I'm raising money to fund my photography education in Austria.
I believe this education will provide me with great mentorship and a lot of practice, that will help me to become a professional photographer.
Studying photography was my biggest dream since I was 16.
In April I took a leap of faith and went to the media college in Vienna to take a creativity exam. I've never been so stressed and scared in my life, but eventually I got a place!

Austria is great because higher education there is free. However, being a foreign citizen, I need quite a lot of money to support my living and provide me with necessary equipment I don't have.
Laptop - $1000
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED - $1500
Vlogging camera - $300
Living wage – $438.95 x 10 months = $4389.5
Insurance – $54.86 x 10 months = $548.6
Student fee (software, printing) - $109.73
Together: $ 7847,83

Social work is what inspires me and I would love to collaborate with such international organization like UNICEF, Red Cross and Josiah Venture after I graduate.

You can help me make my dream come true by donating any amount of money and/or sharing it with your friends and family. Don't forget to grab your perk!
If you can't contribute, but you want to help - you can email me and suggest your perk for someone's contribution! Like to write a song or a poem, handmade something, do something crazy etc!
Have questions? Feel free to contact me!
