I recently moved from Germany to the United States to look for new opportunities. When I first moved here it was just me and my two dogs. I went from minimum wage job to other minimum wage jobs. I then started going to a community college in my area to get a better education and hopefully a better job. That plan did not workout, as now I am still attending school and working a low paying job. The expenses of college as well as paying rent has taken a lot out of my financial stability. I have been looking for opportunities every day to find a better job though it’s hard as I do not speak great English and that’s why I’m having my girlfriend type all of this for me. Life in America is not what I expected it to be. It’s completely different than when I was in Germany. From the people to the way society works it’s different. I’ve been grateful for the people I’ve met along the way on this journey as they have all helped me make a better life here. Though I cannot ask my friends for money as most of us are in the same financial situation. I heard about this website through a friend who said he knew somebody that was in a low spot in life due to financial struggles so he came here and everything was changed for them. At this point I am willing to try anything to help me get my life on a better path so I can have a successful future which was my main reason for coming to the United Stares. Though the reason I’m here is not for me but for my dog. Her name is Matilda but I just call her maddie. Maddie is a boxer and she’s 8 years old. She recently injured her ACL and required surgery to fix it. She now has a metal plate and 4 screws in her leg and now I have $2,000 less. So I’m asking for any money that you can donate to help me pay off her vet bills, because as of right now I’m not financially stable. Anything that can be donated can be a great change to my life and hopefully put me on the path to success. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to learn my story.
