Hi i am Kerrilyn duke i am a jr at Pinellas virtual high in sunny Florida, i along with 40 other students from around my area have been nominated by a teacher or adult figure to travel to Europe this summer. Its a 19 day travel extravaganza and a once in a lifetime learning experiences that will enrich the lives of those who travel.
The countries we will be traveling to this summer are France the city of love, Switzerland home of the alp's, Austria apple strudels anyone? and last but not least Italy where we will travel under the city watch how gladiators fought to there deaths and enrich in different culture experiences. I personally believe it is more rewarding to raise the money myself rather than have my family pay for it. I'm most excited about experiencing first-hand the places I've read about in textbooks such as the Eiffel Tower,the roman Colosseum. Not only will I be able to visit these historic sites, I'll also be able to participate in fun cultural experiences such as, hiking in the Swiss Alps, and learning how to make authentic apple strudel! I will also have the opportunity to stay with a Swiss family and participate in a service project.It's always been a dream of mine to travel internationally and experience other cultures, foods, people, and countries outside of America. Your donation would help make this dream come true. Even a $5 or $10 donation would help me reach my fundraising goal. If I reach a 100% of my goal I will volunteer a minimum of 15 hours. Thank you so much for any amount you contribute to my trip and for supporting me in pursuing this amazing opportunity!
