My name is Isabel Brown and I am a autisic 10year old student at Gateway Elementary School. I am writing to you about an extremely special opportunity for me. I have been selected to become a People to People Student Ambassador to England and France. Next summer, I will join a delegation of students my age on a 14 day educational program that will take us to England and France. I was chosen because of my academics and my abilities to retain information that I have learned.
Our curriculum will teach us about the history, culture and people of the regions. After all, there is no better way to learn about cultures than to experience it firsthand. We will be led by experienced teachers and engage in a wide variety of cultural encounters and adventures. We will be able to see the Tower of London and enjoy a medieval banquet lunch with Henry VIII. We will also see Stonehenge and Normandy Beach, the location of the D-Day invasion. We will also see the Eiffel Tower and The Louvre in Paris! Needless to say, I am incredibly excited. If you would like more information on the program please feel free to visit www.peopletopeople.com. You can also contact my mom at 429 Depot Street, Conneaut Ohio 44030 or 440-536-1679.
I am paying my way and raising money for my trip. The total trip is $6000.00 We have been having a Yankee Candle fundraiser, making friendship bracelets, candy bars sales and making plastic canvas plaques. Would you be willing to help sponsor my trip? I would be enormously grateful for your support.
Thank you for supporting me in my goal to explore and understand another country and their culture.
