Help a young dancer pursue his dream

Hi guys my name is Mauro, I'm 21yo and I'm a young dancer from Portugal (Viseu).  And also I need your help.
My story began when I was 9yo, I was doing a lot of theather but as time gone by my love for it started to fall, but with that fall something new rised up inside of me. And that was dancing. So at 16 I joined a dance school and started to practice really hard everyday. And that's when I knew that's what I wanna do for the rest of my life.
Since then my dream got bigger and bigger. 
So last year school ended, and that's when I realised I didn't know where to go. And in Portugal, we as dancers don't have much opportunities, actually most dancer have to go to another country to follow their dreams. SoI got very lost, and part of that was because I coudn't afford going to auditions, I was in a bad place financialy, but I would not give up and that's when I started to work at a caffee to try to gain money for my future.  
In two weeks, I'm going to france to try to have more opportunities in the dance area. 
I'm asking you this money so you can help me achive my goal of becoming a professional dancer, for me to go on auditions, and not be afraid that I don't have enough money to support my dreams. This money would mean a lot to me, and would give me even more stenght to fight harder and harder everyday, even tho sometimes life is unfair

Thank you very much, and remember to never give up.
