Hey, you might know me as the non binary person that obsessively curates Black art/Black theory on your Tumblr dash, and more scarcely, your Twitter feed. I have been asking for financial help quite a lot those past few weeks, and this campaign is an attempt to have my needs met so I don't ask for a foreseeable amount of time. I am currently financially dependent on my family, which is a complicated situation especially as my father is currently the lone breadwinner.

What is the money for ?

Well, I have been suffering from debilitating OCD for quite a while, and it's been recommended by my psychiatrist that I have an intensive CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), which means one session each week for about six months. Each session currently costs 60$, and this basically means that I'll be spending 1560 $ overall. So a big part of the money would go to covering the cost of therapy. I also will need money for transportation over there, which will be around 300$.

I also intend to start a freelance writing career and to acquire new skills such as video editing/graphic design, which means I'll need a better computer than the one I am currently using. I'll be spending 800$ to 1000$ on a new computer.

I would also like to buy a camera to start photography, and the price I'm looking at is 500$.

I'm looking to improve my skillset in order to be a more solid and more attractive freelancer. I can do that by taking online courses in places like Udemy and Lynda/LinkedIn Learning, and I need 1000$ to cover the cost of all I want to learn.

Finally, I would use the remainder of the money to feed myself, as I'm having deeply disruptive sensorial issues with the food I consume at home, which sometimes means I skip meals or/and throw up, which isn't sustainable in the long run.

This isn't the first time I turn to my community for help, but this is the first time I do this in such a form. If you feel like I am deserving of your financial support, you can participate to this campaign. Thank you in advance for spreading the word and/or donating.
