Hello to whomever is reading this,
I am now just a 14 year old with a dream and this trip helps me pursue that dream so I have created this campaign to raise funds of about 1800 Dollars for a trip to Melbourne, but this isn't any ordinary trip you see. I am going for an academic Olympiad called World Scholars Cup. In this we are given 6 subjects to study and then we are tested on them through debating, creative writing and a massive test called the challenge (it really is a challenge).
See http://www.scholarscup.org/ for more details.
It would be awesome if you could donate even $1 because it will still bring me closer to my goal. The cost for travel, visas, and entry ticket is estimated at $1850.00 I would like to appeal to you as business owners and individuals for sponsorship.
Last year i was was fortunate that the Global round took part in my country South Africa and form there I qualified to go to the Tournament of Champions held at Yale University.
Having worked hard individually and with my team, we did exceptionally well. Especially considering I was 13 at the time and took part in the senior division.
My in January 2017, I told my parents that I want to go to Yale University- 11 months later with some luck, great support from those who know me and those who don’t, and a whole lot of hard work; I had found a way to be walking the halls of Yale.
My dream one day, in the not to distant future is to actually attend Yale University as a student. Your sponsorship will take me one step closer.
Thanking you in anticipation.
