First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this.
My name is Madeleine Ellen Black, and I am 15 years old.
I start Year 11 in two thousand and nineteen (2019). This is a major milestone in my schooling career as I will begin to study specifically for my HSC Examinations in two thousand and twenty (2020).
I go to Reddam House, a private co-ed school in Bondi, Sydney, NSW, Australia. I adore my school, so my dad works very hard to earn enough money to keep me there. It’s been hard on him, as I’m sure it is for many.
It would be my absolute dream to study at the Paris College of Arts and earn a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts. Art and poetry are the two things I am most passionate about in this world. They are the two things that keep me going when all I want to do is give up. I’ve learnt french at school since I was in Year 2 and I plan to continue to do so right threw to my exams. It is such a beautiful language.
However, I could never expect my dad to pay so much money for my education. He struggles greatly to pay my school fees, let alone earn enough for me to move overseas and study in a completely foreign country. It would absolutely crush him if he knew how much I want this for myself. He is too hard on himself and it would cause him so much pain knowing he wasn’t able to give it to me. I’d like to save up enough to pay for it all myself so that he won’t have to worry.
I have a job at a pizza shop called Crust, but as I am a minor I don’t earn high wages and I can’t work full-time anywhere as I am still in school.
It would mean the absolute world to me if you could help me raise some money to go towards this dream of mine. The smallest amount could go such a long way.
Thank you again, I love you all.
