Send Lyana to Violin Camp!

Lyana is a kind, thoughtful, incredibly intelligent, and talented person.  She dedicates herself to everything she does with passion and drive. Every day, after school, Lyana practices violin with the Roxbury Youth Orchestra. Then, she diligently finishes the hours of homework she gets at her challenging exam school without complaint. She's the kind of student who writes four pages of a narrative instead of one, who writes paragraphs instead of sentences, who thinks critically about every aspect of the work instead of just striving to complete it. This is the same dedication she brings to her practice of violin.
Lyana got accepted into an elite and competitive summer camp in Minnesota called Bravo! Summer Music Academy. (
Unfortunately, scholarship money there is scarce, and Lyana already got the maximum from them. Lyana could use help raising the rest of the camp cost, the plane ticket there, and a little bit of money for incidentals. The camp costs $1700, and they gave her $600. She needs $1100 for the camp and about $300 for a plane ticket from Boston to Minnesota. If you can help in any way, she would be grateful.

Please watch her video to see Lyana speaking on her own behalf. We thank you in advance!
