BENEFITING: MUSIC CHANGING LIVES
EVENT DATE: Aug 04, 2013
WHAT I WANT TO DO:
I WANT TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARTY & STARTUP A MCL CENTER IN THAILAND WHILE DOCUMETING MY JOURNEY!
I am a student at the University of California, Riverside and I was recently introduced to the topic of studying abroad in Thailand. I decided to do this because I know it will contribute to my own education and experience but I realize that I will not be here for the expansion of Music Changing Lives to the Los Angeles county. Therefore, I would like to expand the non-profit organzation while I am abroad in Thailand. I will be leaving Fall 2013 (August 1) for 5 months and I feel like this would be the perfect opportunity to not only experience a term abroad but also spread the love and joy of Music Changing Lives. There is talent everywhere but it just takes one person to be able to show it to the world. I am requesting funds for initial startup to buy cameras to document my time (and make a documentary) there where I am able to put up pictures and videos so that I am able to put it on social media sites. I, then want to travle to different schools and see which location would be the most benefiting to start up. Upon site, I would know further what I will need but I will keep my sponsors updated constantly.
My name is Phi Nguyen. I grew up in the LAUSD district, which is one of the worst school districts across the nation. I strongly believe that although we may be considered one of the worst school districts; I was able to conquer that obstacle because of the programs that were offered to me at the school.
I am involved with a non-profit organization called Music Changing Lives and we work with underpriviliged and high risk schools to offer them music, art, dance, and guideance in the right direction. As of now, we work with two schools in the Riverside district and we are branching out to the LAUSD district this upcoming year. I am excited because I know that this is only the start in helping guide children in the right direction in life.
