A lot of folks nowadays dream of becoming the next big thing. It’s a wonderful notion, but more often than not, dreamers get squashed by life’s reality. The reality of paying bills, pressure to become a successful individual, and the pursuit of stability. Most of us fold when hit with these issues. I am not most. I am an ex Pre-Med student, who dropped off from college to pursue the arts. I am a singer/songwriter, aspiring of course. I am also a model and an actor, struggling. It’s a tough road I have chosen for myself and sometimes I even want to throw in the towel. However, I am committed and I have a plan, which is where you come in. I am currently teaching myself how to play the guitar so I have the freedom to write and be inspired at any moment. This means I can’t keep working low paying nightly jobs for 50 -60 hrs. a week including weekends. A Scholarship to an online college would enable me to get a degree that opens regularly scheduled jobs that pay well enough to support me. This is not my plea for help, I’m merely asking you to give me a fighting chance to succeed in this cut – throat world. Thank you.
