My name is Destiny Wimpye. I have been dancing for 12 years now, and only two short years ago, I decided that I wanted to focus on becoming a ballerina. Over the last 5 years many of you have watched me move across the country, perform with some major artist and even dance at The White House! Looking back, I can see just how much I have grown as a dancer. I have one of the best mom's in the world because she literally gave up everything so that I could have those opportunities.
I have already had some great opportunities in 2019 such as my first principal acting role on the t.v. show “This is Us”, being featured in an upcoming LeBron James campaign, an interview with Dance Spirit Magazine and another modeling opportunity!
I am almost there guys, but the next few years are the most important and the level of training I receive will continue to be more demanding for me and for my mom financially. That is why I need your help. I am attempting to raise money to travel to New York and cover housing at The School of American Ballet this summer. I have been training very hard at The Colburn School which has afforded me a tuition scholarship!! Receiving the best training will help reach my end goal of being in a ballet company. I know that this summer intensive will push me to work harder and get me one step closer. Your donations will help with pointe shoes, housing, and travel to and from Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Please know that I am doing my part by working hard which has earned me some scholarships and sponsorships by major dancewear companies. Thank you in advance for helping me continue to follow my destiny. I love and appreciate all of you!
