Help Alina Study Abroad in Italy!

Hello everyone! 
This year I have a favor to ask from my friends and family. I'd like to ask that rather than buy me gifts for the holiday season (as well as for my 20th birthday) help send me to Italy to study abroad this summer!

I was recently accepted to the Musica nelle Marche program in the gorgeous Urbino, Italy! Taking place summer of 2018 June 16th-July 14th.
Tuition is $4,250

The components of my time spent there would include: Italian language study, vocal and dramatic coaching, performances and organized excursions/cultural events.

As most of you are well aware, music has been my life and my passion since I was a kiddo and I didn't get into acting until my senior year of high school. Being a bit behind the game as for my acting skills, Musica nelle Marche is a personalized music program where I get to hone my craft as both a singer and actress! (Much wow!)

I absolutely love performing and entertaining but I also have intense stage fright and I'm trying to overcome it. Please help me further my career by giving me this opportunity to be a part of this amazing program by donating whatever you can!

Since I am also in the St. Olaf choir, I am required to stay on campus every semester throughout the rest of my time here at St. Olaf. Finding summer programs has been difficult but being able to attend Musica nelle Marche this summer would actually be a dream come true!

Anything and everything helps tremendously.
Much love and many thanks,
