Hello Everyone, Let me tell you about myself. My name is Pranay Ramash and I am a high school student in British Columbia. I am 15 years old and my goal is to raise enough money to travel to France for an entire school year. Being an exceptional academic student, athlete and volunteer, I have never had any difficulty achieving my goals. Although the only area where I have not succeeded in is understanding cultures in other countries and being able to speak another language. I am currently a straight 'A' student at school and am on my schools cross country team. I didn't find school challenging enough and was given the opportunity to complete many of my grade 11 courses in my grade 10 year. Being given this opportunity and successfully completing all grade 11 sciences with over a 95% average grade, I have an extra year in high school to do something that will change my perspective of the world forever. I love volunteering in my community and I am currently part of the local Relay for Life committee which helps raise money for people with cancer. My Cause. Although this project will not be saving anyone's life, this will be a project that will ultimately shape the future of a young adult. I would love donators that understand the possibilities of experiencing other cultures and to speak another language fluently. Competition to being accepted into colleges and universities is getting much more difficult and universities are looking for students that stand out. Becoming more knowledgeable about culture in different and being able to speak another language fluently is my way of standing out. Please, if you have any money to spare, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you in advance to all my donators.
