Thanks to the generosity of my family and friends, and to a couple of very exciting show contracts, I can safely say that I WILL be attending the Royal College of Music in September as I have raised enough funds for the first 2 terms. I now need one last little push to get me to the end of the year.
When I received my acceptance letter at the start of this journey I was filled with shock that I had got in, joy when I processed this information as it has been a lifelong goal, and finally dread! How was I going to find £10 500 for fees and nearly the same again for living costs?! Well, thanks to you all I am closer than I could have ever imagined. I do keep saying it, but I have been utterly blown away and humbled by the generosity of people, so thank you.
Just one more leg and I will be there.
