Skippa's H.O.P.E.S & D.R.E.A.M.S

For those of you who know me we well, know that I'm not big on telling people it's my birthday and going out of the way to celebrate it. However, this year is a little different. I am turning the big 3-0 and I want to celebrate it by going back to school. If you don't know my story about college, long story short I wasn't able to finish because of financial reasons. For the past 10 years I have been hoping to make it back and now I'm as close as ever, but I need your help! I was able to get financial aid, but now I am $9,000 shy of being able to pay for tuition so I'd greatly appreciate if you joined my "Give me 10!" project. It's where I am working to get 300 people to give $10.00 and also get them to ask 2 of their friends for $10.

The school I would like to attend is Tribeca Flashpoint Academy. It's affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival and gives students the best education for film and broadcasting (which I hope to major in). Their students actually work on Hollywood movies while they are in school! Most students leave the school working for major film companies and major media markets. After graduating, I plan on utilizing my knowledge to support many community efforts. My mission is to provide a solution to the lack of social creativity existing within our community through exposure to progressive live entertainment experiences with a unique quality of talent and events. I am determined to encourage my community to exercise their creative muscles by participating in this creative process by breathing life into an art form rich in tradition while also combining state of the art technology.

The "Give Me 10!" project would be a great way for you to support my H.O.P.E.S and D.R.E.A.M.S. (Helping Our People Educate Skippa and Determined Relentless Efforts Always Means Success.) Joining will give you a front row seat to my journey through school. Through monthly blogs and Vlogs you will be able to follow my success every step of the way. You will get exclusive access to viewings, raffles, and more information about my many community projects. One specifically that I am really excited about is H.O.P.E.S (Hearing Our People's Extraordinary Stories). I wont be able to do this without your help though, so please consider coming along this journey with me!
