I was recently chosen to travel to New York for an event called International Model and Talent Association (IMTA) in July 2015 where I will compete in front of 1,000 people that will include over 200 different talent scouting agencies as well as TV and movie producers.
I will be recording a demo to take with me to IMTA to leave with the record producers. My agency has won the singing portion the last three years and they feel confident that I could win for them this year!
I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am one in a family of 9 and am the oldest biological child. My dad is a teacher and my mom is doing her internship to become a school counselor and takes care of two developmentally delayed adults that they are the guardians of. I also have four siblings- one biological and three adopted.
I take school very seriously and have a 3.95 cumulative GPA with honors courses and I am enrolled in AP courses in the fall. I am in advanced weight training and play three sports for my high school; those being volleyball, varsity basketball and varsity softball. I battle with two chronic fractures in my back that will never heal and am monitored by Children's Hospital on a regular basis. I don't believe in making excuses for myself and take pride in being the hardest worker in the classroom, on the court/field and in my community.
I am contacting you to ask if you would please consider sponsoring me to compete at IMTA. I have to raise $7,995.00 to be able to attend the competition.
Most people that attend IMTA come from families that have financial wealth and while my family of nine has a lot of love and support, money is stretched very thin for us. I completely understand that this is a ridiculously large amount of money for me to have to raise but I believe that anything is possible with hard work and determination.
I would be humbly honored if you would please consider helping me with this opportunity of a lifetime by opening doors for my future and giving me the chance to proudly represent God, my family, my high school and my community.
IMTA gives out $150,000 in college scholarship money and that could change my future forever. My parents have taught me how important college is and that I have to use the gifts God has given me to get scholarships as they are working hard to meet my daily needs.
I apologize that this is coming as an email. I would be honored to send you a video of me singing at any point. I have included a picture of myself for you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and considering helping me to change the course of my life forever.
