"The funding towards my tuition fees provided me with the support I needed and gave me a new abundance of energy." - Sonya Stephan

Although initially the choice for me to go back to school was not something I was sure about, three years of studies has confirmed that this is the right path for me to take at this moment in my life. Being a 39 year old single mother of a four and half year old girl, means a lot of late nights and creative scheduling, integrating my student role with family and work requirements. Having my expenses partially covered allowed me to spend a little less time worrying about tuition payments and more time balancing studying and parenting. The last two years have given me new opportunities and allowed me to appreciate my experience as a dancer and infuse that into my films. DTRC’s funding towards my tuition fees has provided me with the support I needed and gave me a new abundance of energy towards my academics allowing me to flourish in my program of study.
