21, Welllington, New Zealand. I developed CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) in 2005 and since then have lost my ability to walk independently, as well as a significant portion of my vision. I'm a Master's student at the New Zealand School of Music, and a classical singer.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Ailsa Lipscombe.
