Hello, my name is Aurora.
I am 12 years old, and I live in California. In June of this year, I have earned a special educational trip to Italy, Sicily, and Greece! I am one of only 10 junior high students, in all of California, selected as a reward for my exceptional academic achievement, maturity, and ability to work well with others. I will represent the United States as a student ambassador, sponsed by a presidental program, called People To People[peopletopeople.com]. In order to be able to go, I will need to raise enough money to cover the expenses of the trip(airline tickets, lodging, food, etc,). This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study the world and it's vibrant peoples. I will be spending 2 weeks in Italy, 2 weeks in Greece, 2 weeks in Sicily, and will be exposed to, not only the education and the history, but the local cultures as well. Although I am still young, I have grand aspirations of becoming a fashion designer. I am heavily involved in music. I play clarinet in my school band, and I also enjoy playing piano. Art is one of my biggest passions. I recently won an art contest to design a logo for our home town's 90th anniversary. I am over joyed to have been given the chance to go on this life changing experience. I promise that any and all donations recieved, will contribute to making me a better person, with a much brighter future. Any extra money raised will be redonated to assist other student ambassadors in need. I greatly thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time, understanding, generousity and kindness!!!!!!!!!!!!
