Please help me study at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.

My name is Katie Rex and I’m from a small town called Greytown but currently living in Wellington. Since I was a child I liked to perform for my parents and friends. I applied for a scholarship at The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. I have recently been advised of the most exciting news; I have been accepted to The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and given a scholarship of U.S$1500 per year. This is a dream come true. I took the leap, worked hard and it is finally starting to pay off. The only challenge is financing my trip. I need to show U.S$53,126 (NZ$ 81,220.04) in my account to get my visa. I want to follow my dreams and reach my full potential. Going to New York and being able to take advantage of this amazing opportunity will be a big step towards my independence and knowing that the sky is the limit is pricless.

The tuition fees for The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts are U.S$31,200 (NZ$47,699.16) per year, a total of NZ$95,398.32 over the two years, including deposit of U.S$750 (NZ$1,146.61). I have some support from family and friends but I need your help to turn my dream into reality.

My Housing will be approximately U.S$18,367 (NZ$ 28079.82) per year, including deposit of U.S$750 (NZ$1,146.61).

Public transport will be U.S$1049.00 (NZ$1603.73) per year.

Book Supplies will be U.S$250 (NZ$ 382.20) per year.

Health Insurance will be U.S$1,460 (NZ$2232.08) per year.

Personal expenses estimated U.S$800 (NZ$1223.06)

Total Estimated Direct and Indirect Costs U.S$53,126 (NZ$ 81,220.04) per year.

If I don't fundraise enough to go by the 4th January I will re-apply and continue to save to study there later in the semester. Or if you would like I will refund your money back.

Whatever the donation - big or small- I greatly appreciate it!

Thank you all,

Katie Rex

Katie My daughter is a dancer. She has just finished her performing arts degree and moved to London to pursue performance opportunities. So I know that trying to be a performer is a lot harder than trying to be a lawyer. I hope this contribution helps you get where you want to go. Nice essay. Tony
