A Man's Promise to his Future
Organized by: Roger Yangali
I'm a 25 year old boy Muslim convert boy, who happened to fall in love in 2012 with the woman of his dreams, Egyptian Muslim. I used to live in Virginia, where I studied at Northern Virginia Community College for 2 years. I graduated NOVA with my Associate Degree, but I had to leave the country because continuing my studies in America was more expensive than I had imagined, and my dad had just been struck with a severe economic crisis in Ecuador. Needless to say I had to leave America in 2014. At first I thought all I felt for this girl was lust. I tried to take her out my mind, day by day. I started running, I started working out, and little did I know, it was her image in my head giving me strenght to push myself harder every day. It wasn't until this year 2016 that I couldn't deny my feelings anymore. I dont know why, but I just can't get her out my mind. I feel like her and I where married before in a past life or something. When I was with someone else, I always felt alone, empty, and unsatisfied, but with her, I just have to see her smile or that look on her face, and I feel like the most complete person in this entire world. I began talking to her in 2015. She didn't like me that much, it was more of a friends relationship. I decided I would try to win her love, because I realized that without her, I wouldn't be able to be complete. I really don't know what it is, what drives me to want to give up everything for her, but I know that if my feelings are this strong, its not just for anything. Shes my why. Shes the reason I wake up everyday and hit the books, shes the reason I keep going when I feel like quitting when I workout or when I get bad grades, shes the reason I don't quit, shes the reason I won't quit! Shes my why, and it's been a long time since I have been just quietly planning to surprise her. I would like to plan a visit to Virginia for next year during my vacations from University. I'm planning on talking to her, and asking her dad to allow me to be the happiest man in this world, by allowing his daughter to marry me, or at least get engaged. The amount I'm trying to raise would be more than enough to pay for the ticket to go to Virginia and back to my country. I would be able to find a nice engagement ring for her. And I would be able to take her out and treat her to something nice for at least a week. Like I said, shes my why, and I'm tired of feeling like I belong with her and not doing anything about it. I was hoping maybe I could help raise some money faster by trying this website. I am currently studying and working, saving every penny as possible to get me to see her at least once more inshaallah. Someone once told me "Find what it is you love, and go after it." This is me going after her. One way or another, I will marry this woman.
