I was raised by a single mother, who worked as a domestic worker for years to raise me and my sisters. I had a difficult childhood and unfortunately also suffered through abuse growing up. But that never stopped me from achieving my goals and today I'm one of the candidates selected to go and perform at the iPop International Presentation of Performers! This is a dream come true for me! I really believe that my background and education in performing arts will give me the edge I need to succeed.
This is not just an opportunity for me to change my life, but also a chance for me to give my family a better life, and share with my community what I have learned through the years. I hope to inspire others to know and understand that it doesn't matter where you come from; you can change your life!
The only thing standing in the way of me achieving my dream is the finances needed to make it to Los Angeles. I'm raising funds to cover my flights and accommodation, entrance and workshop fees, as well as my Visa and portfolio shoot.
