GIO'S PATH TO HEALING THROUGH BODY MOVEMENT AND DANCE
I am releasing a campaign to help my friend Gio complete her Masters Degree starting in September 2018.
Giovana Quintero is an enthusiastic psychologist who has a passion for dancing. In the last few years she has been volunteering as a psychologist in a charity which has pioneered on work with mental and emotional health and works in partnership with the NHS. Many adults and children have benefitted from her hard work within this charity and her support with 1:1 and group therapy sessions. In addition, she has conducted parenting workshops, presentations and has led a variety of seminars and special events in the area of personal development.
Always creating engaging activities and supporting creative therapy, Giovana has been very involved in community outreach programs that seek to overcome social stigma and discrimination against mental health and discrimination, she has done her work with great professionalism, care and understanding of everyone's needs.
She also has an extensive experience of working with primary age children as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and for the past 15 years has supported many mainstream and special needs children to become a better version of themselves and apply themselves to their learning.
She has recently been offered a place at Goldsmith College to study for a Masters Degree in Dance Movement Psychotherapy and needs your help!
As you know, it is very hard for people to take on a university education which entails enormous tuition fees and she has to raise £10,000 to cover the cost of her 2 year course. I am turning to relatives, friends and good willed strangers and entrepreneurs to help Giovana raise this money and crowdfund her tuition. Every pound you donate is one step closer to Giovana filling her passion and dreams of becoming a successful Dance Psychotherapist.
I am not just basing this fundraising mission around her own gain. If we all support her she will be able to continue giving her free time and service to the community via outreach programs that seek to overcome social stigma and discrimination against mental health and prejudice.
To increase incentive for donors Giovana would like to offer some rewards and she has confirmed that she could facilitate some dance movements psychotherapy sessions for individuals or small groups FREE OF CHARGE (or for a small charge) and spaces for therapeutic journeys.
Additionally, she is happy to explore job offers and opportunities where her skills could be of benefit and which would combine her passion for dancing, therapy and education – such as online or face to face counselling sessions (for both children and adults), teaching Spanish through games and music, babysitting, etc.
Giovana has a positive attitude to life, a fun-loving, caring personality, a friendly nature and great empathy, I would love to see her succeed in this new venture she is undertaking and I am sure your contributions will make a difference to her and to all those that will benefit from meeting her and working with her. She is definitely a person that leaves you 'moved, touched and inspired'
