The Story

Hello family, friends and fellow humans alike. I'm ecstatic to announce that I'm accepted to NYU Tisch Asia. This journey of pursuing my deep passion for filmmaking is taking me all the way to Singapore! I’m working diligently on financial aid and student loans to fund my tuition and I'm reaching out for help with travel and living expenses in Singapore. I know, $20K is a big number, tell me about it, but any little bit helps! I would love to have your support, whether it's financial or just passing the word on! I will post pictures and keep you posted on my journey to grad school in Singapore.

I just finished my fundraising video yesterday.  It was so much fun to make!  It just proves why going back to school and pursuing my real passion is what I am suppose to do right now.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

I finally got my passport! My deposit has been sent and I'm waiting to hear back about financial aid. I bought my ticket to move back east to live with my Grandfather for a month, get my affairs in order and say goodbye to my family and friends before my trip. I still feel like none of this actually happening to me. I don't think it will really sink in until I buy my plane ticket to Singapore.
