My name is Charlie Clark and I am currently a rising junior in high school. I have dreamed of travel my whole life, and although I have moved 9 times I have only lived on the East Coast of the US. I am currently trying to raise money for a study abroad opportunity in South Korea that costs ~$11,000. I am a teenager who has always been mature for my age and looked beyond what most people see. I am able to appreciate new cultures and experiences more than others my age since I can easily view more than what I am used to. Studying abroad would be an incredibly beneficial experience for me as I am invested in advancing my Korean skills and immersing myself into a considerably different culture from my own. While Korean music has captured my heart, I love the entire culture of South Korea. It is a place I can already feel may act as a second home since I have never quite fit in amongst other Americans. I am thrilled at even the possibility of being able to make this dream a reality and would take any support I can get. Thank you!
