Support the Future of Brandonia

In May of 2018 I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelors of Art in Dance, and Minor in Africana Studies. I am so proud to have made it this far, but the journey has only just begun. Now as I move on to create Art and movement that inspires and moves hearts, I need your help to make the transition.

 

Not only do I have considerable debt from student loans, but I also have a very important dance retreat I have been accepted to attend in July 2018, called the CSU Summer Arts Program. I am excited to attend the Summers Arts "The 'IT' Factor" two week dance retreat, because there will be many established artist coming to mentor and teach us students how to stand out as dancers in the dance world. The networking opportunities I will have from this retreat will also be invaluable. The only problem though is costs, and with the rising costs of the Bay Area and my re-entry into full-time workforce, I fear I might not have time to raise the funds on my own.   

With housing, tuition, and food, the retreat costs come to a total of $2,369. This of course does not include travel cost to Fresno CA from my home in the Bay Area. I luckily I have received an $1,000 scholarship to attend, but with my budget I still cannot afford the remaining $1,369. 

So it is with this that I ask my friends, family, and supporters to donate any amount you can to help me attain my goals in strengthening my dance technique and creating relationships that will advance my career. No amount is too small, so give from your heart and I will receive it with gratitude.

Donations will be processed through PayPal, so please include your complete name, mailing address, and any words of love and encouragement in the comments section so that I can send thank you's and updates on my fundraising progress. If you have any questions, please feel free to send an email through my Contact Me page.

UPDATE: As of 6/11/18, in consideration of my situation, the CSU Summer Arts Program staff awarded me with an additional $500 scholarship, which brings my total award to $1,500! This leaves me with a total of $869 left in tuition, housing and meal plan fees. The goal is getting closer! :)
