Dreaming of New School in New York
Stuttering sucks but singing made everything better. It is amazing how a person does not stutter while singing. They taught me that in speech therapy but I think I already knew that because I have been singing all my life.
It is my dream to make a living off of my voice and talents and I truly believe that The New School of Jazz in New York will give me the education and training I need to pursue my dream and reach my goals.
The one thing blocking my path is the crazy cost to attend New School. The total estimated cost including tuition & fees, books & supplies, room & board, and transportation for 2017-18 is $63,770. I received a $4,000 scholarship which brings the total cost to $59,770. I was also awarded $5,500 in federal loans but my ultimate goal is the $59,770. If I can avoid loans at all cost that would be great. All though I have dreams of making it big I know it will take a lot of hard work, and after I graduate there might be times where money is tight.
Well that is it. If you made it all the way here I thank you for taking the time to read about my story. Any help is truly appreciated even if it is just sharing my story. Thanks again!!
New School Audition Video. I was eventually called in for a live audition where I had to sing three songs. I was beyond nervous :-)

Just in case you think this is a hoax : )
My Acceptance Letter
My Financial Aid Award Letter.
I can not believe it has been 6 weeks since I moved to New York and into my dorm. I have been working so hard, studying, working on my voice, making music and started a youtube account. I plan to post more covers and eventually original music.
I wanted to also say thank you again. The money I raised here paid the remaining balance of my tuition. So between the loans, scholarship and your contributions my 1st semester is paid off!!! #Thankful #Blessed #YallCameThru
