Hey guys, my name is Beatriz and I’m a 17 year old girl living in Scotland with my family. As you can tell by my name, i’m not from here.
I’m portuguese, I was born and lived there until the age of 13 which by then, my family had to move. My dad is a dentist and when Portugal started having economic problems, so did we. His salary was decreased by half and we started struggling a lot with bills. Right now, we have about £150K left to pay for our house in Portugal, which we are trying to sell at the moment but we’re not the only ones struggling money wise.
When we came to Scotland we moved into a 1 bedroom flat, currently I sleep with my brothers in the bedroom and my parents sleep in a bed couch in the living room, although these aren’t the best conditions for 5 people to live in we put up with it because it was the best we could do without starting to struggle money wise again.
My family and I are now down to one month left until we have to leave our house and so far, although all of us have worked as hard as we could, we do not have enough money to move just yet. Please please please guys I beg you, if you can PLEASE donate to us through this page: http://www.gofundme.com/nyncdo or to my paypal firstname.lastname@example.org even a simple £5 can make a huge difference. Thank you.
