My Study Abroad Trip! Berlin, Germany!
From a very young age, my parents instilled in me the importance of education. Despite having grown up around influences that suggested otherwise, education has always been most important to me and my future. Through the support of mentors, family, and teachers I am able to succeed in many areas of school. Though as a junior in high school and as a maturing young adult, it becomes difficult to decide what you want to pursue in your life.
However, thanks to my AMAZING German teacher, that decision was made slightly less difficult. Upon my first year of studying German at my school, I was exposed to a new language, a new culture, and a new way of connecting with people. I became drawn to foreign languages which would later lead me to study Spanish, French, and German simultaneously at my school. For the first time, I was driven to explore an aspect of eduation that I really loved.
Learning a language from school is great, however nothing compares to being completely immersed by a language in it's native country. Which is exactly why I applied to a high school Study Abroad program for Berlin, Germany and was accepted with a very large scholarship that covered majority of the tuition!
This summer, for 4 entire weeks, I will be embarking on a once in a lifetime opportunity that will change my life forever!
However, the scholarship awarded doesn't cover airfare (which is very expensive haha) or any other fees that incur for travelling abroad and living there. Which is why I'm asking for your support, so that my dreams of exploring the world and connecting with it's people comes true!
With your support, I'll be able to afford roundtrip airfare expenses (Getting me from LA to Chicago/New York for the group flight, and from Chicago/New York to Berlin) along with international travelling fees- such as getting all of my travel documents and necessities to take with me while I'm abroad! Through my program, I will be staying with a German host-family and I would like to be able to travel and explore Berlin with them without having to worry about being a financial burden or being limited of options to fully immerse myself in their culture due to financial issues.
I am so grateful to be able to have the opportunity to do something so unimaginable, and with your help I will be just one step closer to making this dream a reality!
