I find myself so grateful to have been chosen to study at RADA this year.
RADA is one of the most prestigious drama schools in the world and offers the highest quality of actor training available.Previous alumni include Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Alan Rickman, Ralph Fiennes, Sean Bean, Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins amongst many others (see www.rada.ac.uk).
RADA receives around 5000 applications a year for acting courses but only 40 are selected to study there.Therefore ,attaining this place could be a step closer to my earning a living as a professional actor.
This chance comes with a cost of £12000 per year plus accommodation, living costs, and expenses which will amount to around £15000 for the year.
I have managed to save a decent amount of money but am still afraid that I cannot make ends meet.Considering the hours that I have to attend classes (36 contact hours per week which will rise to 60 hours per week in the final term, not including the necessary preparation and study time outside of class), the amount of time left is not enough for me to get a proper job and earn a living.My rent and personal expenses are estimated to be around 13000 pounds per year but an occasional part time job cannot give me more than 300 pounds per month.This leaves an approximate amount of £9000 to find from elsewhere.
And this is where your help would be of tremendous value to me and my future.
I will probably be working throughout the year but any extra money I could raise will go towards my everyday expenses which are extremely high in London!
Any contribution is more than welcome.
Every little helps.
