Send Carmen to NYU Acting School

 

Dear Editor and Neighbors,

As many of you know, I am extremely passionate about acting.

From a young age I have worked hard to develop my craft in hopes that I will one day attend New York University’s School of Dramatic Arts.

Recently, this longstanding dream has come to fruition. From more than 800 applicants, I was one of 16 who were selected to attend this summer’s NYU acting program for high school students. Renowned as being one of the most prestigious summer acting programs in the country, it includes rigorous training in a collegiate setting.

However, NYU has high tuition rates; their high school acting program is no exception.

The program itself costs around $10,000. My dad has already paid the initial $2,000 commitment fee, to secure my place in the program, with the understanding that I am responsible to raise the remaining $8,000.

With the help of my friends and family, I am determined to raise the funds. I know it’s a lot to ask, but even a small contribution will help me reach my goal.

Gofundme™ is a funding platform that allows individuals to raise money for their specific cause. My account is http://www.gofundme.com/7gy248.

This website will allow me to consolidate and monitor the funds I receive before directly paying the tuition.

I will personally keep everyone informed of my progress, and appreciate your consideration.

Sincerely,

—Carmen Flood
