Happy Holidays and a BIG December vote for you!!

Please check out my "Mud for Art" project...
I am raising money for The California State Summer School Arts Foundation at CalArts. Its mission is to train the next generation of arts professionals in animation, creative writing, dance, film & video, music, theatre, and visual arts. And what better way to raise money for this amazing program than to run through obstacles and mud?! And my next run is coming up soon!!

Your donations will help support low-income, aspiring artists and will enable those students to realize their dreams and aspirations in the arts.

Stuff About Me:

I've never ran a full marathon; Only ever finished a half marathon and by the picture attached I wasn't very happy about it. So I decided to turn that frown upside down and run a full Marathon for charity.

My mother's mission has always been to help others and it tought me to do the same. From an early age we volunteered at shelters, made pack lunches to feed the homeless in our city parks and helped fundraise money for our church. Our home was never short of women and children seeking support. Even now my mother runs a daycare aimed at helping disadvantaged children or foster children who suffer from domestic abuse.When choosing a charity to run for NYAWC hit close to home and I jumped at the chance to support their mission.

NYAWC helps women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. Thier services are tailored to Asian women's cultural, social, economic, and legal circumstances. We offer shelter, counseling, legal assistance, children and teenage programs, assistance with obtaining education, housing, and work. Ultimately, NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

There are many charities which out there which gain a lot of support and attention. Having a family which has experienced or is experiencing various illnesses such as Diabetes and Cancer I know how important they are. However I also know from the work my family does that those at local level receive less attention but have the most immediate impact and therefore I ask for your support in reaching my goal of $2,500. Please dig deep for this great cause and help me help others make a difference.

Thank you! See you in New York :-)
