I believe that everyone should study abroad once in their life, because to get the opportunity to travel across Earth and experience a new culture with strangers can really affect you. I'm a 14 year old that's living in a very rural town in WI. I've always dreamed of traveling around the world, but I didn't think the chance was very high. However, recently I got a chance: I received an opportunity to study abroad in the beautiful city of Lishui, in China during the next semester in February. But as you all probably know, studying half way across the globe costs quite a bit of money. Usually, a trip like this will cost near $10,000, but I consider myself sort of lucky because the school in China is a sister school of a university near where I live, so it'll only cost about $6000. Still, thats not a small amount. My parents have already agreed to pay half, but I have to somehow come up with the other few thousand dollars. I've already saved up a couple hundred, but I'm still nowhere near close to my goal, and I also have only about 2-3 months to raise all the funds. I really want to take this chance and go to China, because I might not ever get a chance like this again. So, needless to say, I would really, really appreciate some help of any kind.
