For the last 4 years my sister (Zoe) has been working so hard like many others around the country to go to drama school.
Since she was little she's always been performing. She was Alice in Alice in Wonderland in her leavers play in year 6 and she also played Wendy in Peter Pan when she was in sixth-form. Other than school plays she attended a musical theatre school in Lincoln for over 5 years and played many lead roles in the shows, such as; The Scarecrow (wizard of oz).
She has also done all of her LAMDA exams and worked extremely hard over her A-levels to learn monologues, build her character profiles and learn how to translate Shakespeare aside from doing so well in all of her actual exams.
Zoe was lucky enough to be given a place on the Foundation course at ALRA north last September and it has taken her and my whole family to fund the last year with no certainty that she would even get a place at the end of the year.
After moths of waiting she has found out that she has been offered a place on her dream course and will be attending in September.
However, unfortunately the school that she has been offered a place is not fully funded by student finance and after her last year being funded completely by herself and our family we are going to seriously struggle to send her there again.
I understand that everyone has their own personal struggles and we are so grateful for everything that we have. As a sister to have to watch your little sister and best friend work so hard to be offered a place on a course that people only dream of getting on to, that only she dreamt of getting on to, to then think that because it's not fully funded she might not get to go, breaks my heart.
It would be awesome if you could give anything that you have to support my amazingly talented sister to pursue her dream of being an actress.
