Joi's Study Abroad to London

Happy New Year to My Friends and Family!

My name is Joi Candace Denise Pierre and I am currently a junior a Rockford University.

The passion of my life has always been in the Performing Arts, especially singing. I’ve been in theatre for a decade now with being involved with Theatre under the stars, Ensemble Theatre Youth program, Graduate of HSPVA, Broadway Artist Intensive, Junior Theatre Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many more. I now study musical theatre at Rockford University. There I have had experience in several productions (Company, Doubt, A flea in her ear, and more to come my senior year). At the same time, I collaborated with colleagues to create our own organization called The Movement to celebrate my school Artistry and Artwork by putting on a festival for the City of Rockford that has now been instilled as a school tradition for years to come. Not to brag, but I have been a busy student at Rockford University. I do not take my hard work for granted and I am grateful for all that God has given me to experience.

I am glad to say that all my hard work has paid off. Recently I have been selected out of my entire theatre department to travel abroad in Spring 2018 semester in London, England. Gratefully my school has sponsored part of my travel expenses, but I am still short on other living expenses. I still need to get to my fundraising goal of $2500 to cover the cost. To help defray the cost, I am seeking donations to help me fund additional expenses.

2018 is full of excitement and encouragement and I am excited to embark on an extraordinary Journey. My voyage begins January 11th and I will return at the beginning of June 2018. I will be attending Regents University staying on campus. Also, I am in the city for the Royal Wedding in April. I have been disciplined and strategic with planning my trip but now I am calling on you for your support. For every donation, I will send a heartfelt warming postcard from London with a little piece of my England experience.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated and allow me to the opportunity to represent our community and country abroad. 

Sincerely,

Joi Pierre
