My dream of london

Hiya my names Charlie, I'm 19 years old and have recently been accepted into a University down south to study performing arts in musical theatre. The course I have been accepted onto sadly provides no funding and cost a total of £6000 for the whole year! I started my journey 2 years ago when I signed up to Newcastle college to study performing arts because I knew it was something I would love to do, and I did! From leaving school I knew I didn't want a normal job and I never would. I have done so much in my past and none of them have excited me or interested me as much as this. I've done labourer work, electrical work, barbering, driving, customer service and none of them have been anything I enjoyed. I want to do something I love and being able to make a career from performing is an absolute gift!
I spent 2 years training at Newcastle College which was training me to do my auditions for Universities (Drama Schools). I spent over £400 in December on auditions for Drama Schools, which consisted of me travelling down to London for every audition for a chance to get closer to my dream. I've loved every moment of my life in the past 2 years and hearing that I got into one of my dreams schools was the best news I've ever heard! I was so excited to start a new chapter in my life but the problem that came up was money. Unfortunately as much as I love this industry, it is an industry that favours the rich!
I have applied for funding from many places and all have unfortunately been denied. I have plans to do some quick fundraisers and more to try get any sort of help I can with my fees. I am selling my car, working as much as possible at my job and also looking for a second job so I can have a much chance as possible to achieve my dreams! I have made this page to ask anyone for any sort of help they can, I know these times are tough for everyone and this is no where near the top of anyone's priorities but if you could spare anything, that would help me out so much and I would be forever grateful!
