On the night of January 31st, 2015 I cried and prayed unsure of God's plans for me. I didn't know what I should do; if I should enroll in grad school, get another job not in my field, or move out town. The next afternoon, Superbowl Blizzard Sunday, I got out of bed and made my way to Lou Conte Studio Chicago, where the Debbie Allen Dance Academy Summer Intensive auditions were being held. I figured since it had not been canceled it was where I was supposed to be and whatever happens will be God's answer to my tears the night before. At the end of the 4 hour audition, my number 232 was called and Ms. Allen announced that I had been accepted in the program.
So here I am, over a month later and I have received the Save the Date email confirming my acceptance; along with the due dates for deposit payments!
Life has dealt it's hand and it is not over for me yet. Dance is my passion and a career I wish to further pursue. My time has come and now I need your love and support to help me make it come true. I promise you all will be very proud and will be blessed beyond measure.
The amount I'm looking to raise will cover tuition and housing for the 1 month long intensive. Anything is everything to me. Thanks in advance.
With Love and Much Gratitude,
