My Travel Story

by: Hayley Daughma Start Date: Nov 6, 2017 - End Date: May 5, 2018
After years of hoping and wishing, I’m finally going to live out my dream of going to South Korea! What’s better is that I am going there to intern as part of my journalism major. But, I can’t do this without some help, as there are fees to pay once I am officially placed at my internship, airfare, and maybe even bills I need to resolve here at home so that I can focus on work and not on my financial constraints back home.

I will be interning in South Korea as part of the Asia Internship Program. I chose South Korea as I have been interested in the country and its culture for nearly a decade. I have been teaching myself the language for just about as long and consider myself to have at least an intermediate fluency. In addition to honing my journalism skills, I hope to utilize and improve my Korean while abroad so that I may become closer to fluency and much more well-rounded.

This opportunity will be life-changing for me. Going to the other end of the planet to do my internship sounds crazy but will give me a competitive edge in the journalism industry post-graduation. There is a chance of gaining employment at my internship site as well, which would be incredible! 

I am looking to raise at least $3500 through this campaign; the rest I will either work hard to save or try to get financial aid to cover. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and it would be incredible if you all could help in any way you can.

  • Minor Alterations

    Hey everyone, I've made a few changes to my campaign. I've lowered the overall goal to the program cost alone, and my minimum goal from $5000 to $3500. I have also added a few donor rewards as an incentive for donating!

    Please continue to share the link to my campaign, even if you can't donate monetarily! Spreading the word would help me immensely!
  • First Donation!

    Thanks so much to my friend Liz for her donation! It means so much to me ☺️ Please, share this fundraiser on your social platforms so that the word can get out and I have a greater chance of meeting my goal! Thanks for your support thus far!
