Hello, everyone, my name is Edna Valcin I am a senior at Florida State University and currently part of the school of business. I have been selected this summer to participate in CIEE's study abroad program in Tokyo, Japan this summer. I am truly blessed to gain this opportunity and want to take full advantage of it. I always wanted to study abroad but never really looked into it because I knew it would be expensive. This year I decided to take a risk and follow my dreams of studying abroad. I did not expect to get accepted, but by the grace of God, I was chosen to participate in this program. I believe with me going abroad to study I will gain an experience that will help me in my future endeavors. As a business major, I want to be able to network and travel to different countries to gain a better understanding of international business. I will be exposed to a new culture, new society, and language which is very exciting. This will officially complete one of the goals that I had to accomplish before I graduate.This will help me gain an understanding of the culture and expand my knowledge. I am trying to raise funds before I departure because I was notified on such short notice. My flight has been taken cared by the scholarship I received so, the remaining $3,000 will help cover for food, the housing expense, the tuition of the University in Japan, and the confirmation fee of me attending. I will departure to go on this journey July 13th but I can continue to contribute towards the program until it is paid off. Any donation no matter how small or big will be highly appreciated. I am beyond hopeful for this amazing opportunity and I hope that if you are willing and able, you will make an investment in my future. Thank you so much in advance!
