The Artistic Mermaid Foundation
As a past student of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts I am acutely conscious of the various struggles, both financially and emotionally, that comes along with attending the institution. Now a lecturer and having recognized the challenges that students face, even more so due to Covid - 19, I was motivated to assist in anyway that would ease their financial burden and in turn their emotional burden.
Therefore alongside my mother, Ms. Maureen Webber, I have taken the initiative to start The Artistic Mermaid Foundation, named so after my current ceramic business. Amongst other objectives this foundation is committed to offering grants to full time ceramic students of the Edna Manley College that are in need and show promise in their field, with a GPA of at lease 2.7 from the previous academic year.
As such The Artistic Mermaid Foundation is offering a grant of $200,000 JMD to Jaunel Anderson towards her tuition at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts and $10,000 JMD to her personal expenses while living on campus.
