sisters house i have to give half of what i earn it's too much, i cant save that much, i cant save to the car that i need if i will work/study, to the car that i need to travel 70 km to my Girlfriend of 7 years, its the best time i have, and i am not obligated to have to take care of my sister's son's (i have 7 nephew's)
So i am here asking for 4000€, but if it hits 2000€ its great, the 4000€ its to help for the car and tuition.
To start to rent a house that's the minimum that i would like to have, i only need a few things on the house i don't mind to buy used things or sleep on a the floor if i can call that place home, i only need a fridge,light,microwave, internet, food.
IF only if you can donate more, it will help me to pay the tuition's and to buy the car so i can travel 60 km to a university and study while i work, sorry again for the grammar and writing mistakes!
