I wrote a lot of blog posts so far, but this is probably the toughest one for me
This post is not about extensions, it’s about me…
I’m a person who likes giving things to other people for free without benefiting from it in any way. And I like the idea of enriching people’s life all over the world.
I believe in a social world, where people like to help each other and do whatever they can to support those who can’t solve issues themselves.
What I don’t like, however, is having to beg for help. And although I struggled, there’s no other option left for me but doing so now…
In 2008, after I graduated from school, I had to decide what to do for a living. The decision I made brought me in a whole lot of trouble now:
I wanted to become a Pilot. And I did.
A Pilot’s job training costs a vast amount of money (I’m talking about an upper 5-digit number here), which – in most cases – has to be paid by the flight student – me.
You have to fight for you dream, right? So did I. I paid.
Now there’s just one problem: After having finished my job training, I applied throughout the whole country, but hiring situation got worse shortly before the end of my training and now there are so many applicants for each open position, that I didn’t get a single invitation to a job interview to any of my applications.
I didn’t only get no job, but I got no chance!
I’m out of training for about 2 years now already and chances to get a job are next to zero and deteriorating even further. Meanwhile, besides keeping sending applications out whenever I spot a new job offer, I started studying computer science to ensure that I will eventually get a job somewhere.
But there’s my loan!
I’m out of ideas. I asked the bank to delay payments until I found a job, but they are refusing to do so without a concrete job offer.
And that’s why I wrote this post.
I need to pay my loan back to escape bankruptcy, I need to pay my living expenses and I’m hoping that you guys can give me a hand with it.
So, to get to the point, I hereby ask everybody reading this post:
Whoever can afford to donate some money, please, help me!
It doesn’t have to be a big amount and I don’t want anybody to donate who needs to think twice about spending every Euro themselves. Spread the word about it instead.
But if everybody who reads this and is capable to share a bit of his wealth will contribute a bit, it may work out.
Give it a thought and do something good today.
Thanks to all of you reading my story and helping me start over and having a perspective to look forward again.
