My name is Casey-Lynn Barnard. I am 16 years old and come from the small and friendly town of Despatch in the Eastern Cape. I am driven, passionate and a born performer.
It would be a great honour to go and compete in New York City. It has been a dream of mine since I was 4 years old and started with my very first dance class.
The last couple of years I have been competing and performing all over South Africa in competitions such as Talent Africa and The South-African Championships Of The Performing Arts.
I am a Triple Threat competitor as I am a gold medalist in not only dance, but acting and vocals as well, obtaining my provincial and national colours in all three categories.
This year I won 8 gold medals at the South African Nationals Talent Africa where I recieved special awards and placed under the Top 10 dancers and actors out of more than 2000 entries.
It would be a great opportunity and life changing experience to go and compete New York for the very first time, because performing is not only a passion, but my lifeline.
I am campaigning to raise funds for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent my school, my hometown, my province and ultimately my country in America.
The trip includes workshops with international talent as well as excursions and activities relating to the performing arts, not to mention that I will have the opportunity to share a stage with and compete against the world's best.
The funds that I raise will be used to cover travel costs, accommodation, workshops and excursions along with my entry fees for the Talent America Competition.
If I raise enough funds to embark on this epic journey, I know that it will not only have an impact on my worldview, but a much greater impact on me as a dancer, performer and person.
I will opt to give back upon my return, sharing my experience and knowledge with others. Going to New York will give me the opportunity to be an ambassador for my country and a role model for my peers.
Any contribution will be truly valued.
