Why Alex needs your financial help

Alex is currently taking an M.A in Scoring for Film & Visual Media in Dublin, Ireland at Pulse College (Dublin Institute of Technology). Feeling like he has reached a creative limit as to what he can achieve in Singapore on his own, he decided to pursue his higher education at one of the most respected and renowned film-scoring programs (Tutors include renowned composer Christopher Young [Spiderman 3, Drag Me To Hell], Music Composer/Orchestrator Conrad Pope [The Hobbit, Star Wars], Andy Hill [Ex-VP at Walt Disney Pictures Music Production Division],  Garry Schyman [Bioshock] and more. He has taken a 50,000 (SGD, 1 SGD = 0.7 USD) personal loan for his studies and has a wife and kid to support. We implore that you help finance his education so that he is able to solely focus on his studies. This will allow him to achieve greater excellence in his craft as a film composer and maximize his time here at Pulse College, Ireland.
