I’m looking for a donation to help set out on a new venture in forex trading. I have had many struggles in my life, financial and otherwise. I was diagnose with ADHD and social anxiety when I was younger. I grew up being very shy and not having a lot of friends. School was a big struggle for me, as I had a lot of trouble paying attention and getting work done, always being distracted of what was going on around me.
I had a very domineering, controlling mother growing up, where I felt I never measured up and was defective in some way. She took to me to quite a few psychologists when I was younger. I guess she trying to fix me so that I would perform better in school and act as a normal child. I would get put on medications, but I would always hate the side effects, where I would have trouble falling asleep, not have much of a appetite, and feeling moody. I was only on the medication for a short time and then I stopped taking them.
I managed to get through school, because I guess was naturally intelligent and that allowed me to get by. I had a few failing grades in high school, but I still managed to graduate. I then went to community college, and flunked out my first two semesters. I couldn’t make the adjustment to the college environment, where higher effort was expected and teachers weren’t pestering you or trying to pass you. I was academically seperated from the college for a year and I was working part time at a deli in the mean time. I did good work there, but not something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I went back to community college, put in more effort, got better grades, and was able to graduate with an a.s. in accounting and transfer to a four year school. I graduated from the four school with a b.s. in accounting a few years later.
Then went out and tried to find a job, but was very hard to get a job in accounting with no experience. I eventually found a job doing accounts receivable/payable. But I had trouble remembering the procedural aspects of the job and performed substandard, so I was let go after a week. It was pretty crushing to my confidence. I was still working at the deli part time, and I was still applying to other jobs, even ones outside of accounting. But the economy took a downturn and I had troubles even getting interviews.
I started becoming depressed as I was thinking I wouldn’t find anything that was a good fit for me. I then came across a book on forex trading while in the bookstore. I started browsing through it and then did some research online. I found some forums with professional traders and begin learning from them. I started out on some demo accounts, did well there, and moved to live accounts with what little money I had. But I had trouble building up any capital because I had to use the money to pay for student loans and all my other expenses. I enjoy it because it is something I can do my own, as I’m very introverted and need my own space to operate.
This why I am asking for the $15,000. I’m having to use what money I make right now toward my loans, expenses, and keeping a roof over my head to just get by. Getting this money would really help me to get financially stable and build to a better future. So any donations that could make this possible would make me forever grateful. Thank you for reading my story.
