Thank you for having an interest in my cause! Fortunately, my prayers have been answered! I have been chosen as a recipient of the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship. This organization has given me the funds needed to cover the rest of my costs!
I would like to thank those who have already donated and those who simply supported me throughout this time. Thank you for not losing hope. I will make you proud :).
On January 30th, 2013 I am embarking on the journey of a lifetime. I will be studying abroad in Madagascar for 15 weeks. Throughout this time I will be camping out in the wilderness, residing in small villages with host families, as well as living with classmates who will be sharing this experience with me. I would like to start off my saying thank you all so much for supporting me! I wouldn't be here if it weren't for my friends, family, and teachers who have motivated me to reach for my dreams and pursue my deepest desires. For my abroad experience, I am currently around $3,000 short. These leftover expenses include airfare, medical costs, and other related traveling fees that my school and loans won't cover. Any donation will be a promising investment into my future. Thank you!!!!
