Help me pay for tuition at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy

My name is Jessica Santoyo. I dream of becoming an audio engineer one day and aspire to create and produce some kick ass music. I have been accepted to attend Tribeca Flashpoint Academy in Chicago but need help raising money to pay for tuition. I’m hoping to raise enough to pay for my first year at Flashpoint.

My musical obsession began at a mighty young age of 6 years old when I fell in love with Classical Music. I had such a mature ear for good music; I was drawn to play the most under-rated instrument in the string family, the Viola. The only problem, I was too small to hold even the smallest viola size, so instead they replaced the strings on a violin with viola strings. Eventually my arms grew long enough to hold an actual viola, and the rest is history. Starting my career as a musician helped train my musical ear, as well as prepare me for my future. I continue to play my viola even till this day, and have been a member of some amazing orchestra's, including Elgin Youth Symphony, Schaumburg Youth Symphony, and even IMEA. At age 12, after discovering my voice, I began training and competing in singing competitions. That experience led me to audition for a girl group, and the artist in me truly began to blossom. We worked with Chicago's best up an coming producers and songwriters, performed all over Chicago, as well as Florida, New York, Los Angeles and even Cannes, France. I began to experiment with writing my own songs, and assisting with the production of my own music. I fell in love with creating music in the studio. And thus begins a new chapter in my musically obsessed life.



This is where you come in, I need your help. Instead of Starbucks this week, or a pack of cigs, or even tap water instead of bottled water, $10 can make a huge difference in my life. Please help me raise money for school.

- Love Jessica
