I am currently a high school senior living in Lake Elsinore, CA. I've only been as far as Mexico and would love to experience something new. As a leader I feel it is necessary to expose myself to different cultures and ideas and I believe this trip will allow me to do so. I've worked very hard throughout highschool, maintaining a 4.14 cumulative GPA, being in student government for 4 years, taking a total of 7 AP classes, and many other extracurriular activities. I really would like an opportunity to take my leadership further through one of their international leadership programs. I am not only a leader but I work to help others become leaders as well. I am currently on the California Association of Student Leaders State Board which allows me to travel around California presenting at leadership conferences to help other student leaders improve their leadership skills. I believe leadership is one of the most important qualities one must have to be successful and I believe everyone should have the opportunity to become a great leader! I hope to return from this trip an even stronger leader with an even stronger passion to make a difference through leadership.
With college coming up next year I really have no money to spare on this trip but I am determined to raise the funds! Please help me, and thank you so much in advance!
