Hello, my name is Eden and I am a 20 year old criminology student living in the UK. Growing up with a deep love for music, I had always wanted to become a DJ. For as long as I can remember, music has always given me that most euphoric feeling in my heart that nothing else can - and simply NOTHING else beats it. I grew up singing and also played the violin for a few years, so have a great ear for for tune. After years and years of wishing on a star that I could one day try it, I was able to whilst visiting family in Essex as my uncle let me practice on his decks. I have also started reading books and committed to note taking from them to learn the theory as best as possible. My uncle, Alan, had also taken me to Creamfields for getting good grades at university, after years of dreaming about being able to go but never being able to afford it. It was here that I realised that I cannot put my dreams on hold any longer and so I committed to learning and doing everything in my power to live out my passion. It is my dream to one day play that stage and to travel the world bringing happiness to others through the gift of music ~ even my very first time on the decks filled me with such excitement and hope and happiness. Those same feelings that my favourite DJ's (Armin Van Buuren, Fatboy Slim, Tiesto, etc) give me when they play beautiful music to the world, the feeling of connected-ness, humanity, and universal love. I know that to some this may seem silly but to me this means the entire world and the only thing stopping me is the cost of the equipment. I come from a single mother family and simply cannot afford it, as running my flat whilst at university takes everything and more out of me. Because I do not live with my family it is a constant battle to pay everything unlike a lot of other students who are able to go home during the holidays and who get financial support from their parents. I am asking anyone out there with a spare penny, to please help my dream come true, so that I can create music for the world to embrace. It would be enough for me to practice on my uncle's but due to cost I cannot travel down there regularly, so much so that i've only been able to go down to see my family there once this last year. I am praying that for my 21st birthday (2nd April 2018) I will have enough funds to be able to do what I love. I have worked out the lowest alount which would enable me to get the equipment second hand. Thankyou in advance for any donations, god bless you.
I have attached a little video of my first proper time using decks :)
