This is Laura Zamora, an art-school grad, printmaker and apparent crudité enthusiast who has been trying since last summer to scrape together $2,500 to hightail it out of her dad’s house in Montgomery, AL. Where does this self-described purveyor of “mediocre” art want to move? Brooklyn of course, the Holy Land for underfunded young creatives. This we know because she has launched an Etsy campaign to raise the required funds. “If you could spare a dollar or two, please purchase a share of my hopes and dreams for just $1!” she writes. However, “you don’t have to donate anything, even a word of encouragement would help!” So Brokelyn hivemind… does anyone have any such words for this aspiring Brooklynite? Is this photo really working for her? Is $2,500 enough to land the one-bedroom apartment she wants? Would you shell out a hard-earned one-spot to help her? Why or why not?
