Hello, everyone! My name is Alex Reyes. I am a 23-year old full time, freelance singer and theater actress in Manila. I have always dreamed of going to New York -not for leisure but for education and talent improvement/advancement. It has been a BIG goal of mine to study under Broadway actors and top notch mentors. Now, here's the thing. Last March 20, 2017, I finally took a chance to audition for two programs in New York: NYU Steinhardt's summer musical intensive program and Jodie Langle's "Making It On Broadway". Not long after, I received news that I passed them both! Crazy!!! They feel like the TWO BIG YESES I HAVE EVER GOTTEN IN MY LIFE!!! Now I'm taking a leap to do those two programs! Sayang naman. I wouldn't want to let the opportunity pass! After these workshops, I would definitely be willing to teach Musical Theater to children. Whatever I gain from this experience, I'll willingly share for the betterment of Philippine Theater. (Wow, so ambitious! Lol.)
Php 200,000 will actually not cover all of my expenses in the duration of my stay there. It's only /part/ of the total sum. *QUE HORROR* I've managed to save up some money from 2 years of work but it's not enough. New York is so expensive! HUHU. So I'm knocking for kindness in your hearts to help me pursue this rare opportunity. Any amount of donation will do.
