**UPDATE** I really need your help, as you can read below I have been selected to participate as a Volunteer but I really need your help. I worked very hard to get the grades to be accepted to college and to get the scholarships needed to attend school. My mom is a single hard working mom who works very hard but is not able to pay for this learning experience. I am getting a 3.5 GPA and I work VERY HARD to keep this GPA. Even if you are able to donate $10 it will add up! please help me, I assure you that I will remember each and every one of you. Once I have completed my schooling I too will be able to help out other young and determined kids with fulfilling their dreams. All I ask is that you believe in me; just a little bit and I will be there for others as well. **
I have been accepted to participate in the EDventure program this summer(2016) for three weeks in one of four countries as a volunteer. The country I have chosen is Costa Rica; here they provide the opportunity to: work hands on with sea turtles, assist in reforestation, learn the language and engage with the culture, teaching local school children about the knowledge I gained working with the sea turtles, explore the country, and apply and broaden my leadership skills.

Flight Ticket Estimate : $200
Trip Cost: $3500
