Help me to continue with my music career

Hello everyone!! My name is Elmer. I started playing the trumpet at the age of 4 years old with my dad who is also a trumpet player. Trumpet is my passion. Trumpet is everything for me. The trumpet is part of my family. I was accepted at the age of 9 to the National Conservatory of music from Peru. When I was 14 years old I went to Interlochen Arts Academy where I graduated in 2013. This is my second time I created this campaign and its for the same reason, to finish my music career. Thanks to God I could go to my first year at New England Conservatory last year. Thank you so much for the big help, for supporting me and my family.!! I'm so happy that I have friends and teachers that are alwyas with me in the good and bad moments. I had an excellent freshman year at New England Conservatory many great things happen, I won the Wind Emsanble concerto competition , I won the MTNA brass competition in Chicago and I also play twice in Carnegie Hall, one with the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the other one when I played with big band with fantastic maestro Paquito d' Rivera and Oscar Stagnaro. The reason of creating this campaign again is becuase I need help again. New England Conservatory is giving me full tuition and also 5000 dollars of living(dorm). I need this $10 700.00 dollars that is part of the living dorm, food, and also health insurance. I really want to come back to NEC. My family is from a really low economic situation. I started working as a trumpet player when I was 13, playing in wedding and doing some gigs with a brass quintet all this money has always go for my family, using for example of the high school where one of my sister (Valeria) goes, aslo this money that I always work for is for my younger sister (Camila) who needs therapies and future operations becuase she was born with cleft lips. My dad also works as trumpet player playing in peruvian folk bands that doenst make to much money, his job is not stable, sometimes he doesn't make much gigs. We don't have cars or a house. we leave in a market in the second and third floor in Lima. I want to change this in the future my goal is to give my entire family a better life, but first I need to finish my career. I know I can do it becuase when someone really love something in this case MUSIC I can do what I propose. Please support my family and me, help me with this, is really sad to see my parents worry every day about money now with this is getting worse I really want to finish my music career in this fantastic music school New England Conservarory. Please support me and my family ! we will be very grateful ! thank you to everyone! if you can't help me, please pray for me and my family.!!!
