THE STORY:

This campaign has been created to help my family and I make the dream of attending the Interlochen arts academy come true. I experienced their arts camp this summer on a full scholarship and it was extremely impactful and life-changing. I believe that going to the Interlochen Arts Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
