I'm Dwayne Mitchell and i'm just a guy trying to find some help so i can chase my dreams of becoming an audio engineer.

Hi, My names is Dwayne Mitchell.the reason I'm here is because i need some help any help i can get with college.

In this life we all have certain things that we seem to draw close to and mine is music. I've had a deep love for it ever since i was little. While my friends were playing sports or video games i was always somewhere with a pair of headphones listening to music. By the time i got to high school i was recording my friends, and decided that audio engineering was what i wanted to do with my life. I started searching for schools and found a couple of nice ones, but at the time my family was having problems and i chose to stay around and help. Since every school i had researched needed at least a 40 hour commitment a week i decided to go to community college and get a degree in something i could do on the side to make money if i did in fact get to a school for recording mainly because i wouldn't have any body to ask for help. my plan was to go to school find a job and get settled so i could come home and open a studio for the people around my city who have talent but cant find the means to pay for studio time. So they either go down the wrong path or lose hope in everything while becoming a statistic.

While in school i found out about this new school called Flashpoint academy located in Chicago which is way cheaper and a better personal fit for me. I went for a tour in fell in love with the school. After the tour i decided to apply and traveled back to Chicago for an interview and got accepted. The only problem is that they are a new school so i cant go through the fafsa and get the extra money that i need.

The reason i'm looking to raise so much is because the only money i will receive is for tuition. The school doesn't have dorms so i'll have to find an apartment on top of being in a city where i don't really know to many people. And i have to purchase equipment for school such as a mac, recording software, and other things and living expenses. I'm trying my best to work over 40hrs a week but i not sure if this will be enough due to the fact i still have to pay the bills i have now while i'm trying to save up and you never know when an emergency will arise..
The reason i have gone into so much detail is because i don't any one to think that i'm trying scam them. honestly i really prideful person and i hate asking anyone for anything, but this is really what i wanna do and the only way i will is if i find some source of help.
