Hi everyone! I am a broke film student who is looking to study abroad this summer in Rome to learn about Italian filmmaking and to broaden my horizons. I am an excellent student with a 3.9 GPA and I am working extra hours at my job but it isn't possible to fund this experience on my own. My mother has said that not studying abroad during college was her biggest regret and I would love it if I could experience studying abroad for both of us. I believe this trip will help me in my career because it will allow me to take beautiful video and it will inspire me in my screenwriting. Through this study abroad program I will meet many distinguished people in my field such as Italian directors, screenwriters, and actors. In the future I hope to make films that reflect the diversity in the real world and I want my work to highlight women in film, especially behind the camera. Any donation will help me immensely and I will hugely appreciate it. Thank you so much!
