I just want to thank you all so much for visiting this page. My first semester at American University has truly been an experience of a lifetime. I've done and seen so much towards my education, and I want to do everything possible to live up to everyone's expectations. A few months ago, I was accepted as one of only 11 students to be able to attend a research conference trip to Costa Rica. This will take place during spring break of 2016, where I would be studying and presenting my research in yoga therapy and mind-body medicine. This opportunity would allow me to even showcase my research to the top experts of mind-body medicine in the entire world!
And with such a great opportunity, also comes such great costs. The total cost of this trip is $1,760 which would include the travel, food, housing, and research fees for this project. After months of sacrificing and planning, I was barely able to raise the $500 to pay the deposit and secure my spot. And I'm afraid I can't complete the rest without your help. Any possible donation, no matter how small, will go directly to this fund to cover the rest of the expenses. I will try my best to keep everyone updated on my progress and research breakthroughs as I go along this journey. I will also write a personal letter of endearment to all who contribute anything during these difficult times.
No matter what, I thank you all again for taking the time to read this page, and if you need to contact me please don't hesitate to email me at [email protected]
