My Travel Story

by: Delta Higdon Start Date: Dec 3, 2017 - End Date: Jan 14, 2018

The time has finally come where it is my last year in college to complete my Bachelors of Public Health and I am very thankful that it is with New Mexico State University. I am one semester away from graduating and have the opportunity to travel to New Zealand for two weeks (December 27 - January 12th) through a study abroad program. The focus of this program will be to explore the agricultural animals in the area and to visit some sheep, beef, and dairy farms. This course will fulfill my Viewing the Wider World degree requirements which is a part of the NMSU academic criteria. Not only is this a chance for me to travel and explore another country but a chance for me to learn and study animals that build on my interests. As some of you know, my family and I raise animals (horses, cows, sheep, goats, and pigs) which led me to choosing this course.

New Zealand has a lot to offer with this opportunity through NMSU, especially being that it has the largest farming and agriculture industry. With that being said, I am very eager and excited. I am asking for any donations of any amount that your heart can give. It will be used towards my travel/meals/expenses, I’d GREATLY appreciate it and thank you for your consideration.
