Tessa's Going to Grad School?!

I was accepted to my dream school! (Now I am moving to one of the most expensive cities in the world).
This year, I auditioned for the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (most people call it LAMDA). 
It's one of the best drama schools in the UK, if not the world, and I am honored and so very thrilled to be starting my school year at the end of September! I'll be in a 2 year MFA program, which is something I've long dreamed about doing. I decided this year, that it was finally time. 

The biggest issue with attending school in the UK is that my student visa will only allow me to work 20 hours a week - hardly enough to pay for tuition, room, and board. I have funding via FAFSA, but every cent I can save now will save me on paying it back with interest to the US Gov't when I graduate.

I have been so fortunate to have such a supportive network of friends and family, and believe me, your emotional support is all I can ask and all I truly need. However, if you feel the urge to kick me a couple of bucks, I wouldn't say no. Might make the different between eating beans on toast five days a week and eating it only four!

All my love,

(Here's a photo I took of myself the first time I went to London - coincidentally, it was also when I decided I wanted to live there one day).
