To whom it may concern
My name is Malaikha Hira.
I'm a 16 year old student and have been afforded an opportunity to visit Los Angeles for the Ipop convention.
The ipop convention is a showcase of ALL talents from around the world. They showcase dance, drama, modelling and music. I have been selected for my skills in drama, modelling as well as dance. I've been called a "triple threat".
The purpose of this competition is to then showcase the different talents and allow for agents as well as managers to select individuals for opportunities that are currently available in Hollywood.
Ipop has hosted these convention for over 16 years. I have auditioned twice. This is been the first year that I have been fully equipped and therefore been called back to attend the convention in Hollywood.
I'm so excited for this opportunity. As a 16 year old and the eldest daughter of 6 kids( two of whom my parents fostered from Angola), I often see the struggles that my parents face to afford us basic necessities as well as a few luxuries in life.
I am extremely grateful for the people that they are and the sacrifices that they make for us.
Therefore I'm writing to you for assistance to help my parents pay for the cost of my visit to Los Angeles.
To stay at Ipop Los Angeles selected venue which is the Millenium Baltimore Hotel and entrance into each day's workshop including the final days gala will cost us R75000.
Our flight is going to cost approximately R21000.
As young South African female I aspire to do my very best and to bring home gold. For assistance in helping me get to Los Angeles I am prepared to wear clothing branded by your company and carry any additional luggage or regalia that is branded by your company in order to promote your organisation for helping me.
Your assistance and support would mean the world to me as this is an opportunity that doesn't ordinarily fall on-ones lap I have worked really hard to achieve this and your help would result in me fulfilling my lifetime dream.
Thank you for reading my letter I hope to hear from you soon.
