Hello!

Welcome to my Fund My Travel campaign! I am a 31 year old student who has returned to college to finish my BA. I'm studying Business and Tourism in the Individualized Study major. I'm also working part time on campus as an office assistant in the Study Abroad Office at my University. 
 My goal is to be able to find a way to fund a study abroad trip overseas and earn credits towards my degree. Besides just doing course work an international trip would benefit me because, not only does it look good on my resume, but studying different cultures and traveling to different countries ties into what I’m studying as well. For any full time career I would like to have after graduating the Tourism industry a big part of why I chose this career path because of all the opportunities to be able to see the world. 
At the moment for an overseas trip I'm being flexible because it basically boils down to how much money I can raise. I've been looking at different locations in Europe as well as Japan, and Australia. I would love to do an internship at some point, but for now since I need to be able to afford the trip out of pocket I'm looking at a Winter 2019 program because those trips are shorter and cheaper.
Besides saving pennies I thought I would start a crowdfunding page to see if I could raise anything. Thank you for reading my profile and I hope you can help me raise a few extra bucks, whether it be $2 or $2,222 please donate so I can be able to take the trip of a lifetime.
