Ever since I stepped foot into a classroom of Special Needs Students I knew this was where my passion lies. I've been working hard in school but have been struggling as of late financially; Where I live it's very hard to get a job and I have some transportation issues. I live an hour from a major city! I signed up for study abroad at my school for New Zealand and I got accepted. Unfortunately, the cost is very high and unexpected. 

This experience would help impact my educational goals by having a once in a lifetime trip somewhere (Never been abroad before), a place where I can speak about it to all my students for many years to come. The fact that if you study hard in school and keep the right mindset you can experience many different wonderful things in life.
Any amount would help with the expenses, I'm not sure how I will fund my trip (Flight and Food Expense) because I exhausted my means. Even selling things that are sentimental to me! That goes to show how badly I would like to go to experience the Maori culture. If you could donate, any amount would be appreciated.
