Hello everyone, I am a 29 editor, writer and designer who loves musical theatre. I was born 14 weeks premature (born at 26 weeks) and I was born with ataxic cerebral palsy and have fought hard to pursue a career in musical theatere. I was told by doctors I would not survive and if I did I would be severaly imeaded in terms of both mental and physical ability. I fought against the medics and have worked tirelessly to produce my own digital magazine. I desperately need help to get this off the ground as I am single handedly trying my hardest to write all the content, produce and design the issues and source the content. I have done so on my own so far, yet it is physically and mentally intense and even with my cerebral palsy I continue to push hard and strive to achieve. Your funding would help so much in getting this magazine off the ground properly so I can share the work load and be able to persue my passion of musical theatre and editorial content to produce a digital magazine that all theatre fans can enjoy. I have come so far with this and I do not want to give up now. I previously was working with a developer, however like many got taken for a ride both financially and also losing my digital templates and ultimately my app. All I managed to retain was the magazine brand name which I owned. As a result it left having to rebuild my entire digital code & set up to the magazine and rebuild and design my magazine all over again. Because I had paid this developer to do all the coding and the set up for the tablet app, I had to learn how to set up and design and add additional code myself, which I did all on my own using youtube videos and reading material online. Having lost time to rebuild, I am almost there and so close to getting this out there, I just need some help to do it as I am struggling to do this on my own now.
I would love to be in a position to give opportunities to new talent and also those with disabilities & those disadvantaged and give them a chance in any way I can. I want to be able to encourage their creativity and give them a voice to express themselves and their mutual passion for theatre in their writing through this digital magazine.
With your help I would be able to do this. I would so dearly love to make my parents proud who have sacrificed so much for me. Without them I would not be here, and to be able to tell them that I have gotten this off the ground would make make them proud and make me be able to give something back them. I would be able to show them them and also thank them for all the time and effort they put in to take me to all those hosiptal appointments and helping me with my physiotherapy for over 20 years of my life and supporting me through university. Even now they continue supporting me with my cerebral palsy and medication. I canot thank them enough for their physical and mental support throughout my life and sacrificing their time, which has enable me to be able to pursue my dreams. I would love to make the theatre community proud in getting this magazine established, and any help in terms of funding would so very much help me on my journey and it would also be a joint effort from all my potenial funders. I would also love to be able ro show anyone who has a disabllity or health condition that it is possible to get there despite what people may say, that you can get there & even with remember to never give up on your passion and dreams, however long it may take to get there.
My wonderful parents below when i was born. Without them and their constant dedication and sacrifice and support I would not be here being able to do what I love passionately.
