Hello, lovely people! My name is Danica and I am a 22-year old young (aspiring) artist and writer from the Philippines.
Just recently I have applied to attend a summer program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City to train for Musical Theatre. You see, ever since I could remember, I have dreamed of coming to New York and becoming a thespian. The theatre was a sacred place for me, and it made me very happy to be a part of a show. But for a very long time, I lost interest in it and now, I am slowly starting to rediscover what it is like to be on the stage again. A few days ago, I received an email saying I got accepted into the said program for the summer at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Now, this is really something. My dreams flashed before my eyes and excitement came flooding back. I felt a strong sense of passion for the craft and also fear, because how am I going to be able to afford the expensive tuition? I applied because it was my passion, and I had no idea that I would make the cut. Now that I did, I am humbly asking for your generous help so I would be able to attend the school of my dreams and, indeed, fulfill my life-long dream.
All the donations will be put towards my tuition fee, student visa fee, plane ticket, medical insurance, and what-not. If you would love to donate, thank you very much. If not, I would be more than happy if you could share this fundraiser so much more people could donate. Either way, I would be so grateful for any help that you could put my way.
A dream is simply an idea unless you set it in motion, that is what I believe in. I also believe in hard work. So I am going to strive and work hard to make my dreams a reality. With your help, I can accomplish my passion to become an actress and perform on Broadway...and eventually get a Tony. Ha! For now, every cent counts and thank you for reading my story and for donating.
Again, thank you very, very much, and blessings to us all!
