Hi guys, thank you for visiting my page, it's much appreciated. I have set up this page to gain some funding ahead of my 3 years at RADA & I am in need of your help. Its important for you guys to know why I’m even acting. Acting is an unpredictable career to pursue. Yet it has been one of the few things that I’ve enjoyed since young and I know I need to put 100% into it in order to gain as much as I can.
Being blessed with a place at RADA is a major stepping stone for my journey & to be able to train at such a prestigious school will help shape how my acting career goes and the ability of work that I produce. I don’t want anything to hinder this progression as I feel I am on the way to something special and I would love any kind of support. When I act I want to express the story that I am involved in and show the truth to the audience. With me acting isn’t about awards or the fame it is simply where my heart is at. I want to reach people.
Usually I’d suck it up for myself & get a job but this situation is a bit different as the course requires 35 hours a week minimum, leaving hardly any time for me to be able to hold down a job. On top of this last year I was blessed with a place on Guildhall’s Preliminary Acting Course, and took out a loan in order to fund the course. I am now paying back each month for the next 4 years alongside funding my time at RADA.
Financially I am very short. The amount I have received from student finance will barely cover my moving out costs as I will receive £1775 per term, yet my rent for the term will cost £1812, which is one of the cheapest amounts that I could find in London, without including living costs.Therefore I am raising the £2000 to cover my first year including my rent, living costs such as monthly travel to & from RADA food & equipment etc
Thank you for taking an interest in my cause, I hope I’ve been able to communicate my love for this art and the necessity of your support on my journey.
