Subject: Very well said. We all make choices, she needs to live with hers not get the rest of us to pay for them.
In reply to: l 's message, "I think this particular gofundme has ruffled so many feathered because we ID parents are well aware of the financial toll it takes on our families to have a child in this activity, and much more so in the case of a top dancer. More inside" on 22:46:33 06/29/17 Thu

Isn't the saying, "You made your bed, now lie in it"? In this case it's not as if she will have to forgo law school all together, just that she will have to take out loans in order to do so. Which most other people in law school have to do as well.

One of the things that really bothered me was her story that her poor mother worked 3 jobs to pay for her dance lessons. She didn't mention that she flew overseas at least 4 times a year, purchased 1-2 costumes a year that cost several thousand dollars, etc., etc. How many struggling single family homes do you know who travel overseas 4+ times a year? How many regular middle class families with two incomes do you know who travel overseas 4+ times a year? Honestly, how many upper class families do you know who travel overseas 4+ times a year? Excessive to say the least. How much could have been saved if they didn't make those trips?

Those were the choices she made.
