My Travel Story

by: Kyra Jean Cipolla Start Date: May 26, 2018 - End Date: Aug 23, 2018
Dear Loved Ones, Family & Friends, 

I am an Environmental Studies & Sustainability major with a passion to study and save marine ecosystems. I have plans to go to graduate school and study tropical coral reef ecosystems. As anyone who is currently in grad school knows, it is highly competitive. To broaden my skills, I seek to study abroad in the SFS Marine Resource Studies Program located on the Turks & Caicos Islands. This program consists of learning about marine ecology, conservation, environmental impact assessments, Marine Protected Areas and management strategies by conducting quantitative and qualitative studies and creating an independent research project. I have been accepted and have been working and applying for scholarships and loans to raise funds to pay for the program and flight costs. However, to ensure that I will have sufficient funds to pay for all the costs, I have this Fund My Travel page! This is a study abroad experience like no other, and it’s an investment in my future. With your help, I'll get the push I need to learn how to save ocean environments! I greatly appreciate any financial help and thank you all in advance!
