My name is Aída Barberena, I´m from Nicaragua, I'm 25 years old and I'm a singer in training.
On February 8 I auditioned at the Landeskonservatorium in Vorarlberg, Austria; On February 18th, they gave me the good news that I approved my audition and that I can start studying this semester.
In Nicaragua there is no opportunity to do formal music education, so my desire to study lyrical singing and to have a better education in classical music, like that of many Nicaraguans, requires leaving the country and looking for new educational opportunities.
The Vorarlberg Landeskonservatorium (Conservatory of the State of Vorarlberg) is a prestigious institution with more than 300 students and recognized professors.
I started to officially receive classes and I am very happy to be able to fulfill my dream of studying singing at a prestigious conservatory in Europe.
However, the savings with which I prepared for this trip are not enough for some very important things, since I invested in singing and German classes, in the ticket to come here, and other living expenses.
I need help to pay the first semester of the university, the application for the student visa, and the student insurance payment (for the visa application). This help will be very useful because once I have my student visa I will be able to work to maintain myself in this beautiful city.
ANY CONTRIBUTION HELPS ME TO FULFILL MY GOAL!
Thank you very much for your time and support.
