My Travel Story

by: Lanita Wright Start Date: Sep 4, 2016 - End Date: Sep 3, 2017

For five years, I've been having dreams of returning to England to pursue my master's degree. I've never given up that dream. I would like to go to university at one of the two academies listed in my links, and I plan to start applying for them this fall. 

One important reason why I want to go to England so badly is the performing arts atmosphere. There are so many ways to be involved with the theatre, both professionally and as a community participant. It is vibrant, diverse, and unique to what I've experienced in my life. I believe this opportunity to study acting for a year in England will not only build up on previous experiences, but will challenge me to break away from comformity and come out of my shell. I enjoy reaching out to others as different characters, delivering lines with power and emotion, and even seeing audience members come up to me and saying that I somehow made a difference in their day or lives. I love to learn new things, and I feel this opportunity to be educated in a different environment will make me more aware and respectful of the world around me.

I'm a proud believer that every little bit helps, and I know that little things can become big things over time. Even if you can't donate right now, spreading the world through social media, emails, or sharing the news with friends, neighbors, and families will make a big difference. Even just sending positive vibes will be a big help as well. Please help in anyway possible - donations, prayers, even spreading the word! Thank you so much for taking the time to assist me in making my dream a reality!

    Important News!
    Hi, everyone!
    It's been a busy time of year for many people, particularly with the new administration in place. I know there have been many political posts exploding on social media in the past few weeks, but I hope no one has forgotten about my campaign...

    I have some important news and updates to share with you. First of all, I had my first audition with one of my school choices on 23 January 2017. It went very well, and everyone there was extremely helpful! Hopefully, there will be a positive response to both my application and my audition. Next, due to unexpected financial pitfalls, I have had to curtail my school choices from six to three in order to accommodate my options for auditions in February and March of this year. My three choices are LAMDA, East 15, and Drama Studio London. I will be removing the remaining links to the other three universities/academies as soon as I can contact the Fund My Travel help desk to see what can be done. Finally, I edited some more sections of my main paragraphs because of recent updates - I did not end up making it to the second round of the Fulbright scholarship, but I will be looking for more scholarship opportunities within the next few months that I will be applying for.

    It'll be almost eight months before I plan on attending grad school this September, and I'm concerned that not enough people have been spreading the word about my campaign. So, I leave it up to you - what do you want me to do in order to make sure my voice is heard? Should I post more updates? Should I send a personal email to those who are interested? I can't do this alone. I need as much support and encouragement as possible if this fund is to succeed. Please let me know what I can do to improve the campaign, and please be sure to continue sharing my fundraiser with others.

    Thanks!

    Happy New Year!
    Happy 2017, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's. Now, it's back to work with this campaign. I'm going to lower the amount of money needed for this fundraiser since it's just a tad bit too high right now. But I still need your help and support in getting the word out to everyone you know and to get this campaign rolling. Back in December, I've submitted two applications to two of my choices, and will hopefully work on the rest of the applications this month in order to make auditions between January-March. I can't say this enough, but thanks to those who are taking the time out to share my fundraiser to everyone and anyone they know. I can't do this without you. Happy 2017!
