My decision to start a GoFundMe campaign was not an easy one, but I knew it had to be done. I really want to exhibit my work with my peers and a girl has got to do what a girl has got to do…or so I think the saying goes.
I created the campaign page a while back, but decided not to act on it until earlier this month, when I realised that I just won’t have enough money to produce my work to be exhibited in June. I really want taking part in the exhibition to be the pinnacle of my four years in University and I want it to be special. I also know, by exhibiting, I will get to network with a lot of people during the private view of our Degree Show and to me that would be a great opportunity to potentially get ‘seen’ with my work in full view of the public 😬.
So, this is just a quick blog post to ask for your help. Click on the GoFundMe button on the right hand side of my blog for more details – DONATE & SHARE. Your support will be highly appreciated. 🙏🏾 👍🏾
