My Travel Story

Hi all! I am currently getting my degree in Communication Sciences and Speech Disorders from the University of Utah. I am planning to graduate December 2018- finally! After graduating, I will be applying to graduate schools for the 2019-2020 school year.

Right now, I am taking every opportunity to volunteer and do research to better my graduate school applications. Based on my academic and personal interests, I applied for a two-week summer program abroad in Belize. This opportunity will give me hands-on learning opportunities that pertain to my degree and future career and better my chances of being admitted to graduate school. I am excited to delve into my career and believe that this opportunity will give me a glimpse into my future.

I am SO lucky to have been accepted into this summer program in Belize. While there, I will provide essential services such as speech & language screenings, evaluations and intervention to local children in their schools, in their homes, and in a clinical setting. I will also take part in a communications learning camp for children with special needs designed around skill based stations.
 
I am SO excited for this hands-on experience, but am kind of freaking out about how much it costs. I am looking to raise $5000 for this cause. I ask you to please support me so that I can provide speech therapy to children in Belize. Your generous donation will go towards travel expenses, training, and many hours working alongside ASHA certified SLPs. Even the smallest amount will help me reach my goal.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thank you, in advance!
