Gabriel leaves you this message:
Hi there! My name is Gabriel and I'm from Caracas, Venezuela.
Venezuela is a beautiful country blessed for its geographical position with the best beaches of the Caribbean, the nicest weather that doesn't experience seasons, all the beautiful natural landscapes, the friendliest people...And yet I want to leave.
Venezuela is currently experiencing the worst economic, social and political crisis of its history due to a government that has been in power (By force) for more than 19 years.
Eventhough we have big problems like shortage of food and medicine, what worries me the most is that Caracas, the city where I currently live, is ranked as the MOST violent and dangerous city in the world with the highest murder rate per capita (even higher than countries in war).
That's what dragged me to search ways of leaving and just recently (after 3 years) I have the opportunity of going to Puerto Rico and accomplishing one of my dreams: study nursing and then medicine.
Going to PR is my chance of getting away from the danger of Caracas, while studying Medicine to be able to become a person that can later on help more people in Venezuela or any other part of the world.
I currently work as an online Spanish Tutor and that's how I'm able to finance part of my trip, but I'm still having trouble to pay the tuition.
I intend to study and continue working to pay for my life expenses and part of the tuition, get as much scolarships as possible and well... do whatever it takes.
The help you could give me today would release a little bit of pressure and allow me to pursue my dreams, help my family and later on, helping others.
ANY donation, no matter how big or small, is going to be more than welcomed, appreciated and used to cover part of my tuition.
Please, if possible, also share this with your family and friends: remember that if we reach more people, we can grow bigger!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and helping me. You rock!
