Hello Everyone!!! I am Maia Anika Punzalan, I was awarded Champion Scholar against thousands of scholars in the Kuala Lumpur Global Round of the World Scholars Cup just this June, and I want to ask for support to get into the next round, the Tournament of Champions, in Yale.
The Tournament of Champions is the final round of the World Scholars Cup where the top scholars of different countries compete in different fields (History, Science, Literature, Arts, Special Areas, collaborative writing & the highlight of the Tournament, debate). It will be held this November in Yale. I worked really hard to get this far, and I would definitely appreciate any help and funds so I can continue to compete. I want to help my parents as much as I can, with my mom having regular expensive medical treatments, my little brother still in school, and my dad taking his 2nd degree in college again, so I'd be incredibly thankful to those who can help me.
The funds I raise here will help defray my registration costs (which is around $1,500), airfare and stay in Yale for 1 week.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to represent my family, my school, my country, and myself to the world, so I hope I won't miss it. Please help me take this chance, any help would be appreciated and thanked.
