Long rant about my guard career:
So on Dec 6-8, I drove my butt up to Indy to audition for the Madison Scouts. After a full weekend of auditioning, I was offered a contract to be a member of the 2020 Madison Scouts Color Guard Cast. I spent the days following the audition deciding if I am actually going to go through with this performance opportunity and ultimately came to the decision that I am not throwing away my shot, I will be signing my contract for the 2020 season.
It feels very unreal to think that I made it this far in my guard career. I would like to take this moment to give a huge thanks to the guard instructors at Scouts for giving me such an incredible learning opportunity to get better and for pushing me to be the best that I can be. I would also like to thank members of BNCG, IUMH, and all my dearest friends from school for being so supportive throughout this entire audition process and for believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself. Furthermore, I gotta give a shout out to every guard director I had for leading me to get to this point. I especially need to give the biggest thanks to Christy Wilson for being my biggest support system since my junior year and for still helping me through my color guard career.
My tour fees will be costing $4600 this season. If that sounds like a lot, that's because it very much is. I cannot pay these fees alone while attending university. I have created a GoFundMe page to help pay for my dues this season (Link in bio). I am asking you guys to please consider donating so that I can march this summer. This really is the only chance I have to take the field so I hope that you can contribute even $5 towards my dues.
Thank you all for the love and support✌️ #DCI2020 #DCI #MadisonScouts #MarchingBand #ColorGuard #WinterGuard #Flag #Sabre #Dance - 42 minutes ago
