Ryan Jamaal Swain   WASHINGTON, DC


Hello everyone: My name is Ryan Jamáal Swain and I have been granted the opportunity to study at the British American Drama Academy's Midsummer at Oxford. BADA, an intenisve summer acting program in conjunction with the Yale School of Drama, has trained some of the most elite Stage and TV/Film stars. Orlando Bloom, Chadwick Boseman, Tracie Thoms, and countless others have all added to the legacy of the Drama Academy. This opportunity is a dream come true, but comes at a cost that presents a financial struggle. Unfortunately, if I am unable to raise the remainder of my expenses it will be close to impossible for me to attend this program. College tuition for most families are, and will always be, a financial burden and this program is not within my family's financial means. The program's cost of $3,960 USD for tuition and $2,990 USD for accommodation, far surpass our budget. Any contributions that you can donate toward my goal of adding my name to the illustrious list of BADA Alumni would be greatly appreciated. With my advance thanks and blessing! "For it is in giving that we receive" -Ryan J. Swain
