Need help to survive while I finish my career!!!
I know this might sound weird and even shameless, but believe me when I say this is my last resource, otherwise I wouldn’t be doing this.
I´m Harlyn, a 17 years old student from Colombia, studying to accomplish my dream of being a bilingual or even trilingual teacher in Canada. I´m studying currently in a public university but anyways I have to pay for my studies (approximately 162 dollars every four months) and I´m working hard to apply for a scholarship in Canada (I´ll need to pay the plane tickets, food, accommodations and other needed things). Until now it sounds like me having a life project, but it won´t be possible for me.
Next year I’ll have to move from my parents’ house because they wouldn’t be able to look after me anymore, they have problems with money so I’ll need to find a job and don’t complete my studies. Why? Well, here in Colombia if you are young and don’t have any job experience it’s impossible to find a job. They wouldn’t hire you, and that’s why need to complete my career before I seek for a job. Also, the situation nowadays is really hard, we have the COVID-19 problem and also is difficult because there are being a lot of strikes, cops and governors killing teenagers who decide to protest most of the jobs are closed which makes the situation even worse.
I know it sounds way too much, but I really hope you can help me. I need 30000, which covers: rent, university expenses, food, important services (water, electricity, gas and provisional Wi-Fi), hygiene supplies, transport (to go the university every weekday) for 5 years (my career duration) so I’ll be able to survive while I finish my whole career and then I’ll be able to pay my postgraduate studies abroad and live the rest of my live properly and continue my life project.
I know the quick answer will be “you better go find a job”, but believe me when I say it’s difficult for a teenager in this country and in this situation to find a job to survive by their own without any financial aid while they’re studying. I really want to complete my life project and my studies; it’s the only purpose of my life and I’ll be really tankful if you people could help me with this. I really hope to be an English/French/German teacher in Canada and also hope I can get the help to survive in this country while I’m in the process, you’ll help me really a lot even with small contributions.
