I am an aspiring mixing engineer and music producer based in South Africa, doing my third year at The Academy of Sound Engineering. I would like to receive funding so that I can invest in the necessary equipment to build a studio. My mother is the only person receiving an income in a household of 7 people and thus is always under a lot of financial pressure. One of my goals is to help her with the financial burden by making an income through my mixing and producing. Building this studio will also give me a leg to stand on after I finish school. Please help me launch my career and help my mother. Thank you.
