About This Project
This summer I am hoping to go to France and Spain for a class field trip. I will get to spend the time to learn new culture, style,taste new food, and much more. This will be a very exciting trip to go on and I will get to see some of the famouse sights such as the Cattacombs, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dome, and many more.
Hi my name is Taylor, ever since I was a little girl I dreamed about going to France and Spain. All my mom said I ever talked about was visiting Paris and seeing the Eiffel Tower. When I was little I collected alot of things like mini Eiffel Towers and pictures of paris and small delis.
I have such a love for Paris I decided to take French. I have currently studied French for two years now and proceeding my education as a Freshman in high school. During my year in 8th grade I made a friend in France. We would write each other letters and send small gifts like candy or pictures of what our towns looked like. This trip would give me a great chance to meet her in person.
This is my chance for my dream to finally come true. Every four years the Fort Atkinson High School goes on an 11 day trip to France and Spain. I just happen to land on the right year. When I got into the middle school I found out that the high school does a France and Spain trip. I have prayed to go on this trip for 4 years now. I am super excited to be going on this trip. I have been trying to save all of my money for this trip.
I love spending time with my family such as going on camping trips, bike rides, holidays, and much more. Some of my favorite things to do are go swimming, horse back riding, biking, reading, and archery. My mom and I are currently preparing for the 5k Color Me Rad Race.
In school I try my hardest to get good grades and be above 3.0 grade point average. I have acomplished this every year and usually have 3.2 grade point average. I am in Volleyball, F.B.L.A, Tennis Club, and Archery Club. I have also donated to the Jefferson Humane Society many times. I have been a Girl Scout for 10 years and we have done a mini grant for the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry which consisted of growing a garden and then donating the vegetables to the food pantry.
My mom really wants me to go on this trip, we have talked about it for years, but there is just not enough money to pay for it. My mom is a single parent that has three kids and works very hard to support us. I have found a couple of small jobs to earn money for the trip. So far I have saved $400.00 and the amount is slowly raising.
This trip will expand my learning and knowledge about the French and Spain Culture. I hope to make many new friends along the way and have a bunch of fun. The cost of this trip is 7,000 dollars. Please help me make my dream come true.
