Help Talitha Fulfill a Dream at the CMAA

Donation protected
Hello, everyone! My name is Talitha Jae (but most people just call me T), and I'm a passionate singer-songwriter from Far North Queensland. I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you all - I've been accepted into the prestigious Country Music Academy of Australia!

The Opportunity:
The Country Music Academy offers a two-week immersive experience filled with workshops, networking, tuition, and performance opportunities, and invaluable insights into the world of country music. It's a golden opportunity for me to grow as an artist, connect with industry professionals, and take a significant step forward in my music career.

Why I Need Your Support:
While I'm over the moon about this acceptance, the reality is that pursuing this dream comes with financial challenges. The course fees plus the costs of flights and accommodation in Tamworth, where the Country Music Festival takes place, quickly add up.

The Breakdown:
Tuition fees: $2,500
Flights (approx): $1000 - $1400
Transport on the ground (approx): $500
Accommodation(approx): $1500
Extra daily expsnses (approx): $500

Obviously, the sooner I book these things in, the better chance I have at securing lower prices. Also The Academy are working very hard to find us billet accommodation for the time of the course, so this cost might reduce as well.

I will be scrimping and saving on my end, and trying to hustle as many gigs as I can fit alongside my fulltime job (which I may yet need to ask for leave without pay from - meaning I'll need to find a way to cover rent etc as well). So know that I'm working hard on my end too and not asking for a free ride. Anyone who knows me, knows that I work hard in my day job, and in music, to fund all of my musical adventures. And most of the time I can (just) get by - but this time I really need your help.

Total Funding Goal: $5000

How You Can Help:
I'm reaching out to you, my friends, family, and fellow music lovers, to ask for your support in making this dream a reality. Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant difference. Here's how you can help:

1. Donate: Your generous donation will directly contribute to covering my tuition, travel, and accommodation expenses.

2. Share: Spread the word about my campaign! Share this on your social media channels, email it to your contacts, and help me reach a wider audience.

3. Encourage: Your words of encouragement mean the world to me. Leave a message, share your favourite song, or simply let me know you're cheering me on.

4. Suggestions - I'm open to suggestions on other ways to raise the funds, I'm trying to explore grant opportunities, trying to get some extra gigs in, open to being creative to get this off the ground, so if you've got ideas, I'd love to hear them!

The Impact:
By supporting my journey to the Country Music Academy, you're not only helping me fulfill my dream but also becoming a part of my music career. Your support will empower me to hone my skills, create beautiful music, and share my passion with the world.

Thank You:
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my journey and considering supporting my dream. Together, we can make this incredible opportunity a reality. Your support means more to me than words can express, and I can't wait to share my music and experiences with you all.

Let's make this musical dream come true, one note at a time!
