New York Film Academy Dream

At the start of the year I attended the 'Industry Network' convention in LA and was successfully awarded a scholarship to study at the New York Film Academy.  The course is 2 years in duration and consists of a mix of musical theatre and film. To bring my dream to reality and get myself to New York, I am looking for your support.  My scholarship covers half of my tuition fees only and does not cover any costs associated with flights, accommodation, food and essentials.  Taking into account the Australian / US exchange rate, I will need upward of $AU132,000 to support myself whilst in the US studying for 2 years.  During my stay I will be on a student visa and unable to work, with no means of earning any money to support myself. In a nutshell, I will need to save sufficient funds before I depart for the 'Big Apple' in 2022.  I don't want to solely rely on my parents to fund my future career and I am seeking your generosity to help support my dream as a young performer and blossoming artist.  Please help me make it big on Broadway and fulfil my ambition of performing on the big stage.  Any donation will help!
