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!

    Hi, everyone...

    It's been a rough few weeks for me. I had to come to accept that I wasn't accepted to either university choices, and come to some major decisions on my part.

    For starters, I've decided to reapply to graduate school for next year. This time, I will have six potential choices, one of which is in Wales, and will be starting the process of writing personal statements this month. The applications won't open until October/November 2017, so I have some time to gather my materials together so I can be ready to fill out the forms online.

    I've also decided to look into acting classes to help strengthen my skill set as an actor. There are a few universities and colleges in the area that I'm looking into that could help me. I feel like after not being a consistent actor like a lot of people have been, I could use all of the help I can get to get into the craft and really develop my confidence as a performer. Furthermore, I will be looking into acting opportunities throughout the Maryland/DC/Virginia area to build up my credits and get an inside look into being an actor again.

    But where does that leave the campaign, you might ask? Well, it will still be up and running for the remainder of the time it has. But I will be most definitely setting it up again with added changes and rewards for those that donate. All I ask is for your continued support and prayers to spread the word, and even possibly donate to my cause. This is something I really want to do, and I don't want this dream to die anytime soon.

    Thank you all very much for your continued thoughts and prayers...

    Second Result - Rejection
    Hello again...

    This is harder for me to type than it is for me to say, but I received a response from my second grad school choice, and it was another rejection. I'm devastated right now, and I'm unsure of what my next step will be. Any prayer or positive vibes for guidance would be helpful right now...
