Painting the Town Red

If only we had more students willing to work for their college degree… sigh. I know I am not popular when I give my opinion about letting their child fail or succeed on their own – and that means paying for most of their way for school (says the one who graduated with no debt). Working for something you really want not only gives you satisfaction but also irreplaceable experience. Check out how cool this idea is.

Alex Lopez is a combination of great talent and ambition. He is ready to go off on his own to the competitive New York Conservatory. What does he decide to do?? He wants to raise some of his tuition costs by entertaining folks for the night – very enterprising of him! Obviously, at his young age, he is not afraid of hard work and figuring ways to make his own success. This was stated in the facebook announcement:

Esteemed actor Alex Lopez has officially been accepted to the prestigious New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts. This concert will be sure to entertain any and all that choose to help defray tuition costs. Join us for a night of immense entertainment, song, dance, and special guests Linda Reyes, Stephanie Solis Schneider, and Hector Rios!!

Tickets for this benefit concert can be purchased in advance or at the door. $25 is a meager price for this night of amazing talent. Please join us and invite everyone you can.

To buy tickets in advance, call Mara Lopez at 956-203-8850.

His parents must be so proud! I’m not related but I am proud of his initiative :). Here is the info with the hope that you can support this very promising young man:

      Which brings me back to the more recently ignored concept that an adult should be responsible for him/herself. Glad Alex is taking on the transition to adulthood with responsibility & not solely depending on his parents.

      I don’t know their financial status but Alex’s initiative should be modeled – a
      show sure beats all my early jobs to pay the rent :).

    Kudos! Ambition + a great work ethic form the underlayment of success.
