What is this project about?
At fifteen years old, I'm developing as a independant young adult and learning what it personally means for me to be happy. For me, happiness is freedom, photography, seeing new places and meeting people you've never met before, it's the weight lifted from my shoulders when I step out into the airport and hearing people speak a language I cannot understand. For me, happiness is living deliberately and to learn as I go.
A while back, my older brother passed away. He was my biggest hero in life and one day he was stolen out of it. My family is still dealing with the repurcussions, including a big amount of debt and depression. Two days ago, my uncle passed. Now my family has been carrying the burden of more sadness and more finances to cover for his funeral.
Last month, I had my backs packed and was ready to walk out of the door while my folks were at work, and never come back. Thankfully, though, I didn't take that step. All I wanted out of it was to get away from where I was and go travel with not a care in the world, and take every risk out there known to man. Today I have the oppurtunity to do that, but there's a catch: I have to keep my grades high and pay for my own ticket/s. Normally, I'd ask my family to donate but seeing as they are neck-deep in bills, bills, and finances, the probability that they would be donating is very low.
So how will this work?
My older sister, who's work requires her to travel for long and/or short periods of time, has offered to take me on her next trip: Korea! Her friend from Ireland, who has been backpacking for a while, will be teaming up with us over there and will be serving as my tour guide for the two weeks that I will be gone.
All with the help of you guys! By donating even just .50, you can help me reach my goal. I've saved up somewhere around $250-200, but that's with the help of my every-other-weekly allowances and I'm afraid that with those payments I won't be able to provide the right amount on time. If you could help me out and donate even a dollar, and/or spread to word on your social media sites (seeing as I have none), It would be greatly appreciated. Please help me accomplish my goal...
SOUTH KOREA 2014!
