Good day everyone!
My name is Sachi Cruz and I am now 13 years old living in the Philippines. I began dancing at the age of 4 and a few years ago I discovered my passion and that is "Ballet".
I have gotten quite a number of scholarships given during competitions but I have not availed any of those because of the significant amount of expenses required as the scholarship only covers the school fees. Expenses in those coutries where I got scholarships are quite high especially in Europe and Australia.
Recently, I was chosen and have been given a scholarship program in Melbourne, Australia. I now thought that this time I should at least accept this scholarship given by the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet and join their Ballet Intensive Program from April - June, 2020. I don't want to later regret that I have done nothing with this great opportunity and so I am knocking on your door to help me to a step further to my dream as there is no way that my parents could raise at least P350,000.00 from their earnings. Without your help, this wouldn't be all possible.
My dad is an employee and only earns enough to support my academic school expenses and doing part time jobs to help me get to my ballet school/lessons. My mother is a housewife and has devoted herself to support, guide and to educate me in everything that I do. I am so thankful and grateful for having such parents who only wants the best for me.
This is an incredible opportunity and I am so grateful that I have been chosen as one of the very few in the Philippines to participate in this program.
These funds will cover travel expenses, accomodation, meals, local transport, ballet shoes, etc. before I leave Manila, Philippines going to Melbourne, Australia on April, 2020.
Please help me to continue on my path to success, and manifest my ultimate dream.
All donations are gratefully appreciated and I will keep everyone updated on my progress at the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet and beyond through updates on this page.
I couldn't do this without you. I promise I will be tireless and will always aim to become one of the best as I am very passionate with this magnificent art.
