Going on this trip with my college will be an amazing experience for me. We're going to New York for educational reasons and will be visiting loads of big landmarks and will be exploring New York! My mum is a single parent and has been since I was very little. She works very hard to keep a roof over our heads, give us food and clothes, but that also means that we don't have any extra money for things that we would like to have or do. We have never gone on a family holiday, as she cannot afford it. I don't want to miss out on this opportunity.
