Hello! If you don't know me, and why exactly I'm on the desperate search for funding, allow me to explain. My name is Sarah Wight, and ever since I was little, I felt this constant urge to explore, inspect, and learn, even if this meant having my parents hold or wheel me around most places. I'd see a big tree to climb, a new fluffy dog, or a jolly elderly man in front of me, and my inner compass woud switch on and direct me towards it. I'd have to ascend up that trunk, touch that soft fur and greet that friendly stranger. This passion for travel, and experience never outgrew me, just the stroller. So as my life and education evolved, I realized that my fervor from a young age to travel, could actually become a reality. This led me to combine my cravings, and study two of the most important fields for society and the globe as a whole: Political Science and International Relations. With these two fields of study dominting my brain while at school, I finally felt as if my desires in life had a purpose. Once my junior year in college came much closer into the present, I realized that through study abroad I could pursue my dreams and adoration into travel itself. What could be better?! That's when I found the Diplomacy and International Relations Program in the gorgeous city of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Here, I could study classes on the EU and actually be there. See truly how other people live, compare that with both political and social life in America, and hopefully make better changes for all countries in the future. Please help me make my childhood dreams come true, and contribute in any way you can. Travel, even through study abroad is unfortunately extremely expensive, especially for those of us maintaining the ever so straining American middle class lifestyle.
