Hi I’m Maeve and I’m 22. Last year, I had to drop out of university because I was raped by my ex boyfriend. I was offered no support or help so had to leave, leaving all of my life goals and dreams there.
I decided to make a life for myself after leaving and that wasn’t staying in my hometown (there are no opportunities there) and move to London for an amazing job. Sadly, I became very sick and almost committed suicide, losing my job in the process. I never ask my family for help, or anyone really.
The main reason I don’t ask my family is because they can’t afford it – my brother has cancer and is life limited so all money goes to him and his care. Since losing my job, I have been from waitress to nanny, trying to salvage money.
Last month I was asked to leave my current house because I was assaulted here by the same person who raped me. I have managed to find a house but all of the money I have left has gone to rent. Now I’m panicking and searching for another job like no tomorrow. My mental health is taking its toll and I’ve been scrolling the internet on how to get quick money. I don’t want to resort in selling my body. I’ve already been degraded enough.
I am trying to find a job. I’m trying but I’m scared and I don’t want to be another statistic. If anyone can be kind and spare even £1, it would mean the world to me. I really want to get better and forge a life for myself without hurt and worry. I will do anything in return.
