My Travel Story

by: Alyssa Harries Start Date: Apr 12, 2018 - End Date: Apr 11, 2019
My name is Alyssa Harries, I am 16 years old, and I Junior at Willits High School. I have never had the chance to travel because I have not been able to fund a trip. My art teacher Ms.Carolyn Bakewell presented a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy & Greece. This trip is experiential as much as it is educational. While learning about new cultures and seeing famous landmarks of different parts of the world, I will also be on my first trip outside the United States. Ms.Bakewell will be leading this trip only a few days after my high school graduation. On this journey, my classmates and I will go to places like the Duomo, Pompeii, the Trevi Fountain and numerous art museums. I, myself, have always been interested in different cultures, my favorite subject/hobby is Art this trip combines these two together. As I am aware that the cost of this trip is a large sum I would like you to think of the advances I will gather by learning about cultures hands-on. The original cost of this trip is $4,424 but this does not cover the cost of daily lunches while on the trip, the cost of my passport, any baggage fees or any money for memorabilia or souvenirs. The group of classmates and Ms.Bakewell will be doing a numerous of other fundraisers but any donation is greatly appreciated and needed. Thank you for any consideration.
