Hello my name is Kade, I have been selected to participate in an exciting and life changing learning opportunity. I have the opportunity to travel to Italy, Sicily, Vatican City, and Greece as a Student Ambassador for my community. This experience will teach me cultures of other nations and also show them parts of my culture. I will visit multiple schools and historic sites along with staying with families. This will make me a much better citizen for my community and also teach me the importance of realizing that I am a citizen of the world not just the United States. The funds will raised will cover the costs of the program, which is $6,499. International fuel surcharge of $526, $140 for my passport, and the remainder would cover travel expenses, incidental expenses, and also trip insurance. My parents will do all they can to help with the cost and support my learning but they work very hard just to make ends meet. I also pledge that any funds I would have left will be donated to an educational charity in my area.
I will be traveling with the People to People Program, this will change my views of the world drastically. This group will be taking thirty students like myself, I hope to learn many new things that I could not learn here in the States and the classroom. I will have hands-on experience that others could not. We will also be doing many volunteer projects to help the communities we will be visiting. Past projects have included psunami cleanup and help after natural disasters. I live in a small town city in Southern Ohio, and I am very eager to learn more about the world everyday. I thank you for your time and consideration on helping me reach my goal so I can take the educational trip of a life time.
