I have been given the opportunity to participate in EF Explore America Trip Organization. It's an organization for High School Students to be able to participate in visiting New York City also known as The Big Apple. The Requested Departure Date is on June 1st, 2017. They create educational programs that blend classroom, digital and experiential learning for students like me. So when we do return home, we’ll be inspired and ready to take on new experiences. In a survey conducted by the Wagner Group, out of 400 adults, those who attended and educational trip as students said the experience set them up for success. To be able to go to New York City has always been my dream ever since I was a little girl and now that I have the opportunity to go, It makes me think, is this a coincidence? Is this really true?
My name is Erika, I'm 16 years old and I come from a very small town about 45 mins away from Houston, Texas. Let's just say I’m not the richest girl in the school, but being able to fundraise and reach out for help, would be so appreciated to me and my family. The money will be used to cover the total costs of the trip including Transportation, Hotel accommodations, Over Night security, Full Time Tour Director, and much more! To be able to go to New York City is a dream come true there is so much history, not to mention the twin towers. It's a very engaging experience, and I'm sure I’ll come back with lots of motivation to help other high school students enroll in participating in the same experience I will have.
