Help me with my dance events in UK, Czech Republic & Canada

Namaste! This is Yamini, a Kuchipudi dancer based in Hyderabad, India. Dance is my full time career. I am here in Saint Petersburg, Russia for a performance and a workshop. From here I will be heading to the UK, Czech Republic and Canada to perform and conduct workshops. The itinerary is all planned and I did get paid by the organizers here in Russia and will be paid for the future performances and workshops in the UK, Czech Republic and Canada but unfortunately they are not sufficient for me to get through a whole month abroad in these expensive countries. I am here spending sleepless nights thinking how I am going to sustain myself in these countries. Especially being a dancer I would not want to spend days with an empty stomach. I am already couch surfing to save my accommodation costs but that is not just enough to get through a month. The career of a dancer especially who wants to propagate Telugu culture across the world while traveling extensively is something not definitely easy. Please help me get through a month of  Kuchipudi workshops and performances abroad. It is such a joy traveling but when you are stuck here in a foreign country without enough money is a big tragedy. I decided to be financially independent at the age of 17 and here I see my first big crisis which scares me a lot. I know as soon as you read this a lot of people might judge me and come up with questions that why did I even have to travel in the first place. But guys, if you are really passionate and ambitious about a thing you will never think about the negativity which will hurdle you somehow. Yes, now I see the miserable side of how it is pursue dance full time but I know I will be able to get through this with your support.
Thank you!

Dear Supporters,

I have performed and conducted workshops in the United States and Canada, Russia. My intention was to spread this dance from across the world. But I, unfortunately, was stuck in Finland for some time due to lack of finance and I had to raise money and successfully I got to Canada and represented India in the dance festival.

Thank you so much for the support. I'm now planning to move New York to conduct workshops, perform and work. I just want to thank all of you as this wouldn't have been possible if not for you all.

Thank you once again.
