Hi, my name is Fernanda Castillo.  I am a transgender woman who is fleeing transphobia in my home country.   I have been emotionally and physically beaten by the transphobic population and my family members when they refused to accept me as I am.  I have come to this country seeking a new opportunity at life. Currently I am in the asylum process, I was previously detained in a detention center for transwomen. At the moment I am not working, I have to wait 6 months for a work permit.  It is for that reason that I must tell you a little bit about my story and ask for your help because I am in need of assistance.   For example I need hormones, dental care, funds to cover my legal fees, make up, clothes, etc. I am asking for a small donation, every little bit helps.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am going to ESL classes, I would also like to study cosmetology to have a self-satisfying, quality of life and a successful future.   In advance I thank you for taking your valuable time to read my requests and your donations.   Thank you, Fernanda Castillo *********************************************************************************************************** Hola, mi nombre es Fernanda Castillo.  Soy una mujer transgénero que viene huyendo de la transfobia.   He sido golpeada físicamente y emocionalmente por parte de la población y familiares al no aceptarme tal y como soy.  He llegado a este país buscando nuevas oportunidades de vida. Actualmente estoy en mi proceso de asilo, estuve en un centro de detención para chicas trans. Actualmente no estoy trabajando tengo que esperar 6 meses para obtener un permiso de trabajo.  Es por eso que me he dado la obligación de contarles algo de mi historia para contar con ustedes porque ahorita estoy pasando mis necesidades.  Como una bicicleta para ir a la escuela, tratamiento hormonal, cuidado dental, ayuda con los costos legales, maquillaje, ropa, etc. Por eso les pido una donación con lo poco que puedan.  Les agradezco mucho de todo corazón. Estoy llendo a la escuela para aprender Ingles al 100, me gustaria estudiar cosmetologia y pues realizar mi vida para tener un futuro de éxito.  Les agradezco por tomar parte de su tiempo en escuchar mis peticiones de antemano. Gracias, Fernanda Castillo
