My Travel Story

Hello! My name is Alyssa, I'm a 21-year old full-time student at The New School studying Media and Screenwriting, and through my hard work and determination, I've earned myself the phenomenal, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study and intern abroad this summer in London, England! Earning this opportunity is a dream-come-true for me. Not only will it push me closer, credit-wise, towards graduation, but it will allow me opportunities to connect and network with entertainment industry professionals as well as gain international experience in the industry where my passion truly lives. After transferring to The New School following my sophomore year of college, I had lost some credits (not many, but still some) in the process of transferring from my previous university to The New School, so by being able to make up most of the credits I'd lost in the transfer by studying and interning abroad this summer, I'll be back on track to graduating on time, or at least, relatively close to it. On top of being a full-time student, I currently hold a part-time job where I work anywhere between 25 and 35 hours per week, and I volunteer at an elementary school in my town. When I'm not working, doing homework, or volunteering, I write my own music (I just released my debut album in February), perform my music, I write and analyze TV scripts (mostly pilots), and I also work on writing a screenplay I started working on this past Fall. As I've exhausted all of my funding for this school year and my credit history is too limited for me to take out a small private school loan for the summer on my own without a cosigner, I ask for any contributions, it doesn't matter how big or small, to help me finance this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I appreciate any and all contributions because truly, every cent counts. Thank you!
