As a junior in high school, I think that it would be great for my future if I were to travel to another country and become a foreign exchange student for my senior year of high school, in preparation for the many exciting things that await me in years to come. This trip would be monumentally beneficial to my education, and my future. In embarking on this international journey, I hope to gather as much knowledge in study as possible. By becomming a foreign exchange student, I hope to aquire wisdom about a wider variety of cultures, and experience life on the other side of the world. I will be attending school, as well as volenteering as much as possible, in order to assist local businesses, and further my cultural education. Since I was young, I have always been passionate about Spain, and the culture associated with it. The dancing, music, art, fashion, and even the particular spanish dialect are so unique to the beaitiful country that is Spain. To have the opportunity to join my host family in Madrid for just one school year would be a life-changing excursion, which I would be honored to have the opportunity to participate in. Without external help, my desired trip would be much too expensive for my family to afford to send me on. As well as many other side jobs, I hope that this fundraiser will help me to achieve my dream of international travel, and broaden my cultural understanding.
