My goal is to raise $11,500 to cover my full tuition. I am applying for the full scholarship offers, and as soon as I turn 16 in October, I plan to get a part-time job to help me raise money. I am also going to start to sell things online and take up small jobs to help cover the cost. Unfortunately, my family is not affluent, especially in the current economy, so I know that going on this trip is impossible financially unless I do my best to fundraise! So I want to give it my all to make my dreams a reality. To anyone that donates, I am extremely grateful to you! If you can, please share my blog with others to help me!
