Second photo is my art.
Hello, my name is Andria. I live in Bronx, New York. I was hoping to receive funds that could help me purchase an Apple iPad Mini 5. Or donate their used iPad Mini 5 for free. Here’s a bit about myself: I really want to draw and creatively express myself through digital art. As long as I can remember, I’ve always had a passion for drawing and coloring and anything that involves using creativity and imagination.
I want an iPad to create art, whether it be through drawing, photography, or writing. I have many hobbies that can be utilized and fulfilled through an iPad.
Since I’ve been struggling with generalized anxiety disorder and depression since I was a child, it’s not a surprise that a roller coaster of emotions and obstacles that have contributed to my delay and hesitation in vital experiences of personal growth. I have been seeking employment for quite a while now with my last job being in 2014.
The following year I decided to embark on college. It was something I was terrified of doing. I didn’t believe I could do it, but I did make it through about 2 years worth of semesters attempting my Associate’s Degree. To make a long story short, it went okay until it didn’t and my grades suffered. I do plan to continue my education down the line.
Over the last few years I’ve dipped myself into self-care mode and have sought out therapy for my mental health. This is a step I should have taken years ago and I regret not taking it sooner.
Therapy has helped quite a lot and has motivated me to focus on my physical health, (which I’ve neglected for years), as well as my mental health. It has been a difficult process to begin seeing a medical doctor again for my physical health. I have a few health issues that have been neglected and are causing me a lot of physical pain. It has been a slow, crawling and tedious process. I have to face my body and actually see it with a new perspective I haven’t felt in years. In attempting to fix the damage I’ve done, I realized my love for my body has to be stronger than it ever was before. I have to want to be healthier and begin loving myself in a different and strange way to be motivated enough to care and maintain my health.
Also currently I’m focusing on my interpersonal relationships as well as building my self-esteem and confidence. I see some changes in my willingness to try new things, use my voice to air my opinions, and most recently see a positive change in my anxiety and depression. I am calmer and less likely to dwell on negative thoughts or actions.
Drawing and coloring has been a large part in my therapy since it helped me distract my mind into focusing on positive things rather than getting stuck in negative spirals of mean self-loathing and hatred and anxiety. I love coloring books, apps, and am in the process of making a quote book with lots of pretty stickers! I love using different forms of art tools whether it be paint, digital art, pencils, pastels, and crayons. Make-up is also another form of art I love using.
I guess all of the therapy began after my father moved away and stopped financially supporting my family and I about 3 years ago. It was a total shock and a terrible experience of abandonment. It forced me to really look at myself and begin changing. We are currently still struggling financially and are barely making it through all the bills every month. You can also donate money for necessities as well, but I won’t add that as a must.
I am the youngest in my family and is practically the only one expected to provide for us in the immediate family. I am in my late 20’s and it is only natural that I should have a career by now, but I’m only just beginning to feel healthy and mentally stable enough to begin working a full time job. I am trying my best to keep up with my medical appointments and mental health appointments as well as going on job interviews and seeking out other career resources.
That is where I am at this point in my life and I just hope someone or multiple can help me release my imagination through the amazing technology of Apple. ;)
I am also very willing to accept an iPad 6th Generation or iPad mini 5(new or used) mailed to me instead of giving funds via PayPal if you are worried that I will use the money for something else or whatever..lol..
