Firstly a big thank you to all my fans and followers who have clicked through here and know me as Domina Jemma.
I am often asked by my devoted subs how they can tribute me in a meaningful way, so I have set up this campaign to make this possible.
As many of you know I moved back to the UK in 2015 after living abroad for 12 years, since then it has been all work and no play in re-establishing myself as a recognised professional in my local community and it's been a bumpy ride along the way! My first studio didn't work out long term, I lost my second studio at the end of last year due to marital break down and a separation, and have only recently concluded months of very hard labour on constructing a third studio!
The only thing that keeps me sane during times like these is the ocean, it has been my happy place for as long as I can remember and I have always taken every opportunity to spend as much time as I can near it, or even better- in it, any form of boating has been a long time passion for me. (And one of the main reasons I will never cut my ties to Italy! :)
It has been a dream of mine for a long time to learn to sail, become a fully licensed skipper, own my own boat and eventually sail around the world, but after these last few difficult years I realise that it can be so easy to get lost in it all and lose sight of your true pursuit of happiness, and there is no time like the present for chasing a dream....
So I have enrolled in courses through the Royal Yachting Association and have joined a local water sports club (not that kind!!), now I am well on my way to becoming a fully fledged sailor!
I have taken the first steps to achieving my dream, and if my subs and fans would like to make a meaningful tribute, this is the way to do it.
There are various courses I must do in order to reach a level of experience that permits me to sail long distances in international waters, so for now the funds I am aiming to raise are to cover course costs, club memberships, tutoring, travel costs, educational materials etc, I would also like to learn to dive as an extension of this and expand my skill set for long and potentially dangerous journeys.
Once this goal is close to being reached I will extend the fund amount further for those who might like to contribute to the purchase of a boat, mooring fees and potentially even some funding for a round the world trip.
As is often the case with these things - every little helps! If everyone of my fans, followers and faithful devotees each donated just £5, I would be offering sessions on the sea in no time!
Contributors of more than £100 or more can DM me in twitter for a little reward. x
I am privileged to be admired and adored by so many and I appreciate every one of you, now do as you're told and make Domina's dreams come true! Mwuah! xxx
