I have always wanted to go to the USA to graduate an American high school.
My life has always been affected by the western world. I have lived in the UK for a few years when I was little, where I learned my English. Then, when I came back to japan, I went to an International school until I was around 3rd grade. I then went to a public elementary before taking an entrance exam and getting into the school I am in now. But, despite my life in the UK, I want to go to the USA to study. The reason of me wanting to study in the USA more than the UK is quite simple. The images of these two countries are quite different. While the UK has a sense of royalty, the USA has it's sense of casualty which I like more. Also, although the UK is also a big influence in pop culture, the USA is the center of the pop music industry.
My life has also been influenced quite a lot by music, Which, needless to say, has a vast majority of pop music. My musical life started out with worship music, which is English, because my elementary school was a Christian school. Then, with one CD which shall remain anonymous, I plunged straight into pop music. I also have been playing the piano from when I was around 5 years old. Although I had to quit due to my study on my upcoming entrance exam, now that the exam is done, I went back to playing the piano. Although I can't take lessons because my school is a boarding school, I am currently relearning piano, and came quite far. I also started to play the guitar last December, and I can play almost any song now. When I start to play some music, or make some music, or just sing, or listen to music I get lost in it and forget the time. I just love music, especially pop music, and America, is the center of it all. I want to learn music at the center of the industry. Sure, I can learn music in Japan, but there is a fundamental difference between the music in Japan and the music in America. Although they are both same genres of the same kind of music, there is something different between them.
But, in order to fund my dream, I have to go to a high school and go there for more than 3 years requires me to go to a private high school, which costs more than $55,000 per year. Also, having a host family look after me would require 25,000 dollars per year, and the insurance for the time there would cost me around 10,000 dollars per year. And last but not the least, studying music would take around 20,000 dollars annually. And, the traffic money, to textbook fees to some money to myself would make around 10,000 dollars yearly. So, It would amount up to around 100,000 dollars yearly, which is way more than my family and I can afford. Lastly, it would take around roughly 10,000 ~20,000 dollars to make the returns to all of the people who help me achieve my dream and fund this project.
So, this was my life and the reason I want to go to America, and why I am doing this crowdfunding project. I hope you found this project interesting or intriguing, or just want to help me, please fund this project and spread word of this project. thank you for reading all of this, and I hope you have a wonderful day ahead of you.
