My Travel Story

Hi everyone!
I'm planning on studying abroad in Australia for Winter Intersession 2019. I'm trying to pay everything myself so I don't have to burden my parents with yet another expense, especially since the payments would be made closer to the holiday season and since I was not an early bird candidate. Parents sacrifice so much for their children, so I would like to take financial charge of making one of my dreams come true.
It's always been a dream of mine to travel the world, one city/country at a time.There are so many beautiful cultures and types of people and nature out there that I think we should all get the chance to know. In a world that seems to be so narrow-minded, I hope to break out of it and experience everything the world has to offer with an open mind and open arms. 
This course is a GE (General ed) course,Criminal Justice 385, which gives me credit towards my bachelor's degree, and it's also a bucketlist destination. I want to take this opportunity to be able to learn how the United States differs from Australia in a variety of different aspects. I feel like new environments help us put ourselves and our lives in perspectives, allowing us to appreciate what we have even more.
This course lines up so well with my academic and personal goals, which is why I'm trying so hard to collect the funds for it. I'm using all my financial aid and savings for the program course itself, which still leaves me the expense of airfare,the largest expense of this trip aside from the program itself, tourist visa and passport, and winter intersession fees. Thank you so much in advance and I hope you all have an amazing day.
