Hi there! I am a College Student who recently studied abroad in Valparaiso, Chile for 4.5 months. I met some incredible people and had some unforgettable experiences. When I had to leave it was heartbreaking, and leaving my host family behind was the worst part. They loved me like one of their own and I don't have words to describe what they mean to me. I especially connected with my sister Alejandra, and I want to surprise my family and her by being there for her wedding on November 15th, 2014. I know it would mean the world to them (and me!) if I could be there for that special time. That being said, after studying abroad I have a bit of debt that I need to pay off which means that I am about $500 short for a plane ticket. I not only want to return for the wedding, but also because this city is my second home, and there is still so much of it that I want to see and revisit, not to mention photograph (I LOVE photography). It would definitely be a dream come true to have the chance to go back.
