To whom it may concern, my name is Hogan Tomkunas and I need your help. This upcoming summer I plan to study abroad for about a month in either Sydney, Australia or Otago, New Zealand. I believe that studying abroad will be beneficial to not only my education but to myself as an American. I have never traveled out of the country but I have always wanted to. Now that I am in college it is a perfect time to travel across the globe and get an education and experience other cultures. I am extremely determined to accomplish my goal of studying abroad and making an impact on unfamilair soil.
