help an aspiring dancer achieve her dreams

Hi, my name is Olivia Keith. I am sixteen years old and for as long as I can remember I have wanted to become a professional ballet dancer. It means I miss a lot of other things because I’m always training, but I love it. I’m very fortunate to have a scholarship to study at the Southeastern School of Ballet. They encouraged me to apply for a summer program at the Dutch National School of Ballet in Amsterdam and – I can’t believe it - but I was accepted. I am so excited. My dream is to be a professional dancer in Europe. Now we’re trying to raise money to help pay for the flight, lodging and cost of the summer program, altogether $3725. Mom says we’ll borrow money if we have to because its outside the budget. My dad works part-time at two jobs and helps the ballet with yard work monthly. My mom gave up a regular good paying job to raise funds and run a startup to help people and pets with diabetes. I’ve saved up $335 but I really need your help to make this dream come true. Every little bit will help. It would be an amazing experience and hopefully lead to a career in ballet in Europe. Thank you for your support, it means the world to me.
