Caruso Goes To Hollywood

Personal message

My name is Caruso Mwachoweka. I am 19 years old, and currently studying Matric in Gauteng, South Africa.

I have a passion for drama and aspire to be an actor. I have the opportunity to go to Orlando Florida in The United States of America for the Applause Rising Talents Showcase, which will take place between the 3rd and the 7th of July. Here, I will perfect skills such as acting for film, monologue, TV commercials, and improvisation.

I need to have all of my affairs in order by the 31st and would appreciate your support with donations to help me make this dream a reality. Your funding will cover the course, my travel, and accommodation expenses as well as other administration costs including a travel visa.

It will mean a lot to me to be able to fulfill this lifelong dream of becoming an international actor. There is a lot riding on this, as this trip may also open up the door for me to study at the New York Film Academy once I am done with my Matric.

So, while I may not be going to Hollywood, yet, your contribution might just get me there one day. Thank you again for taking the time to read my story. I sincerely appreciate any help received.

God bless you,
Caruso

My costs consist of plane flights (R29783), the Applause Rising Showcase package (R75980) which includes 2 intensive boot camps, opportunities to win awards and scholarships, media branding and portfolio training, Exposure to agents and Talent Scouts, 7 nights shared accommodation at the Orlando World Centre Marriot Hotel, 2 Nights shared at the Hilton Hotel (Time Square), New York City Sightseeing tour, Five full convention days, Arts Program book, Workshops of over 20 hours of instruction onsite at the ARTS convention Professional Photoshoots and Marketing Material. My affairs will also cover a Contestants performance package which includes a Showcase DVD ($300) and Showcase photography ($150). As well a traveling visa (R850), extra form of accommodation ($1428,57) and Extra showcase performance categories ($85 each)
