" MusicHelps NZ has made the completion of my postgraduate opera studies in London possible.

After being diagnosed with stage three melanoma in my first 6 months of study, I was facing a year-long course treatment and my ability to financially support myself through international study was severely compromised. The support from the Benevolent Fund has allowed me to complete my studies and even thrive at Trinity Laban Conservatoire in spite of obvious challenges. I am so grateful for this charitable support while I embark on my operatic career in the UK. "
