Claudia University Dream
Organized by: Claudia Quesada
My dream since I was a little girl in Cuba was to be a performer. People often criticized me and asked me what I would do with THAT diploma? I ignored them and simply decided to follow my heart. I've tried through the years to study theatre attending Teatro Prometeo’s Conservatory in Theatre Arts and studying Music at Miami Dade College to learn as much as possible about my craft.
So after years of deciding whether or not to do a BFA I finally went for it. I am the first one in my family to go to a University and so I want to make them proud. Since I wanted to take my career to the next level I auditioned to different schools around the country and chose the Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago after being admitted to a class of 32 out of close to the 800 who auditioned.
As you know pursuing a degree is not an easy task and is very expensive, which is what has prevented me all this year in moving foward, but I finally said "let's do this" but I still need the help of all of you to complete my payment for this first term.
Anything you can donate I'm sure will be more than I had at first place. I need to pay for tuition, books, needs for my Theatre School, among other things needed as a first year student.
I felt weird creating this page to ask for support but they say that "if you dont ask the asnwer will always be NO" and I thought to myself "Why not? So HERE I AM.
Once again anything from $1 to $1000 or more (if you happen to have won the Lotto, haha) is welcomed. I will really appreciate it.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I promise I will make the best out of this school experience.
