Dear Village, I have finally made it, I'm going to college! I was accepted to my first choice, the College for Creative Studies, a top art school, and with a partial scholarship. :) Now, I need your help.
I always knew that I would be a visual artist: Art teacher; fashion designer; animator... My professional aspirations, and a tendency to doodle on everything, was the writing on the wall -- sometimes literally. But, I wasn't always sure I'd get this far. With some serious encouragement, I worked really hard to earn my 4.1 GPA and 17 college credits, nine of them at CCS, while still in high school.
Over 80% of my tuition and fees have been covered by my scholarships, grants, commitment from my family, and two small student loans. However, art school is pretty expensive, so I am striving to raise the rest with your help. Education is the passport to your dreams. Your support will secure my place as a member of the class of 2023 in Communication Design at the College for Creative Studies and open many doors to my success!
No matter the amount, I am so grateful and thankful for your gift to me. As my parents always remind my siblings and me, to whom much is given, much is required. I promise that I will represent my village well and I will pay your kindness and your investment in me -- forward.
With love and lots of appreciation,
