My name is Felipe Hinojosa, I’m 26 years old. I was born in Chile and have been living in Berlin by myself during the last year.

I'm currently a student at a business school awarded with a scholarship for the tuition fees of a master program at ESMT. Sadly, because of my current economical situation and the struggling with life expenses and to live self-financed I'm not able to continue my studies and might be forced to quit from my studies at the beginning of February 2017.

My friends and family gives me completely support but due to the economical status of my family they are not allowed to support me financially to keep on study. During the years I've learnt how to overcome all kind of economic issues and keep on improving my studies through work and academic excellence. This year I invested my savings in paying my enrollement fee so I thought I might be able to study and mitigate the further expenses through working part time. This idea has not worked since I haven't been able to found a part time job or working student job during the last weeks; also getting rejections because of my availability, my higher qualifications or simply other reasons.

I don't want to give up but I find myself handcuffed since the last month I already ran out of money, not allowing me to even handle my expenses on health insurance. I have heard from some people about this crowdfunding and decided to also give it a try.

My goal is to be able to pay for my rent and living costs while being able to continue my studies for the next two months, pay my residence permit and pay my debts on health insurance before I start the internship period, when I might be able to finance myself again. Sadly as an non-EU citizen and also in a private school I am not able to access other loans, financial aids or BaföG.

My biggest motivations on continuing my studies are to have the possibility to access to a better job market and get a job in the fields that I like such as project management, value chain, innovation and technology development. The first months studying in this program have shown me how this perfectly fits to me.

If you can miss any money, I would really to appreciate any donation! If you are willing to help me out, I will send you a personal thank you or another reward that I will try to relate to my studies or my abilities to give back to the community in this city or even according to my background as an engineer. I will run this crowdfunding to raise the money as fast as possible in the hope that I’ll be able to use it in February 2017.

Please feel free to contact me for anything you might need to know or would like to help at felipe.hinojosa.prado@gmail.comBest regards and thank you very much, I won't give up.
