I am a first generation college student. Not only am I the first person in my family to go to college I am also the first person in my family to study abroad. I'm a young Latino man looking for help to pay for my study abroad tuition I will be going to Peru and Ecuador for 3 months and learning about Amazon forest preservation, social justice, and cultural awareness. My financial aid packet will only cover a fraction of the cost. I will be traveling February 2018. If I can get any help I will be tremendously grateful for the support that will get me closer to my dream of becoming an environmental science major. I know this opportunity will change my life and my families life forever. It will also show my brothers and sister that anything is possible even if we come from a poor background.
