Kaila --> San Francisco

It's me, Kaila Rose Parrish. I am here, in spirit, on this computer screen, asking you for help. I want to study visual art at the San Francisco Art Institute in California. The reasons I am so set on this school are because of its international position in the art and cultural world, because of its encouragement of interdisiplinarity, because I believe that I have something to say, and because it just feels right for me. I have been accepted, welcomed, and I am so close to attending, minus one big factor. My family and I are not able to pay for $20,000, of the cost of attendance as of right now.
I believe that it is important to ask for help when you need it, and I also believe that help will come if you ask.
Ways you can help can include: giving me a big hug, suggesting other ways to make any amount of money, just believing in me and seeing me there next year, and especially donating any amount of money (big or small - everything helps!). I am offering handmade, one-of-a-kind stickers as compensation for $30+ donations. 
Here are some things I've made in the past four years of high school at BTWHSPVA, a performing arts school that has truly been integral to my development as an artist. I couldn't have created these things without the opportunities, ideas, and inspiration that came from this school and the people surrounding me. I believe that this illustrates the necessity of attending the college that I feel will give me the opportunities, ideas, and inspiration that I need to continue to develop as an artist.
