Hey everyone, im Zoe.. haha whats your name? ;)
So, i live in Australia, a smallish town in the south-west region of Victoria (nice and cold) haha.. im in year eleven at the moment (June 2013) and my goal is to finish Vce, then pursue a career in dancing. Ive been training for many, mqny years and theres no doubt that i want to do anything else. I have my mum, who is single and my brother in my family, we are super close and are always there for eachother. Over the last year or so though, my mum has given almost everything towards my dance tuition, we have been to atleast 4 other towns (including interstate) and also had people come to where i live, so that i can get some more advanced dance training.. mainly because there is not much left for me to learn in my small town, so its been magnificent!
Recently i competed in a dance eisteddfod, which was fantastic - as the competition was really hard, and (not that its about winning, but) i received places in all my dances.. aswell as that i got an award of $150, and evn better.. my teacher from interstate was there, and she was so happy with my perormances, she has offered me a scholarship for her dance school. This is absolutely amazing, i am so happy! and not veing arrogant at all.. its just so good, because ive so often been 'pushed down' brcause of the tall poppy syndrome.. so this is so amazing!!!
After looking into all my options with the family, we have come to the conclusion that even though i got a scholarship, its just too expensive for me to move over there by myself - the schooling, boarding and travelling expenses are too high.. my mum is distraught, because she really wants me to have the oppertunity, but if she were to give it to me, she would be using the little of her fathers inheritance and putting herself at risk when she is elderly. Which i completely understand..
So im here now, trying to raise as much money as i can! My aim is for atleast $1000, brcause this is not even half of the boardig expenses.. but mum has said, if i can raise enough then i can go and dance my heart out!! :) so please, if you are still reading this.. any donation big or small is so appreciated. It will NOT go to waste! That much you can be super sure of :)
