— Juris Efneris and 8 other supporters
Hi, my name is Juris Efneris. I truly believe that every dream is reachable, however sometimes it is necessary to stop and ask for support to move forward.
Currently I am a second year student at HVA, Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI). Institute is ranked as the 20th best fashion school in the world (2015). AMFI priority is creative and talented people who are able to work hard for their passion. Passion for fashion and dedication has awarded me with AMFI's Honors program - an exclusive program that goes beyond the regular semesters. Only few most talented AMFI design students (12) are eligible to take part in the program.
Unfortunately my financial situation is putting my participation in AMFI Honors program at risk. Fashion & Design studies are costly; not only because of the amount of material needed to collect from multiple sampling and developing collection itself- but also because of the practical nature of the training which is taking almost all student's (free) time and makes it particularly impossible to keep a paid job next to it. To date I am endeavored to keep up and fight back my limitations. To complete this program I need a financial support – 6 500 EUR.
At the moment my goal is to get a second bachelor's degree. I got the first graduating from University of Latvia in 2012, obtaining a professional degree in pedagogy: as a teacher of History of culture and Visual Arts. Although I am already 27 years young, my ambition did not end in my professional growth. Unfortunately, trying to apply for any of Latvian, Dutch or any ather scholarships I recieve denial for those exact reasons.
I will be thankful for any amount of support, because I want to expand my talent in order to give my investment in fashion design in Latvia and beyond its borders. This support is crucial for me and it will enable me to keep dreaming big and working hard towards my ambitions.
