New Phone!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot to me!

Hello! my name Jayme and I'm turning 16 on Oct 10, 2020. I have many goals in life, one of them is writing a book and publishing it. The topic would most likely be something about politics or a social change movement of some sort. As you can already guess my favourite things to do are reading, writing, math because it's so fun, and studying or learning about political things such as current events, movements, political theories...etc. 

For a while, I was saving up for a new phone/ accessories, things that would definitely make my life a lot easier. I had about half of the funds collected, and I was so hopeful that my goal would be reached to get this dream phone.

However once COVID-19 reached Canada, my mother and I lost our jobs, causing some money shortages. I at the time worked for a tax company and I was the receptionist, I answered all the calls, handled clients, printing/copying, etc. I actually quite enjoyed that job because the tax professionals there would sometimes teach me a bit on how to do taxes when it was dead in the office. I'm not quite sure what I want to do for a career- something that involves math for sure, that job opened my eyes to a whole new undiscovered and unexpected interest of mine. Anyways back to what I was saying... 

My mother works long hours and 3 jobs, she works hard to provide food and a roof for my brother and i. Money before when COVID-19 hit was already tight, but once my mother lost one of her cleaning jobs, we fell short on funds for rent, grocery and other necessities. Because I had almost a thousand saved up, we started dipping in on my savings so we had enough to cover everything. Eventually, as expected we ran out of money, luckily for the next money of two my mother was able to borrow money off some of her friends. luckily my mother has recently found a new job to fill in the missing money. I'm in the process of getting a job but so far, no good luck.

For a while now I've been using my old cracked iPhone 6, which has the lowest amount of storage- 16GB which is actually brutal. I'm only asking for 1650 to cover the phone and the extra to cover maybe a month or two of my phone plan. It would be so helpful if I could reach my goal and get a birthday or Christmas present for myself of these items.
