I am looking to raise money towards the American Academy of Dramatic Arts tuition fees.

by Tom Stevo in Water End, Hertfordshire, England

For many years I been have working hard to secure a place at an Acting School. This year I wanted to push myself by applying for one of the world's most prestigious and renowned acting schools, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. This school has produced some of the world's most successful actors and actresses. Anne Hathaway, Robert Redford, Danny DeVito, Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Paul Rudd, Grace Kelly, Jessica Chastain (amongst countless others) are just a selection of successful actors that this institution has produced. 

I have just received the news that I have been accepted into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts and this is a dream come true. This is such an incredible opportunity for me. I have been dreaming of training and working in Los Angeles for as long as I have wanted to be an actor and now this dream is one step closer. 

My love for acting started when I joined The Pump House Theatre in Watford when I was 12. For 10 years I had the opportunity to play some incredible roles which include Riff “West Side Story”, Danny “Grease”, Gomez “The Addams Family”, Seymour “Little Shop of Horrors” amongst countless others. As I progressed from the Children’s Theatre into the Youth Theatre, I had the opportunity to direct the Children’s Theatre just as many others had done for me. I studied drama at school and since leaving have been taking acting classes and taking jobs as a supporting artiste to ensure I am always completely immersed in the industry that I want to be a part of. 

I have dedicated the majority of my life to being an actor and now I have been accepted into the American Academy. All of my hard work has now rewarded me with a once in a lifetime opportunity and I have to take it. It is said that you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, and this is one that I have to take. 

I am unable to get any student loans from the UK or the US government so I need all the help I can get to accrue the money I need to pay for the tuition fees. 

Any donation would be an enormous help. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I will make sure you’re part of my journey through every step I take.

Every person who donates will receive a diary of my first 2 weeks in Hollywood so you can see how incredible your donations have been.
