Help Damion Graduate, T.Schreiber

Hello Everyone,

My name is Damion Rochester. I am faced with a crisis at school and I TRULY NEED YOUR HELP! I will be forever grateful!  I am slated to graduate from a well respected conservatory acting school in NY called T. Schreiber Studio and Theater. Edward Norton, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mary-Louise Parker, Amy Ryan are some of the people associated with the school! However, My past due tuition of ($1917.50) is needed by thisFriday, March 20th in order for me to continue in the program and graduate.   A contribution of at least $10 could save me! Please view my fundraiser video to hear me and my classmates' pleas for my funding!

Pursuing my dream in New York has been hard! My family is poor and I have put myself through college without asking for help. I've lived in uninhabitable environments and gone without food just so I could manifest my dream and inspire others, especially my baby sisters (8yrs old & 12yrs old) to never give up, even when hope seems like it's gone.  

Last summer I auditioned among many many people to get into T.Schreiber. The school is so picky and intense that they selected 14 people for their 1 yr conservatory acting program. Thank God,  they gave me a partial merit scholarship or else I would not be able to start. They understood my financial difficulty and thought that I showed great potential!

T. Schreiber is very expensive! It is privately funded so there is no financial aid! When loans and scholarship is not enough to cover my tuition and books, I have to find multiple jobs that work with my school schedule. Most times it doesn't pay enough, so I job hunt for better paying jobs that I believe could supplement my income.  In the interim of job interviews and the time it takes to get hired, I am missing payments and thus end up in the situation I am currently in, owing my tuition ($1917.50).  I graduate in 2 months and this is my dream.  I've never wanted anything so badly. since I was a child, being an actor has been my dream. I am finally getting the training for that. I need your help with making my dream come true. 

Honestly your help would go a long way! Helping me achieving my dream is really helping me to help others in the long run. I am that guy who would give a homeless guy my only sweater because he's cold on the streets.

I need your help with funding for my graduation.  I am seeking ($1917.50) needed by this Friday March 20th.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I truly hope you can help sooner than later! Honestly if 200 people chip in at least $10, I will be saved.  I am forever in your debt! A woman I met last week said  to me "I went to college on a wing and a prayer!" That's all I have now people, a "wing and a prayer!" Please contribute and share my cause!

Thank you,

Damion Rochester
