Thank you for taking the time to read about my fundraiser here. My name is Elizabeth and I'm fundraising to pay my tuition for a 3-year Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and English at the University of Ottawa, Canada. The tuition is roughly $3,300, and this is not including the cost of the textbooks I will be needing. It's important to me that I study English and History in university so that I can learn from the past and better the future. I want to travel to foreign-language countries and teach English and History in schools to children, and work my way up to teaching adults in communities where such opportunities have not been offered before. I am looking at third-world countries and areas of the globe that severly need educators and passionate people who want to help them grow and thrive as a people. English to me is not simply reading old books and debating about viewpoints and morals. Through English and History I am able to not only pass on information about how the world once was, and what it could be, but I can pass on the love of reading and how important it is to life. Literautre of all sorts teaches us about our world, each other, and ourselves. I am going to give back to a world that has been kind to me; give back to those who need it most. All I need to do is get through a university degree first. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about my life plans or this fundraiser, please don't hesitate to contact me. My email is as follows; [email protected] I dream of touching the corners of our earth, and contributing to communities along the way. My first semester begins September 1st, 2015! Wish me luck!
