At times my passion and drive can be intimidating, overwhelming or even annoying to some. But I know I have the passion and drive to change the world, one step at a time. I have been raised to be an independent woman who follows their dreams. My dreams are simple and have remained focused since I was a small child. My dreams have always been to own an art gallery/studio. Ever since I was in elementary school I have imagined what this would look like, how it would smell, the classes I would teach and the difference I would make within the space of art. I have stayed steadfast on this mission and now is my time. Now is the time to rebuild the community I live in, play in and love. Now is the time for the sense of community to truly be in full swing. Now is the time where you help this happen. I have everything it takes to bring this to a successful level and incorporate all the visions I have and others within the community have. I have everything it takes to bring the community together through art. I am only missing one thing…. money. I have been given an opportunity I can not refuse, but in order for this to take place I need your financial support. The opportunity has been presented to me in such a manner that would allow me to have a store front an actual gallery of my very own. A place fellow artists within the community could call home. This opportunity will allow for the advancement in economic and development within the downtown district of Largo, FL. This town is rich in history and it is bring buried, forgotten and misunderstood. With your donation, no matter how small, we, together will be able to host monthly themed events, celebrate the arts, community, hold classes in areas of interest, grow closer together. But I cannot do this alone. Please consider donating to this effort. It is one of the biggest leaps of faith I have ever been up against, but I know I can do this. I know WE can do this. So, let’s do this. Let’s be that change. Let’s BE the community we want to be. It starts with you.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risk involved with taking this giant leap of faith, is not going after it, letting fears get in the way. The financial risk is there and will always be there for dream chasers, but if we do not set our feet solidly on the ground, we will never see the rewards of our visions. The ongoing question of money and resources is not the challenge once the doors are open. The community will drive the vision to an unsurpassed level of greatness, this I know. I know what our community has to offer and how great the people are within it! We just need to band together and BE the Change we want to see in our world and it starts in our own community.
