My Travel Story

by: Gabriel Reynolds Start Date: Aug 7, 2016 - End Date: Dec 6, 2016
Hey everyone!
My name is Gabriel Reynolds and I am a 15 year old student with arthritis living in Australia. 
During September 2017 my high school is giving students an oppurtunity to travel abroad to the United States where they will visit the US Space & Rocket Center for a week. During the trip students will engage in many activities related to outer space travel and exploration whilst learning about the technology enabling it. I've always had a keen interest in astrophysics and space engineering so to be able to go on this trip would be a dream come true for me - not only would it broaden my horizons and deepen my understanding of the world, it would also educate me about a potential career in the field.
But, here's the kicker - neither I or my family can afford it. My parents simply don't have the money to fund the trip and due to the current job market in Australia I am finding it near impossible to find any casual work (Trust me - I've been looking for over 4 months now). The first payment for the trip is due at the end of this month, and I'm at my wits end of how to get the money. 
I have been waiting for an oppurtunity like this for years, and now that one has finally arisen I can't even take it. Please help me out, any help would be much appreciated!
