Hello world! My name is Hannah Abrahim. I am a 17 year old senior at Upland High School and an aspiring musician. I need your help to make my dream a reality!

I am here trying to raise money to attend A Cappella Academy for the third time in a row. A Cappella Academy is an “intensive summer program in Los Angeles [...] designed to train and educate the bright young minds of contemporary a cappella”. This camp was created for kids ages 13-18 who come from all over the world to make a cappella music. I was lucky enough to be accepted as the top 13% of the vocalists who auditioned! I can't say enough how blessed I am to be given this opportunity.

Created by Rob Dietz, Ben Bram, and Avi Kaplan, A Cappella Academy is not only a place thriving with musical, opportunity, but also a home for a loving family.

Going to A Cappella Academy would be a soundsational opportunity. Unfortunately, this incredible blessing does come with a price (literally), and a very high one! Tuition is roughly $2,000. This includes lodging, meals, classes, etc. As my family is on a tight budget at the moment, I am trying to raise money to make A Cappella Academy my dream come true.

This past year has placed a big financial burden on my family. Throughout 2017, I struggled with the death of two loved ones, a severe car crash with injuries, and the divorce of my parents. On top of all this, I am struggling to pay for college applications and AP tests.

The deadline to make my deposit is April 1, so I would like to spread awareness of my cause and try to raise as much money as possible as quickly as possible! A Cappella Academy is a great opportunity for me to aspire as an artist. I want to truly develop my skills as a vocalist, learn from some of the best performers in the business, and create fun and lasting friendships all at the same place at the same time. Any amount donated is truly appreciated.

A Cappella Academy has given me immense learning and performing opportunities that have allowed me to grow so much as a musician. Through this camp, I've truly gained a sense of direction in my life in terms of what I want to do for a career. In the 2017 session alone, I was blessed enough to perform with Pentatonix at the Hollywood Bowl and meet Tori Kelly!

Besides all the cool things we do, A Cappella Academy has given me some of my best friends. I wouldn't trade these lovely humans for the world. We all met making music together at camp, and we have continued to collaborate and grow closer as a family after camp ended.

A Cappella Academy, let alone being accepted, is a true blessing! I am very thankful for all the support. Thank you for taking the time to read about my fund, and I hope that I will receive enough donations to make a third year of attendance a possibility for me!
