Hello! My name is Alina and I'm 18 years old. I currently live in Brazil.
I have recently been accepted into the BFA in Acting for Film at the New York Film Academy, and I have been awarded a $9000 talent scholarship per year from them. Unfortunately, that is not enough. I still can't afford the tuition, plus the housing and transportation costs.
That is why I'm asking you for your help. I have been working hard through all of my life in order to go to college in Los Angeles. Since I was a child, I have been ranked in the top 5% of my class and I got straight A's. Plus, I have been practicing drama for 11 years now. When I decided that I was going to try and get into acting college, I practiced my monologues for several hours a day. That is why I got that well deserved scholarship.
I'm working at a museum in my home town in order to save money for college, but that's still not enough. So I ask you for your help. Any value will be very much appreciated and will help a lot. Know that you will be making a huge difference in my life and in my lifelong dream. I'll be the happiest person ever if I can go to college.
Besides, I want to become a role model for teenagers and children with big dreams. Most people tell us big dreamers that we should be more down to Earth, that our dreams aren't possible at all. That's why I wanna show them that they ARE possible. I wanna inspire them with my story and with what I've been through in order to accomplish my dreams. I wanna show them that if I made my dreams come true, so can they, and that they should never give up. If you can't afford to make a donation, please share this! Maybe there's someone out there who's willing to donate. All the money will be spent on the tuition, as well as on housing and transportation.
