Help Zoë reach for her dreams

28852396_15228128070_r.jpegHi, my name is Zoë, and my dream is to become a dancer. I am from Portland Oregon and ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of dancing in a major city like New York or San Franscisco. I am 15 years old and love dance more than anything in the world. I have no doubt I will pursue dance as a career. I was recently accepted into the 2018 Alonzo King Lines Ballet summer program, where I will be given the opportunity to train with guest choreographers, and live away from home for 4 weeks in San Francisco. Although this program is absolutely amazing, between room, board and tuition it is very expensive. I worked very hard to get into this program and outside of dance rehearsal, have taken as many babysitting jobs so I can to raise the money. I applied for a scholarship and was given $1000 towards my tuition. I am so close, but now I just need a little more help to get there. Dance means the world to me and is truly the only path for me. This opportunity is not something I take for granted and I would be very grateful to anyone who would make a donation. I would appreciate any help you could give and will be thankful for any contributions! Thank you!
