Ciao!!
In around 3 weeks I'll be moving to Italy! Calabria!
WHY?? So many Italians ask me? Its an area of high unemployment, low population, organised crime and... "Africans"...

Well. I've signed up to do 2 weeks voluntary work helping at a refugee center in a tiny village where the population was so low the mayor began to give houses to refugees to stop the place becoming a ghost town. Refugees are welcome in this area. I'll be helping with things like childcare, teaching English to teens and adults, art workshops... and helping people stay motivated. I'm paying a lot of money for this chance- helping refugees- unless you work for UNHCR or another group is a self-funded mission. I managed to raise over £2000 by selling my art work.

I am also moving there for selfish reasons. I want to learn new languages, meet new people, start my life over without the burden of *hoarded junk" I've collected over the years. 

I'm super excited but also taking a huge chance on life. I haven't sorted a job out yet, I think its the kind of place where I'll have to find work in person. So I'm taking all my handmade jewellery and will be selling it there. 

When I'm more settled I'll start the comic again, it really helps me process things. 
I wanna do it digitally now, if possible. I'm hoping to work freelance when over there too, so I'll need to start using Adobe programs on my new laptop. Money from Patreon will go to helping me pay for that until I get regular work.

Really appreciate the support I've had so far. Helped me keep it together during a very difficult part of my life. I wouldn't be able to start this new part of my life if I hadn't used this comic as a kind of therapy.  

Grazie mille Amici :) xxx

Thanks for all the support you've given me so far!

This next part of my journey is very open. I have very vague plans until I'm there and find out what my options are.
Aside from the comic, I also write a blog and have various Instagrams one of which is all food based. I'm hoping to make the most of all my skills. 
I don't have a fall back option, I have to make the most of myself. I don't have family with credit cards I can ask for support, or family in general right now (don't ask, not pretty)
Support from this website could really help me avoid a bad situation. I'm confident in ability to survive! With extra money I can most definitely keep the comic going and take it to another level! Thanks!!! Please forgive the vagueness :p xx
