Having being born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii I have been very blessed. Living on the islands has given me a great sense of community, culture, and diversity. Hawaii has given me experiences that has allowed me to meet all kinds of people from different races, cultures, ethnicities, etc. Yet, when it comes to geography I am not well versed. I have only traveled out of the country once, and I was unfortunately not able to explore very much of it. This upcoming 2019 spring break I will be travelling to Spain, Italy, and France on a once in a lifetime experience through my high school. This trip will be a meaningful experience, I will be able to learn a lot before I head off to college in the Fall of 2019. This trip can help me discover and learn about new cultures, immerse myself in new languages, and help give me insight into my future if i choose to study abroad in college. I am very excited, and any donation is greatly appreciated! Mahalo nui loa, Emma.
