Hi everyone, I’m Francesca, I’m originally from Peru and have been living in the states for the past 8 years. Unfortunately, my legal status is tricky at the moment. I came to the states at 14 to stay with some family members, but that quickly didn’t work out and had to leave the house due to the mental abuse I was going through. I’ve been on my own ever since 17, working and making ends meet. The fact that I’m struggle w my paperwork makes it harder for me to find a job, but I’ve always managed. I’ve always looked after myself, as I don’t have anybody to look after me (all of my direct family is back in Peru, and unfortunately unable to help me monetarily). This time I’m asking for help, because as I’ve said, I’ve always had to just get up and move, regardless of how I might be feeling, and believe me, when your situation isn’t ideal, sometimes you just don’t want to keep moving. Please help me stay here, relocate back to what has become my home, in NYC. And to be able to keep buying supplies for what’s my dream, becoming a tattoo artist. I know there’s many stories out there, about many people that struggle like me. I am not the only one. But I will surely and very thankfully accept your donations, as I said it would just go to me being able to get a new place, help buy tools for my tattooing & hopefully to try to go back to school and get the degree on business that I’ve been aiming for. I’d also use part of it for therapy, as I’ve been dealing with depression for as long as I can remember, and since I don’t have insurance it’s just so expensive, I can’t afford it. I really really will appreciate it. I want to believe that my situation doesn’t have to stop me from getting what I want and dream for. I want to get better mentally and get through the hurdles life has had for me. I’m strong, I’m simply not of steel. Thank you so much for reading.
