My Travel Story

Hello everybody and welcome to my fundraising campaign, get ready to experience the most interesting and well written-ish description of a campaign written by a 15 year old you'll ever read, so lets get on to it shall we?

So here's the thing, my grandma was a devoted french teacher who loved France with all her heart, and of course, she impregnated me with all that love and passion from a very young age, I love their culture, I love their architecture, I love their soccer team, and most of all, I love their language. 

I've been trying to learn french for about 4 years now, I've tried everything, from classes to those podcasts you listen to while sleeping in hopes that you'll become fluent overnight (Newsflash: You don't.), but I still can't seem hold a simple conversation.

I'm also really passionate about traveling, so after thinking really hard about it I decided to combine both of my passions into one and BAM! 
The idea to study abroad came to life. Now I just needed the money for it.

Here in Colombia we don't get as many opportunities to travel or specially study abroad as some other people do. As high school students, we don't get the chance to get a job to make money for ourselves due to the growing insecurity of cities and lack of opportunities. People here are very close-minded, no one wants to see the world, no one wants to pursue a brighter future, no one really tries to follow their dreams, and certainly, no one wants to help a 15 year old girl follow her's. 

So i'm counting on all of you wonderful people to help me make my 6 months abroad a reality! Thank you so much for checking out my campaign!
