My Travel Story

by: Infinity Hoag Start Date: Apr 12, 2018 - End Date: Jul 10, 2018
Hello Everyone,
            My name is Infinity Hoag, yes, you are correct, you do not need laser eye surgery, my name is Infinity, like the luxury car, almost like the cable service and well, if I had a penny for every time someone has said, “To infinity and beyond,” I wouldn’t even have to fundraise for this trip. All jokes aside, I am a twenty-year-old girl looking for some help fundraising my trip to Jinan, China. In this program, my main focus is on teaching English to children. Alright, before you roll your eyes and tell me to get a job and do it, let me list a few reasons why you should help me reach my goal.

 -I’m a full time university student.

-I work 40 hours a week.

-It’s been my lifelong dream to travel to Asia.

-I believe I can change people’s lives for the better.

-I’m a pretty cool person who thinks she has the humor of Eddie Murphy, but in reality, I’m probably as funny as a rock.

-As seen in the previous line, you can clearly see I’m honest!!

Okay, sorry I keep trying to be a stand-up comic, but let’s get back to business once again. The main reason why I can’t afford this trip even though I work a 9 to 5 for 40+ hours a week while being a full time student, is due to the fact that last year I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, that will eventually cause me to go blind. There’s nothing I can really do about it, but rather than counting down the days I want to have memories that I will always remember in my mind even if I don’t have my sight. While I do work so much, I spend 99% of my paycheck on hospital expenses and tuition, so I am not able to shell out any extra money on this trip.

I didn’t want to be that person that gives the sad story, but after saving as much as I could, I found myself walking down this route. So just as Landon did for Jamie, by you funding this trip, you are basically tattooing the butterfly on my shoulder.


So what do you think, will you be the Landon to my Jamie?
