Can i borrow a dollar for school?

Greetings beautiful people,

Amadou Kouyate returning to school to continue my studies. For years I have been committed to the scholarship and dissemination of African culture, and I have come to the part of the journey where in order to continue my work in the community and abroad, I will have to once again become a student!! Previously, I left school to take care of my new infant child, but now babies are older, and I am more committed to completing this process than ever!  My dedication to my craft have earned me several awards and accolades in the years since I was last a student: 
Professional Residencies at 15 universities and Adjunct professor at 2 universities
2016 National Endowment for the Arts, Arts in Maryland Interviewee
2015 Jump Street Folk  Arts Awardee
2014 Maryland Traditions Master/ Apprenticeship Award Master
Strathmore Artist in Residence - 2013-2015
Award of Recognition: 2012 National Conference of Ethnomusicology, UT Nashville.
MD Governor’s Citation- Martin O’Malley 2011
Maryland State Arts Council- Individual Artist Award, 2009
I need your help and the help of your 5 closest friends/family/associates.  I need $3000 to pay off my bill!!!We can do this TOGETHER.  Help me continue in sharing music and culture by supporting my efforts to continue my higher education.

Sincerely,
Amadou Kouyate
