I was inspired to create change two years ago when my eyes were opened to the inequality that plagues children everyday. That's when I started working with Free the Children, a non-profit organization that works to break the cycle of poverty and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to create change in the world.
I want the opportunity to help educate children who dream of going to school. I want to help break the cycle of poverty through allowing them to gain access to a proper job in the future. I want to help, not just by donating money, but by donating my time and my presence in order to impact.
This is why I've decided to volunteer for a Me to We trip to Tanzania this May to help build schools and structures that will help the village's society thrive. By donating money to the costs of my trip, you'll be helping me acheive my goal and dream of helping others.
Being a student is my primary identity - it creates the path that will guide my future. Without my education, without the knowledge and critical thinking skills I've aquired throughout years of schooling, I wouldn't be me. Thank you for helping me help others discover their education, and discover themselves. I am beyond thankful for your help.
