Dear whoever's listening,
My name is Mackenzie Weiss, I am a senior at Life high school Waxahachie
and I am in desperate need of scholarship money.
Currently, I fill out 10 scholarship applications a week.
I have already been accepted to
Southwestern Assemblies of God University
in Waxahachie Texas,
and man is it expensive!
I am so excited to get the opportunity to attend,
but it sure is scary to have to face student loans.
I’m trying to do everything that I possibly can to minimize the amount
I have to take out, and I hope that just maybe
I won’t have to take out any.
I want to major in Theatre Education,
I am excited to be able to teach the things that I love to high school students.
Theatre made a huge impact in my life,
nowhere else have I encountered such a family.
Joining theatre gave me an opportunity
to use my voice,
to impact people,
and to bring to life another side of social issues we don't always see.
My first year we performed a play called "To See The Stars,"
and we brought awareness to the unfairness
of what factory girls and immigrants went through,
and what people still go through.
It gave people a deeper understanding
of the issue of immigration.
Theatre gifts people with
and most importantly, a voice.
I want to give that to students,
and to leave an impact on them like my theatre program left on me.
An aspiring student with a lack of funds.
