Hi, My name is Antonia. I’m posting on this site because I’m in desperate need for help paying my rent and a couple of bills (water/electric). I know there are a lot of people asking for help, and I feel like most of them are more deserving than myself. But I figure it doesn’t hurt to ask, as I’m kind of at the end of my rope, not sure what else to do. So here’s my story:
I started working as an Assistant Manager of a coffee shop setting up in the UAE I had first class training and absolutely loved my job, it was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had then I was used to fill in as the manager for 8 months. During this time I was told I’d get a bonus once a manager was hired.. As I was working 7 day weeks and never took a days holiday or sick day.
A week after finally hiring a store manager, we were all called to a meeting and told redundancies were going to be made. The next day I was called to a meeting and withing 4 days I was out. They only gave me 4 days notice and a week’s pay.
I never saw myself being in this position I have signed a lease on my dream flat in the city and life seemed to just be starting, and well now I’m not so sure.
Throughout April I have been trying to find odds and ends jobs, and in all my free time I’ve been applying to part-time and full-time positions in pretty much any place I could find a posting. I have been able to pay full rent for March yet, and now I owe April rent. And pretty soon, I’ll have to pay May rent too. That is, unless my landlord evicts me, which they can do if I can’t come up with the money for April and May.
I have gone to a fair few interviews, and follow ups, and even done a few trial shifts and am hoping something comes through soon. I am a hard worker and I know I can get through this if I can find a way to pay all my rent and bills for the month coming, I just need a little more time to get back on my feet. I really need to be able to come up with £2700 but I am hoping I can find a small job in the next weeks that will help me pay for a chunk of this.
So here I am, on this site. Desperate for someone to help me out. Anything will help! I’d also like to think that maybe I could try to repay you, or at least pass it forward when I’m back on my feet. If that’s an option for you, leave your name and contact/email and I can reach out. At the least I’d like to thank you.
PayPal.me/cherrypops13 if you can help in anyway
My most sincere regards
