Who Am I?
The Legendary Martial Artist, Actor, Director, Dancer, Teacher, Writer and Philosopher Bruce Lee Once Said “Artless Art Is the Artistic Process within the Artist; Its Meaning is Art of the Soul!” My name is Deltin Sejour an artistic and intellectual human whose purpose in living is to live out the true meaning of life. My purpose is to be the best individual possible and in turn contribute to the wellbeing of my community, my country, my region and the world at large, To be an Artist Allowing my soul to guide my actions and express my true self.
As fate had it, on February of 1993 I was born to a teenage in a not so amazing neighborhood with an absentee father. So it was not a surprise that my life was filled with trials and tribulations. It felt at one point that there was someone in the heavens rejoicing in the roller coaster I called life. Despite all the ups and downs I did my endeavor best to excel in my academics. As Part of my academic climb I participated in various interschool debates and speech competitions effectively gaining control of my power of express and building myself esteem. This also made me very conscious of my struggles but more importantly the struggles of others and every opportunity I got I took part in community service, and even small task that friends or complete strangers would ask me to help them with.
For years ever since the advent of Dragon ball Z and Yu Yu Hakusho, which are both Japanese animated martial arts series I have been obsessed with the art. So from fifth Grade onwards I would save my two dollars for lunch to pay for an eight dollar weekly Tae kwon Do class though in later years I enrolled in Kung fu. I loved it and my martial arts coupled with my budding poetic and literary skill made me forget all the problems of the world. That is until at the age of fifth teen I discovered dance! It was the ultimate expression of my feelings. Doing Hip Hop dance changed my life and introduced me to the world Theatre and acting. My life was forever changed and as the years went by I found myself taking lead roles in plays and even teaching hip hop at the local dance academy. I earned a Scholarship at all three of the dance schools on the island, which I have used in the past two years to enroll in Ballet classes. This has revolutionized my view on the art of dance. My Greatest realization is that Dance is going to be in my life forever, in Addition to all the things I already love such as academics, Martial arts, writing, serving others, and theatre.
What Am I Fundraising?
I created this Page to Aid with my first and second year’s tuition for university as I embark on the endeavor of studying both Sociology and Dance at the Bachelors level. In the Bahamas there are no Institutions where I can pursue both these degree as the same time. So I had to apply to numerous Institutions abroad to find the right University. My local theatre group has pledged to sponsor me a few thousand dollars however it still is not enough to pay for both tuition and housing. Scholarships here in the Bahamas are very competitive even if you are a model student there is no guarantee you will receive one either from the government or privately. So I am asking for your help in achieving my goals (as seen below).The current Economic down turn has struck my family in immeasurable ways financial. Not to mention the extreme lack of employment available here in the Bahamas. This has left me with little to no option. However despair will never stop me from moving forward. Your help in any form will be it small or large will be greatly appreciate and will go toward making a dream a reality!
