Help funding a new computer for young creative

Hello all! I am Auste and here is my brief story.

As far as I can remember I’ve always had a huge interest in various arts and crafts and consider myself lucky enough to be able to pursue my passion from an early age – first at the art school, then the Academy of Arts and eventually studying architecture at one of the best technical universities in the world - Politecnico di Milano.

Although architecture wasn’t the first choice of study field at the beginning, my constant interest in surroundings, places we live in and how people interact with them rather than interact with objects as well as growing environmental issues and future challenges encouraged me to gradually switch from design of objects to the design of buildings and environment. My specific focus lately has been on how these closely linked subjects influence society and urban environment and more importantly how they will shape our future. As I am currently finishing my Master’s degree I intend to continue my research throughout my professional career and focus on sustainable and innovative tools to transform our cities into smart and eco-friendly future hubs.

Architecture is one of those fields where a good computer is rather a necessity than an aide and as much as hard-working and creative I am in real life, here is where I am being stopped. The old Asus laptop I bought years ago is no longer capable of keeping up with my wishes, goals and abilities, especially when it comes to working with demanding software used in computational and parametric design – a must for my thesis.

A new proper computer with requirements needed for my research would cost around 1000 euros or more. Unfortunately, this amount is too big for me since I am living on my own and have to cover all other living expenses, and at the moment I cannot afford to buy it myself.

Yes, as many other people here I do understand there are thousands and thousands of people more in need of financial help and my request might stay unnoticed, but I am a huge believer in the "positive mind brings positive outcome" and that a good deed one made will be returned back one way or another.
