I Moved to LA On My Own to Pursue My Dreams, but Now My Union is on Strike & I'll Soon Be Evicted!
I am a single female living in Los Angeles. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I come from a big family of 6. I recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon University where I received a full ride and earned my bachelor's in fine arts. After graduation, I moved out to Los Angeles on my own with no support system. Since then, I've managed to gain momentum working as an entertainment professional within the SAG union.
I work directly in the entertainment industry and due to the sudden and ongoing work stoppage (WGA and SAG strike), I have struggled to stay on top of my bills. The project I was working on is now at a standstill and unfortunately, it means that I now live paycheck to paycheck.
I am asking for assistance with my rent. This kindness will help me catch up and restore my sense of stability. It will give me a chance to start building emergency savings and get the rest of my bills up to date. I aspire to make a difference in the world and in the lives of others, and this would make such a tremendous impact on me.
