My Travel Story

It would mean the utmost to me if I were able to get to my goal and be able to study abroad! I live in a village (small town) where our high school only has about 200 students. In this small town of ours, we don't have a study abroad program. I would take up a job and try to get the money myself but since it's such a small town, finding a job is extremely hard. I'll keep looking for a job but at this point, this is my only hope! I'm trying to get scholarships too but it's hard to find any where you don't have to compete for it. I'll still try those but I really want to study abroad because I'm extremely smart. I get can get straight a's without moving a muscle. The thing is, I'm so bored by school that I can't find motivation to get those straight A's. I currently have a 3.8 gpa but like I said, that's without me even trying. I feel that if I were to study abroad and study something that I wanted to learn then I could find motivation and put my brain to work! It would also be amazing because I would be one of only two students who have ever studied abroad at my school. I would make my entire community proud and I'd love to find a way to start my own study abroad program if things go well. Thank you in advanced and I'm looking forward to seeing how much money we can raise!
