Hello lovely friends, family, and other wonderful people!
My name is Imani Russell and I am a recent graduate of Vassar College with a BA in Drama. On September 17, I will be packing my bags and jetting off to Glasgow, Scotland to spend the next year working toward my MA in Musical Theatre at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland! I am truly excited about this opportunity to further my education as an actor, singer, and performer. Achieving my Master’s will allow me to gain the skills necessary for me to build a career I am passionate about.
As we all know, grad school is EXPENSIVE and I’ve made the BIG decision of moving to an entirely different country to pursue my dreams. I have been working all summer doing data entry and I have been fortunate enough to receive scholarships from Vassar to help me pay for a year’s worth of living expenses.
I still have a few more necessities to secure before/within my first term at RCS. Here are my remaining anticipated expenses:
Room & Board Deposit: $350
Required Materials for Dance and Acting Classes: $417
Household Items: $161
Macbook & iPhone Chargers: $90
The total of these expenses is $1,764.12. I am asking for $1,770 to cover the costs of anything that might be a little more expensive than expected.
For those of you who are able to donate, I’m offering some fun, personal perks*:
For $20, I will send you a handwritten thank you card/letter!
For $30, I will send you a handwritten thank you card/letter AND write you a poem about a topic of your choice!
For $40, I will send you a handwritten thank you card/letter, write you a poem about a topic of your choice, and draw you a small portrait!
For $50, I will send you a handwritten thank you card/letter, write you a poem about a topic of your choice, AND record a video cover of a song of your choice!**
For $100+, I will send you a handwritten thank you card/letter, write you a poem about a topic of your choice, record a video cover of a song of your choice, AND my girlfriend Mallory will send you HOMEMADE baked goods!
Thank you so much! If you are able to donate even $1, it would mean so much to me! If you are in a position where you are unable to donate, sharing this gofundme would also be amazing! I love you all, and I am truly appreciative of all of your support!
*Reminder that I will be adjusting to grad school, so it might take a second to get these rewards to you!
**I still consider myself a “beginner” on guitar (been playing for almost 7 years but didn’t work on scales like I should have uh oh), so songs with beginner to intermediate chord progressions are preferred :)
