A New Beginning

In 2007, I was involved in a near death accident which damaged my skull. I also live with mental disabilities, BPD or Boderline Personality Disorder. Lastly, on April 2019, I was diagnosed with Cancer and Autoimmune Chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis. Even with all of these, I still have a dream and I have challenged myself to live to the fullest and celebrate my life.

I have some savings but not enough to pay for my journey and to fulfill the final items on my wish list. The money raised will be used towards four things I must accomplish before my health fails and controls me.

To begin with, I will be giving up my rented home on May 2020. I have already starting to sell everything I own. Money raised from this will get me my ticket towards a new beginning..

I will be backpacking and couch surfing to any destination that will allow me to work, volunteer, etc., earn a little money, and move on to my next destination. I will keep doing this till I find a place where I will be allowed to stay for home and start a new beginning. (I was suppose to travel 30th of April; however, plans have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and community lock downs. I will travel when it is safe. Safety comes first and I take this lock down seriously. I hope all are taking extra precautions for their own safety.

Airfunding To My Next Destination

Ultimately my goals are:

❤️ Visit UK to attend my daughter's graduation this summer and rebuild my relationship with her. She practically grew up without a mom's affection. We were separated when she was 8 years old due to my divorce with her father. Now at 19, I just wish to be closer to her and hopefully, someday, she will accept my affection and return for my embrace.

❤️ #Backpack and Travel across Europe. I am a #couchsurfer and a budget traveler. I wish to travel, enjoy adventures, study art, and photograph this beautiful world all while contributing back to the community by volunteering wherever I can before I am wheelchair-bound. I wish to learn different or various forms of art and hope to do this while I travel and do a bit of volunteering in art galleries, schools, etc. where I can gain some experience and skills.

❤️ Another on my list is The Arctic Circle and KAKSLAUTTANEN (The Glass Igloo Resort in Saariselka, Finland) to capture the Northern Lights Aurora Borealis.

❤️ Return back to school and complete my education. I gave up as a teenager due to family responsibilities when my dad left. The fund raised will be used to purchase a student work visa for relocation and for beginning a new chapter in my life.

Thank you for taking time in reading this. I am grateful and I appreciate your kindness and generous support.
