My name is Sidney Taylor, I'm 20 years old and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I participated as a model in the International Arts Talent showcase where international art director and talent scout Kim Meyers came to South Africa to seek potential talent. I was one of the contestants who received a callback out of the 400 who participated. We have been chosen to showcase our talent at The Applause Rising Talent Showcase in Orlando Florida, USA. There we will receive intensive training and get exposure to agents, talent scouts, record labels, casting directors, acting coaches and managers of the highest calibre from NYC, LA and Europe.
I need your assistance in the form of sponsorship to make my dream a reality.
