My Travel Story

by: Ashley Kelly Start Date: Oct 7, 2016 - End Date: Apr 6, 2017
My name is Ashley and I am currently in college in Colorado. Previously I was in Iowa and planned to go to Japan with my friends for a semester. 

I had to abandon that dream when my Gram got sick. I now live with her and take care of her, and am going to a college with a lackluster study abroad system. I work part time, go to school full time and take care of a severly handicapped 71 year old woman full time as well. This summer is my only real opportunity to go to Japan, there's help for Gram for my month abroad and all of my friends from Iowa will be there too. 

So, I need a little help. I can't take on more hours due to caretaking, so it is super hard for me to raise the money myself. This is my dream, and I would appreciate any help I could get. Thank you.
