I am trying to expand my knowledge and experience and leadership in and of the world with this trip. I will be going to many different European countries on this trip. Raising the money is hard because both of my parents are disabled and have medical expenses to cover for themselves. I have currently half of the $7,000 saved up for the trip, but sadly I am running out of fundraising options.
Who I Am
My name is Anna and I am a sophmore at my high school. Last January, my mother was in a car accident which put her in the icu for a month and led to putting her into a nursing home for 6 months. My father was born with Cerebral Palsy, which is a seizure condition. My mother, as well as now being permenantly handicapped, is 300 ponds overweight. Though they both want to, my parents cannot travel due to their physical states. My mother does not work. I try my best to help my parents, while also doing what I love and keeping up my grades in school. I am on the debate team, academic team, mock trial team(which I started at my school), tennis, and yearbook club. I play the acoustic guitar and dance(Jazz, Ballet, and Lyrical). I love to read, especially historical fiction books. I would love to travel to the places that I have read about, like France and London( A Tale of Two Cities) and Amsterdam(The Fault in Our Stars). On this trip I will be going to both of these places, as well as to cities in Austria, Belgium, and Switzerland.
