Thank you for visiting my college fundraising page! I have been put in the awkward position of asking for donations so that I can attend CalArts. I spent the past few years working up to getting accepted at CalArts. Rejection and disappointment were plentiful, but after a lot of hard work, I'm finally here, as a Music Composition student! Yay!
Thanks to all who donated this summer, allowing me to attend the first semester! After much fighting, I was able to secure some additional aid, but I still owe $3,500 towards 2nd semester. This amount is not counting what I must pay for housing and food.
I am only asking for help from you as a last resort, as a way to accomplish my dream. Any amount, even just a penny, is great. (Some of the donation prize levels are a little goofy, but I thought they'd be fun)! If you would prefer to provide a loan instead of a donation, just let me know, and I will sign an agreement to pay you back after I graduate. If you would provide help by cosigning a loan, that would work too. Anything is greatly appreciated, as tuition is still a real struggle, and I don't want to be forced to withdraw.
Through my CalArts education, I will develop the skills to succeed as a performer and composer, creating new contributions, especially to Jazz/Indian Classical fusion, allowing me to give back to the musical world.
