Throw Stacey On The Plane.

Greetings,


My name is Stacey Rose. Mother, writer, lover of cats. I have the honor of being accepted to NYU Tisch Asia's Dramatic Writing program.  This incredibly unique opportunity will not only allow me to study dramatic writing (my passion),  but it will allow me to study at one of the most prestigious institutions for my craft in an entirely different culture.  Great stories abound for sure, but first ... I have to get there and set up house keeping.  The following amounts represent what I will need in order to get to Singapore and survive until my financial aid is available.

 

The numbers (USD):

Travel

One way ticket to Singapore = $1000

 

Housing

Two weeks temporary board upon arrival = $364

Security Deposit = $1600

First Month's Rent = $800

Agent Fee = $800

Stamp Duty  = $70

 

Utilities

Cell Phone Deposit $200

Utilities Deposit $200

 

Travel (in Singapore)

MRT (subway) Pass & other travel = $200

 

Food

Cost $400

 

Misc.

Cost $300

 

Student Pass

(The Equivalent to a Student Visa in the US) $90 

 

TOTAL:  $5, 020

 

This is the minimum amount I will need, and I haven't included shipping my belongings (although I haven't a clue what I'm bringing).  My current pay checks, in their entirety, are going to paying my regular bills.  In order for me to pull this thing off I need a miracle. Period.  You can help by donating ANY amount you can.

 

Think about it this way, I have 1,209 Facebook friends (don't judge me :P).  If all of you gave just $5 I'd be on my way! I will decide on July 1st (31 days from now!) if I am going to go as I will need to have my ticket purchased by then and know if I have enough funds to move forward.


In return for your generosity I vow to:


-Go to school,


-work my ass off


-write dynamic and innovative theatre  that tells an honest story from all sides.


-not to write hit gospel stageplays*



*hit Buddhist stage plays are fair game.

Again ANY help you give is invaluable.

 

Thank you so much in advance,

 

Also, PLEASE feel free to share this with friends and any rich oil tycoons ;).
