Alieyah's Journey to IMTA New York!
Organized by: Heather Anne
Alieyah attended her first ever entertainment industry audition November 26 & received a call back for November 27th. Alieyah is 1 of 25 chosen from the 1,235 attendees to attend IMTA New York in July, 2017. Two years ago, my husband and I (Alieyah's mom, Heather) began our foster care ministry. We have fostered 3 primary medically fragile infants, two sibling sets and provided respite care for 8 other children (over 250 medical appointments/therapies and 45 days in hospitals has kept Heather from being able to work outside the home last 17 months). In the last two years, Alieyah and her brother have selflessly sacrificed their desires to come alongside all of the children who've entered our home as positive role models, examples of healthy sibling interactions and the best big brother and sister ever! Alieyah has an abundance of natural talent with her singing, acting and performances as a cheerleader. She has won talent shows at school, performed with the advanced choir and won many titles with cheer teams. Alieyah made Varsity Cheerleader prior to our move to a new town, new school district and beginning high school where she knew no one in August. Alieyah strives to excel in all of her academics, is a member of HOSA (Health Occupation Student Association), Choir and continues to cheer. The opportunity to attend IMTA New York model & talent training and the exciting, once-in-a-lifetime IMTA Convention where hundreds of fashion & talent agents, personal managers, casting directors, music producers and more are will give Alieyah more confidence, and unprecedented training in the industry. Alieyah will attend seminars, resume building event and coursework to refine and improve her talents. Sponsorships over $100 will give you/your company printed recognition in the program book that is distributed to every attendee, their parents, industry representatives and more! Our family has come together and have fundraising ideas to assist in reaching the $9,995 goal. Our hopes is to reach $5,000 between now and December 15th. Any amount helps. We will also be creating family t-shirts to wear while traveling and fundraising with the names of every contributor over $20. We greatly appreciate all of you whom have taken the time to read about our fundraising hopes.
