Dustin Goes to Canada!

Hi there!

My name is Dustin, and I'm from Philadelphia, PA.  A month ago, I applied for an art workshop in Canada. The program would house four students and allow them to focus on creating new art and networking with working professionals for one month.  I applied to the program and and was interviewed for a spot, and I found out I got in!

It was a great feeling, and I would love to go and study with these cool artists, but at the moment I don't have the money to do it. I'm working as many hours as I can with my current job, and my family wishes they could help, but it wouldn't be enough. 

That's why I've created this Gofundme. The opportunity I've been given is one I can't pass up without trying every possible thing to get there. 

As it stands the program itself is $5000. That takes care of my housing, food, and supplies. The other $1000 would help cover travel costs of flying to and from Quebec. Any other expenses I'd cover on my own with money I've saved up for this trip. 

If you find yourself able to contribute, you will have my eternal gratitude, and I can promise you that I will work as hard as I can to guarantee this opportunity isn't wasted. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
