Take Aphiwe to the New York Film Academy

Take Aphiwe to the New York Film Academy

Personal message

My name is Aphiwe Mpikashe and I am 24 years old and an aspiring film actress.  I'm currently staying in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, but was born and bred in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape.

I was born in a small town called Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, a place where drug dealers and taxi drivers are role models,  a place where young people do not dream beyond their circumstances and where a lot of things are impossible to achieve. It has always been a dream of mine to go beyond the limitations of my society, to reach for the stars and  to show those behind me that we can be whatever and whoever we want to be, we can break the cycle and create something bigger and better than what we always see.

Being accepted in New York Film Academy (acting for film 2 year program)  was and is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. It signifies a dawn of a new day, and most importantly, it assures me that what I see in myself is also seen by an international platform.

I come from a family where my grandmother is the sole provider of the family, though I  knew this, I went ahead and applied in New York Film Academy, cause I  believed in my dreams despite of my circumstances. I would really appreciate any form of help from anyone.

I need help with tuition, accommodation, flights and visa.  Here is a breakdown:

Tuition (1st semester) :R210000
Registration : R7500
Visa: R5000
Flight : R10000 (varies)
Accommodation(1st semester) : R89 436

The donations will help me realize my dreams. I will get thorough training from best film school in the world.
