Freelance Graphic Designer

As an undocumented American, finding work before COVID-19 was already difficult, however, as we were placed under lockdown it has been nearly impossible to make ends meet. During quarantine, I decided to use my skills as a graphic designer to create artwork for clients ranging from logos, brochures and flyers. Yet, its been difficult to make money on a consistent basis.

Waiter at Kellog’s diner

I entered the U.S. in 2017 legally.
I decided to stay to live in the US. While trying to find a job I was spending my money, my family owns a company for windows door and locks back in my home country Montenegro. Most of the time until April 2019 I was spending money that I saved back home. In 2019 I started working as a waiter at Kellogs diner in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I served the community with dignity and pride, it was my honor to be a part of the Brooklyn community and contributing to the society. Everything was perfect until Covid started. My last working day at Kellogs was March 12th 2020. It has been a real struggle since then. I wasn’t working for 8 months and in the meantime I got in dept around 25.000$.
I started working for a cable company called ‘Connect US’, worked for about 4 months and I had to stop doing that job too because I wasn’t able to make an appointment at DMV for a driving license. Also Covid related problem.
I have troubles with my landlord, sometimes I don’t have enough money for food. I’m getting married soon, my girlfriend is an American citizen and I will apply for SSID and work authorization. But now I really need help.
