I'm doing a skydive in order to raise money to help my sister with her fees for drama school so she can persue her dream. Chantelle is the most talented person I know and is nothing less than a star in the making. As well as being her sister and friend I am her biggest fan and I couldn't be more proud of her.

This is her story...

​​At the age of 17 I moved away from friends and family in Aberdeen to attend a 2 year Musical Theatre preparation course in hope of achieving a place at a top drama school. I have recently found out that I was succesful in doing so and achieved a place at The Urdang Academy- My top choice!


Moving away from my friends and family was very difficult. I had to grow up very quickly taking on a job as well as full time education and surviving living away from home for the first time. I was so driven by my ambition to get into the performing arts industry that i had to keep my head down and get on with it.
​​

From the age of 5 my parents took me to dance lessons every night, which from the start was very expensive. Knowing how happy it made me they didn't mind this. To this day my parents still support me as much as they can, but with fees of £12,500 and living cost of £9,000 it is very difficult to achieve my goal.


Performing has now turned into my life. I feel very privelaged that i wake up every day knowing that i will be doing the things that i love. Although it is very hard work and tiring i wouldn't change it for the world!


 Hundreds of people apply to The Urdang Academy every year and i feel very lucky that i am one of the few to be offered a place. I would be heartbroken to have to turn down this place because of money issues. I am currently working a full time job as well as in college full time to save money for my course, i am also holding various fundraising events over the summer. I would really appreciate any and all donations and it would be a huge help.


Thankyou for taking the time to read ​this, Chantelle Jamieson xxxxx
