Funding Stage School London 2017-20
Due to the distance from my hometown, nearly 200 miles, I obviously need to raise money to cover the costs of my accommodation, additional college costs/fees, dance attire. I will also continue to seek work in Romford while I study to cover the everyday basic living expenses. I have now moved to Romford to allow me to attend college for the duration of the three year course.
The amount I need is just under £9,000 a year with the total cost for the three years being £26,950. I am so grateful to everyone who has already helped and supported me to raise the first £9k I'm delighted to announce this means that my first years training and accommodation is paid for!
This literally means the world to me it has been my dream and all I have every wanted to do. I literally live to dance and perform. For many years I have put up with bullying both physical and mental but I am determined to succeed, this is my dream and I will do whatever it takes to make it. My goals are to continue with my training at CPA, to train hard and make the most of all the training and experiences this will provide, to enable me to graduate with my level 6 diploma. The ultimate dream is get a lead role within a West End show however I would love to also experience and work within television, do a national tour and more modeling basically anything that allows me to perform and make others happy.
My family background we are literally just a normal family three generations living together my parents, Steve and Zoe, have been married for 22 years this year and I have a little sister Emily who is 14 years old we also live with my Nan who is retired. My parents both work but we live month to month. We have had our struggles which is why my parents are unable to fund all my additional college and accommodation fees. In 2011, my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer and continues to have treatment for ongoing problems. More recently living with undifferentiated autoimmune disease, having major surgery to revise her cancer scar and being hospitalised for sepsis. My family have always been very supportive of me but just don't have the funds to help me with this.
This is an amazing opportunity for me and I can't express how thankful I would be if anybody would be willing to help me achieve my dream. I can promise you that I will make the most of this amazing opportunity, that I will work my hardest every single day and I will become the best I can be. When I reach my goals and become successful my promise to you all is that I will pay this opportunity forward to help another young person fulfil their dreams.
Update Summer 2018- So I was living the dream training at CPA Studios and now the rug has literally been pulled from beneath me I had graduated Year 1 and looking forward to starting Year 2 having paid my fees and signed a contract for accommodation for 6mths then I got an email out of the blue stating from immediate effect CPA was closed! I’m devastated, scared, sad, worried literally feel sick so my journey now involves attending meetings and auditions to find my new College, a new home and new colleagues. I need people’s support now more than ever these meetings are nationwide and there is no guarantee I will get back the money paid for fees or rent.
Thank you for your time and interest in my story so far, any donations however big or small everything really does make a difference however if you unable to help by donating to my fund I totally understand but you can still help - could you please share this post on social media or tell your family and friends about what I'm doing.
I am also looking for sponsors either personal or company, for the whole amount or anything; literally every penny counts and it can be a one off amount, a yearly amount or the whole amount.
If you would like any further information please contact me.
