My name is Averi and I have been accepted to study abroad at the University of Melbourne in Australia! In the city of Melbourne, I will be studying Architecture which has been my passion ever since I was a little girl. When I was younger, I can remember being so excited watching the Crocodile Hunter in the Outback and Finding Nemo exploring the Great Barrier Reefs; now its my turn to embark on an adventure of my own!
I have worked exceptionally hard academically, financially, and spiritually to finally make it to this point and I am extremely fortunate to have been able to achieve this amazing opportunity. I still can't believe its really happening! I cannot wait to explore the epic wonders that will await me in such a vibrant and lively city.
On May 15th, I will be celebrating my 21st birthday! More than anything, I would appreciate your donation toward this travel fund as the perfect gift so that I can truly enjoy my experience abroad. Please help make my dreams a reality and support my travel fund today! Every gift, big or small, will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and God bless you :)
Cheers! -Averi Andrea Thomas
