Once In A Lifetime Service Project
My name is Jasmine Breanne Windley. I am a graduating senior, majoring in biology at Spelman College. While at Spelman I have had the opportunity to continue my family’s legacy of indebted service to the country, representing as one of three Army ROTC Scholarship cadets on campus. Upon Graduation, I will commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army where I will start my career as a Medical Service Officer. I have been able to prepare for such a lifestyle through enduring a rigorous biology curriculum balancing ROTC, collegiate cheerleading, and volunteer at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. With so much on my plate my summers have been filled with summer trainings and athletic camps so I can commission upon graduation
It is my goal to be able to travel abroad before I graduate in order for me to be able to gain valuable insight on cultural perspectives. Traveling abroad will help me make the best impact possible as a leader leveraging my ability to be culturally competent. In order to accomplish this goal, I applied to the Liberia Fellowship Program offered at Morehouse College, that gives students the opportunity to travel abroad to Liberia during the Winter Break (December 9-18). Shortly after I applied, I was accepted into the program! This trip will allow me to work closely with Planting A Seed International, conducting community service at the local orphanage and the local elementary and high school. It will also give me the opportunity to immerse in the history, the culture, the beautiful people, and most importantly the food!
I am humbly seeking sponsorship from family and friends to pay the $5000 fee. This fee will include the program fee, airfare, lodging, and food. Please, any heartfelt monetary and moral support toward reaching this goal will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. This is an opportunity of a lifetime and your investment will not only impact me but it will allow me to impact the children of Liberia through community service. Thank you so much.
