I am an international student from Buenos Aires, Argentina living on my own in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My parents can only help me with so much money from home because the currency is really complicated at the moment (it’s ranging anywhere from $1USD = $10-$5.99 Argentine Pesos) I am only allowed…
Think about it as I could be your quitting plan. Instead of buying a pack of smokes, donate 5$ so I can educate myself in this amazing opportunity that I have to study across the world.
Think about it as the fact that if you donate the desired amount, you will get a handmade knitted hat (made by me, yes!) in the mail along with a personal Thank You card. Because if you are to support my brain being educated, then I’ll support your brain being warm.
Think about it as a reminder that international students are lucky until they actually have to pay for stuff. WE don’t get any financial aid, loans, grants or anything like that.
Think about it as the fact that my parents can’t really help me right now because the currency is US$1 = $7 in my country. This means, every $10 simple dollars they want to give me, its 70 bucks for them.
I dont want you to feel sorry for me, I just want you to be aware and help so I can get my studies done here in the US, and go back home with an amazing college and life experience .
