French Language Trip to Paris!
Recently, I have applied for and have recieved a scholarship to go abroad for four weeks to Paris through the amazing program CIEE.
This trip to France means so much to me, and I am willing to work hard and do anything to get there. I have recieved a scholarship to go there through the genrous program CIEE, and all I have to pay for is airfare. Even with working as much as I can, for a 15 year old focused on school, getting this much money in less than six months will not be the easiest.
My parents can hardly help me pay for airfare, which is around $1,000. Despite this, the airfare cost is nothing compared to the generous scholarship I recieved; not going on this trip would be a huge mistake and a missed oppurtunity to see the world for me.
Not only would this boost my growth as a French Language student, but I would significantly impact the Parisian community and make friendships and connections I have never had the chance to make before.
Applying to CIEE, I did not expect to get a scholarship of $6,450, let alone get into a trip to Paris, France; a place I have been dreaming to visit for as long as I can remember.
I have never traveled outside of the United States before,but there is no doubt that going on this trip would change my life and viewpoint of the world as I know it.
I would greatly appreciate any help at all with helping me experience learning a language, culture, and the life changing oppurtunity CIEE has given me.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this! Please share, because anything will help me greatly. I appreciate it!
