Hi I’m Erin. I would love to have your support to help me fulfil this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study in America for one year. I would love to totally immerse myself in America's culture and meet new and exciting people while discovering the world around me. I would love to be able to educate my community and open their minds to the exciting world around them. I want to break the negative stigmas that my community has about the world and show them that there's good out there and there’s so many opportunities for growth as a person. I love trying new things and stepping out of my comfort zone. Life begins when you step out of your comfort zone after all. Developing multiple perspectives of this world is a gift that not everyone gets to have and this program will allow me have that. I've got a hunger to explore the world around me and learn about other people's beliefs and cultures, how what's normal in one country is taboo in another. This program offers me a chance to satiate this hunger that’s filled me. Actually I never want to fully satisfy that hunger. I never want to lose it. That hunger has made me who I am and made me dream of things that I never previously thought were possible. Being a part of this program will help me elevate it to dreamable heights.
