This is the final post in a series of posts by Tamara, a Girls Gone Global member. Tamara had confided in the members of the group at one of her low points in life, and she received tons of support along the way, which helped her turn her life around.
Part 3: I’m finally on the right track of life, and it’s thanks to you girls
November 11th, 2018
Living in Singapore has been one of the happiest times of my life. I want to thank, yes, once again, all the GGG ladies for their incredible support. Especially my friend Kai, who I met through the group, who gave me the tools to start my life in Singapore as a waitress with a place to stay for about ten days.
I am happy.
At the end of my first trimester, I finished with all A’s in my courses! I have many close friends who care for me, we have a lot of fun going out, talking, or playing, as well as studying and supporting each other. I have an incredible paid internship on a topic that I care about with a friendly, smart, and understanding boss. I also met Alyne, Nas, and Agon, which made my year! I also met GGG’s Singaporean group, who are a bunch of strong and amazing women. And three days ago the Dean from my school contacted me to offer me to work for him as a part time student research assistant! How did this even happen!?
I am beyond grateful! My life has been turned around in less than a year from nothing to everything that I could have ever dreamt of! Even when this master’s degree ends, now I know what I have to do, and I have all of these people surrounding me that I can count on (and they on me). I will keep working hard, taking advantage of all opportunities that are presented to me.
Thank you Alyne, because Girls Gone Global has impacted my life in ways I could not have imagined.
To all ladies out there still struggling. Just keep trying. Do not feel afraid to ask for help. I promise it gets better.
