Opportunity of a lifetime


Hi everyone. I am a junior, double majoring in Accounting and Business Administration with a concentration in Management. For the second year now, the Ithaca College School of Business is conducting a Short Study Abroad summer program in China. This year, the program is scheduled for May 14-29, 2014.In both of my fields of study, having a study abroad experience to China would be advantageous but as an independent student, I am solely responsible for the cost of my college education, and unfortunately summer financial aid is unavailable.

We will be traveling between Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Nanchong, where we will be able to witness the more industrialized coastal region of China as well its developing and rural cities. I chose to go to China because I saw the impact it had on the students who participated the first year. They could not stop talking about the trip and how great it was to have been able to experience another culture. Hearing them talk about what they learned such as how business is conducted in different parts of China and their interaction with the people there was fascinating. I can only imagine what that could have been like for them. I hope that my experience abroad will encourage new modes of thinking and I will be able to develop valuable career skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, as well as expanding my worldview and multicultural perspective.

Fees:
Those of you who have traveled around the world and had an opportunity to study abroad for awhile, know what a life-changing experience it is to study abroad. Though many people warned me that the trip is quite expensive, (total cost of the trip is $6,000) this does not stop me from pursuing this opportunity. I have a goal of raising $5,000 dollars in 120 days; it's a big goal, but this is something I am very passionate about. I hope to raise $5,000 online, and save $1,000 from my two on campus jobs.
The money I raise from donations will go towards expenses such as:

· Round tip plane ticket: $2,400
· Deposit: $500
· Visa: $200
· 1 Credit class: $1,100
· Living at a local University and food: $1,000
· Transportation while in China: train rides one train ride in China, transportation cost in each city to include pick up and drop off from/to airports-business site visits-going for cultural excursions, admission fees for cultural sites, and administrative fees: $800

If you can't donate anything, that is totally fine and completely understandable! However, you can help by sharing this page because every little bit helps.

I am so grateful for the time you have taken right now to read my page.
