My Travel Story

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury

Hello and thank you for looking into my campaign!

My name is Espio and I am 24 year old transgender male looking to make a difference in the world! In Jan, I'm flying into Prague to start my one month TEFL certification program. After I complete the program, I will get a job in Prague and start teaching students. My plan is to stay in Prague for about 6-8 months and then find another job in Europe at another school. This experience in a new culture will give me a chance to grow both personally and professionally. My biggest passion is to travel and help make a difference in the world.

Throughout the years I have worked all over the country at different work and travel jobs. I have met so many different people and experienced all sorts of cultures. In the summer, I work at Girl Scout camps. I want to bring all of my amazing experiences with me and teach new things to people. 

Although I have been saving for this amazing oppurtunity (working 2 jobs and selling belongings), I still need some help getting there. Currently I have already paid the tuition for the course of the school ($1400), I still need some money for airfare, visa, monthly expenses, utilites, etc. 
Here's a rundown of some fees that the school sent me:
Visa Fee: $473
Prague Expats Agency Fees: $225
Trade License: $45
Bank Letter Translation: $31
12 Months Health Insurance: $325
Monthly Metro Pass: $30
These are just the fees that the school sent me, not counting housing (which typically runs about $300-$450 a month not including utilities), food, airfare, and other activites. 

I chose Prague specifically because it is very LGBT friendly. I have already made connections with other trans people on social media who live there and I am super excited to meet them! 

Thank you so much for looking into my campaign, everyone hates asking for help and I am no exception from that. 

Thank You!
