My name is Khai and I am an exchanged student from Viet Nam and I am currently studying in grade 10, Lowell Senior High School in Michigan in the US. I am invited to National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC ) on Pre College summer program. I have written this to ask for financial support from everyone possible for my summer program. But first, I want all of you, whom want to understand more about this fundraising, know a little of me and my surprising journey to the America.
Well, I am turning 17 this year and I am an optimistic person, but sometimes get pessimistic really easy because I have realized life have always been so different for any individual. Managing to be here in the US is still a surprise to me. I know that studying abroad is a chance that anybody want to receive and it is not an easy-peasy thing that everyone can afford, or even manage to pass the visa interview. Coming from a medium family, I really don’ t think of one day that I am able to be here. Yes, it is definitely difficult for my parent to pay the study cost, but after being advised, supported and encouraged by my relatives, my parent decided to make this move in hope for my better, brighter future. I would say this is a risky step that would change my entire life. Even after solving the price of my study, I failed visa interview. I felt really disappointed at that moment but then turn back to my conscious stage really soon to fight for another chance. Maybe, God has blessed me a second chance, and I seized that as my last chance in my life. And I finally understand that: if you see a chance, you need to take it by all of your efforts because it may be the only time in your life. So, this time I really need everyone’ s gentle to help me catch this opportunity.
I am invited to National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC ) on Pre College summer program that is going to be hosted by top Universities in the US. This prestigious program only choose high school student with outstanding- academic accomplishment all around the world. It is definitely an honor to me and a good chance for me to persuade my dream.
This is my first year in America as a sophomore. Things were tough at first, since then I have tried my best catching up with everything, which resulted me with GPA of 3.8 for first trimester :). After being invited to this Conference, I looked for information about this program and decided to take part in “Mastering Leadership” program. I would have the probability to acquire knowledge which I will gain skills in effective communication, public speaking and resolving problem.
I really wish for this chance to experience the briefings with others who are interested and leaders in this field. After recognizing things are different in many ways for each person, I want to put my effort in the future to help, or even by myself to build a community network, where anyone can find passion when they are lost, be inspired when they hesitate and more.
The total cost, which include course materials, housing, on- campus meal, social events, transportation, travel to and from the program and the amount for other incidental expenses, is 3000 US dollars. Because this is a rare opportunity to me, my parent really want to help, they can support me 300 US dollars as their best, but the cost still need to be covered an additional of $2700.
Every financial support will be really appreciated because it can make a huge different for me fighting for this privilege.To learn more about National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) and the program I will participate, everyone please pay a visit at its website www.nslcleaders.org.
I am truthfully grateful for every assistance, gentle from anyone and hope the best for everyone. I think God may still bless us with chance that can only be seized by the love and share of everyone for each other.
