Hi, I hope you have a beautiful day- Give me 10 min, so I would like to explain you my situation and why I came here for a little bit of your support. I'm Anderson, 23, I live in Venezuela, I graduated High School 4 years ago, I grew up learning my father’s profession (Graphic Designing)(thanks god); Venezuela lives under socialism, the government brought us down these last 17 years, Venezuela's economic situation is just terrible our salary is 10USD/month our inflation rate is the highest in the world, We can't even buy food, we need to make a line of 400 or more people, every day just to buy cheese, meat, deodorant soap, or whatever is in the supermarket that day you went, because each one of us has a number (Last number of ID), that day of the week you are able go to buy in the supermarket, so you need to make a decision whether you go and (try buy food) or lost a day of work, Caracas the capital, is the city with more violence (in the world), Leaving mine, Ciudad guayana 2015 on 12th position (in the world), we are not allow to protest on the street, we need to ask for permission, students are the ones who protest pacifically but still the receive violence in exchange from Police, Military and so on, who are supporting the government(dictator) women are being disrespected, kids are starving , old people also are suffering because, they don’t have their pensions, and they don’t find jobs, we cannot go out even to take lunch or taking a bus normally, we are always afraid of being victims of a robbery, we need to save 5 salaries just buy a pair of shoes, I started college (graphic design) the moment I ended High School, unfortunately I couldn’t pay it anymore, so I saw myself forced to quiet and move back with my parents, I have two jobs one is in a Studio And the other one is a butch Store, the first one I love cause is the most related thing of what I want study, but the other one is being a little bit difficult cause I'm vegetarian, but I've tried handle it cause I need the money to at least bring food to the table, I haven't quieted my desires to study in fact I focused on another passion of mine that are languages, I learned English, German watching TV and chatting with bilingual people, or from another countries. My wish of freedom is bigger, I’m tired of being scare while a work on street, and not having a proper education, being incapable of express my rights, my religion and my politic opinion, is just frustrating being held in your home, and to see how things that one time were just a basics stuff (soap, cleaned water, food, corn, and rice sugar, etc.) not is a privilege having it in the cabinet of our kitchens. These years I've been doing my paperwork, to move out of this country although I have my family here (father, mother, and a little brother), I need to go to get a brighter future or at least try and then help my family as much as I can. I did my research, about where can I go, and after a lot of searching I found Argentina, Buenos Aires, where I’m able to get my work permission and studies permission, I found that Buenos Aires University, is a Public university, so it's free. The life’s quality is good and money although is not that much, it really helps you to move on and have a proper life, and have a good education and formation. that I amount I'm asking is to get at least 1 month of rent, and deposit, some food and money to buy the bus ticket, and to have some saved up when I start college, until I find a job. And I can help my family. I would really appreciate your help from the bottom of my heart, and more than money if it is not at you reach, I would ask you then please share this, so at least people outside will know how Venezuelans are leaving even worse than Haiti. I apologize for my English; it is not my first language so I might have some typos, I wish you have a nice day.
