I am a final year student at Central Saint Martins. I am half Russian half Italian and this year has been rather tough in many aspects. We had Russia freezing all of our money. Just like that. Woke up- everything is frozen. A bit of a scary feeling at first when you are not really sure how to go about your ay. But then you learn as you go and try to do your best. I have learned a lot about friendships, values and humanity, really.
I need to pay the last installment of my university by February the 23rd. If i dont- I will ge suspended from the course.
I would like to build a good name in the industry and keep it clean. I would also like to get a studio and connect people together there so that they could work and do what they love and move forward into the industry. Not many can afford an art school now. It's become this luxury. It shouldn't be this way.
I was selected for Lora Piana award and to work on a brief with them. And because I didn't have enough money on expences they've picked another student. Just shows how everything evolves around money. It's a shame really.
My nonno told me once, when you find something good, you have to take care of it. You have to let it grow.
I would have never asked for a borrow at all. I never did. But, I just really need a day to breath. And I am in a very cornered so to say situation.
I please ask you to help if you can at all. I woud appreciate any help. Even just a good thought. And as soon as I am back on my feet I give you my word that you can count on me if any of you ever find yourself in any trouble or difficult situation.
Thank you, thank you thank you so much!
