I have always dreamed of traveling the world. In the past few years I have grown more interested in Spanish culture as I continue to take Spanish classes in school. After being introduced to the study abroad program recently I have decided this is something I need to experience. My plan is to study abroad in Spain for part of my senior year of high school. This total immersion program will allow me to experience the Spanish culture first hand and provide me the opportunity to take my language lessons to a whole new level. I'm asking for your help to get me there. Any assistance you can provide would mean so much to me, even $5 will go a long way to help me to realize this dream in fall of 2018. The program I am looking at will provide me room and board with a host family in Spain where I will live from August through November next year. I will attend a local high school and have an opportunity to experience life in Madrid. Thank you so much for your consideration.
