I am Mine van Rensburg. I am 11 years old. My passion is DRAMA, writing, drawing and horseriding. I go to DIE POORT Laerskool in Pretoria and I am in the TOP 30 of my grade (14th). I am also a student at HARTKLOP DRAMA ACADEMY. I live on a smallholding in Roodeplaat, Gauteng, South Africa. I do Dramatical arts and also write my own plays. I take part in Afrikaans and English Orators at my school and also actat different art festivals and competitions.
I took part in the South African Championships for Performing Arts (SACOPA) in 2019 and qualified to join TeamSA to participate at The World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Los Angeles. I am thrilled to have qualified in my first year of participating.
Funds are needed to pay the expenses of being part of TeamSA who will attend the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in Los Angeles in 2020.
This a dream come true. My dream is to become an actress and this is a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. It would be such a privilege to be able to participate at this level. The cost for this opportunity is far beyond my parents reach. It is already a challenge for them to fund my training and competitions. Because of my age SACOPA expects that a parent (my mother) accompanies me on this tour. Without funding, I will not be able to follow my dream.
I need to reach my target by 15 May 2020.
Breakdown of costs:
R75 000 is the package for being part of the team and all costs involved. It does not include meals but it includes all other expenses such as SA clothes, transport, accommodation, visas enrollment fees for competition, etc... So I need approximately an additional 50 dollars per day for meals and other expenses (pocket money). The cost for my mother to accompany me is R55000 that includes all expenses except meals and pocket money which is an additional 50 dollar per day...
Your donations can make this opportunity possible and help me to fulfill this dream. The experiences this tour will bring for someone at the age of 11 will be numerous and the value added to my life through being part of such an opportunity will be life-changing. Without donations, this opportunity might not be possible.
Funds raised will go into a savings account opened specially for this cause.
