Hello! My names Ramona.. and this is my story.
It all started when I was 16. I was at that magical age where dreams actually matter and no one is telling you to settle for a 9 – 5 job for the next 40 years. No, that kind of thinking would come 2 years later. But I was young, naïve. The world was my oyster and that’s when I promise my bestfriend, aka my brother, that we would move to the city and conquer our dreams!
It wasn’t easy, but at 20 years old, we made the move! We didn’t have support from our parents. They always believed that small town life was the way to go and that there was no shame in falling into the typical cycles. When they heard we had secured an apartment.. let’s just say it’ll be a while before they visit. Our friends, the few we had, said they’d miss us and visit every chance they had. They were supposed to help us move our things that weekend, but wouldn’t you know it, they never showed up.
So yes. Life is hard. And the risks are high. But our dreams are big and our ambition is great. Because of that, we might just make it.
