My Travel Story

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

For four years, I've been having dreams of returning to England to pursue my master's degree. This particular nation is central to the performing arts because of its many acting schools and programs at universities that bring out the very best performers from there. And for four years, I've never given up that dream. I would like to go to university at one of the six academies listed in my links, and I plan to start applying for them this fall. I have applied for a major Fulbright scholarship for one of the academies I'm interested in, and I will search and apply for more throughout the next few months.

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!

    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!

    Hi, everyone! I'm sorry for the lack of updates lately, but things have been very busy for me as I prepare for the holiday season. (Note the wand and time-turner in my picture. Harry Potter, anyone???) One of the things I'm grateful for this Thanksgiving is the help of good people like you who are taking the time to look at this fundraiser and spreading the word in anyway possible. Let's keep it up!

    I'll mention this in the main description, but I've applied to a major scholarship for one of the programs this past summer. I hope to hear positive things from it in December 2016/January 2017. I hope to find more scholarships relatively soon so that I can start applying for them as well. If anyone knows of scholarships that I can apply for, please send them my way! Much appreciated!

    Please continue to look at this fundraiser page for updates. I've taken out a lot of details that were taking up space, and I still have my donor rewards out there as well . Please take the time to read this and spread the word, or even donate!

    I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and give thanks for the things you have, and the things yet to come. Cheers!
