My name is Leah Dave and I am a sophomore in a US college. Although I am doing fine in my studies with a 4.0 GPA and being on the president's list since my first semester, I am not reacting my full potential. I have always dreamed about studying abroad in London to study acting with the best that the world has to offer. My ideal college is LAMDA and I know I am able to get in because of a prior audition and acceptance I got from a internationally known acting school but finances held me back. Unfortunately, I have been unable to raise enough funds by myself simply by putting in more hours at work and booking local acting jobs. I need the funds at least by the end of October of 2016 if possible. The money will be used to pay for the tuition, apply for a 4 tier visa to the UK, and a one-way trip plane ticket. This is so very important to me because I know that if I don't do this know, if I don't study abroad, I will always be stuck in my current situation. I want to be able to enrich people with the joys that art and drama can provide. I want to be able to set a higher standard for myself and anybody that will listen to my story that you should continue to strive for what you want. I have obstacles that I am currently facing such as constantly having to push myself out of my comfort zone to broaden my skills in acting and facing my own doubts but I need a little help with the financial hurdle. I am so thankful that you took the time to read this little bio and even more thankful if you are able to contribute even the smallest amount. Thank you and have an amazing day.
