I am a South African student, wishing to go overseas. I have never been overseas, and I wish to be to Europe at least once in order to experience what it is like in a developed country, rich in European culture. Both my parents are self employed, and the Rand to Euro exchange rate is extremely drastic, making it extremely difficult for us to get the money for this.
I have been approved by our local Rotary Club, and have been allocated to ITALY!!! I am super excited - all that art history, the pizza and the pasta... not to mention the beautiful people....
I have always been fascinated by cultures and languages ever since I was little. However, my education is limited as we have little to no exposure to European cultures. I want to explore Italy with an open heart, and then try educate others on the culture of that beautiful country.
The expenses will cover my plane ticket, my school fees, and medical emergencies, food, housing, clothes and transportation around italy.
This program (Youth Rotary Exchange Program) was the best I could find, and this would be my last year, and now, my best chance of seeing at least a glimpse of Europe.
I need the funds as soon as possible, as the Student Exchange program needs it by August 2019.
I would love as much help as possible, as this is a dream I had ever since I was a little child, and maybe it'll come true before my childhood is over.
I am praying for your support, and look forward to, and am incredibly greatfull for your contributions.
