Hi everyone and thank you for taking your time to look at my fundraising campaign!
I have just transferred into a four year university (Yay!) from a two year community college. I'm studying Criminal Justice as my major and I'm adding Language/Language arts as my minor. Art and Language would have been my major but I quickly got discouraged because of all the negative things people say about Art majors. After thinking hard about it I decided to switch it to my minor because even if I didn't have a full Art/Language degree I could expand my knowledge but practicing my art, taking classes, and exploring the world. I have always been fascinated in Japanese culture. I started reading and watching Japanese manga and anime when I was about ten years old and since then my curiosity has risen immensely.
I believe going to Japan will help me understand the culture and appreciate it fully. I also believe that this trip will help me learn Japanese which I have been trying super hard to learn. Lastly, I think that this trip will positively change my life and my way of thinking while fulfilling one of my dreams.
Thank you so much for taking interest in this campaign and thank everyone so much in advance for those who help me make this trip a possibility.
