# FUTURE SA BALLERINA NALELI HLALELE – GOAL R400 000
I am writing this letter as a young girl named Naleli Hlalele, born in Clayville-Tembisa. I was born on the 23rd of October 2007, and is a Grade 5 (B) pupil, at Wierda Park Primary. I have been given an opportunity for a ballet summer school in New York City, with a chance to cement my place in a long 4-year program.
I made it through the auditions at Joburg ballet, as I have been a student under their foundation since 2015, and was one of a few selected from South Africa auditions, which was conducted at NSA in January 2018. The auditions pamphlet had indicated an age group of 12yrs to 25yrs which I did not meet, but I requested my parents to enrol me and I took my chance to compete with very skilled and experienced students, and I made it.
The reason for this letter is to seek funding for travelling, accommodation and lifestyle maintenance for me and my guardian during our stay in attendance. It is a 3 week. Summer Intensive program in June 2018 and followed by the 2-week advance program in September 2018. The cost breakdown can be provided if needed.
With this opportunity, I will meet other professional’s and learn from them, build a relationship and eventually will be able to reach my goal of building my own school in the Metro City of Ekurhuleni (Tembisa-Ivory Park Section ) where I can share my skill and experience. Hopefully, this initiative will save children from drug use and rape, but it can also produce young business ladies and gentlemen in the future.
I am willing to even arrange an interview should a need arise.
If you would like to view the program this school offers you can go and have a look at their web site.
