Help Sky Replace their Charred Car

52020010_1603210181539340_r.jpegHello everyone I go by Sky. I’m a Hispanic non binary person. I’ve lived in Tennessee my whole life and the color of my skin and identity has always felt like a constant battle. For a long time I didn’t really speak or identify with my native Mexican heritage and in way tried to be more American. And a bigger struggle in my life was realizing I was more feminine than masculine. I grew up in a small town so the idea of ever wearing women’s clothes or telling people I was attracted to men terrified me. I knew the stories and I knew how badly kids would get bullied for it. It wasn’t until I moved to Memphis I began to realize my identity more and even became more spiritually connected to my heritage. I feel a sense of guilt for denying who I was but I’m learning to let go of that as I learn to love my true self more.
For a good while I had been struggling to find a home in Memphis so I saved up enough to by a camper in Ohio with the help of a friend. While out here on my way back to my campsite my car got stuck in some mud. By some fucked up act from god (maybe) my car burst into flames and exploded while trying to move it out of the mud. I lost most of my personal belongings because I made the mistake of not moving them into the camper. I lost my skateboard, camera, generator and most of my clothes and a lot gifts from my friends. While a finally have a home I lost my only form of transportation. I’m asking for any help to get some wheels so I can get back to Memphis. I’m currently looking for work in Ohio so hopefully I can be back soon
