Weʼre raising £2,500 to help cover living costs while studying at the Yale School of Music

I have played the flute for well over half of my lifetime, and it's the thing I love to do the most. I had the time of my life studying at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff for four years, and since then I have been working at Wells Cathedral School, a specialist music school in Somerset. Whilst there I have been constantly working to develop my flute playing, and I now think I'm ready to study at a higher level, which is why I decided to search for masters courses. My favourite by far was the Yale School of Music, and after a whirlwind process of recording videos for submission, and eventually flying out to Connecticut, USA for a live audition, they have offered me one of the three available places!
Needless to say I have accepted the place, along with a full tuition scholarship of $34,000 per year. I have also been saving for a while now, and have enough to cover a lot of my living costs. What I need help with is the annual cost of health insurance while I'm over there, which is quite expensive! (God bless the NHS...)
If you know me and my playing, please consider giving what you can to help with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If not, I've included a video in case it helps you decide, or allows you to see what you're investing in! I'll be forever grateful to anybody who is able to help make this a reality for me.
