Study Abroad in Tokyo!

Hello everyone! As most of you all know, I was recently accepted into a Japanese summer study abroad program which takes place from May 21st to June 19th at J.F. Oberlin University in Machida, Japan, a suburb of Tokyo. 


Currently, I've applied for the Benjamin Gilman Scholarship and will apply to TU Institutional Scholarships for Study Abroad. While I hope that I will receive these awards, even if I did, I would still need additional funding in order to pay for airfare, food and incidentals. I'm also looking some part time jobs in order to save more the summer. However, after applying for several positions since September, I still have yet to receive an interview. 

I thought I would set up this funding page in case anyone would like to contribute to my trip. I would appreciate it so much since this has been a lifelong dream for myself, and I hope this will open up several opportunities in international communications and travel writing. 

Thank you for visiting my page! :) I will be adding donors to my Tumblr travel journal.

This morning, I woke to find my fund meter up to nearly $200. It was so unexpected, and I'm blessed to have people who are actually interested in my dreams. Thank you so much for your help. I didn't expect anything from this page, but you've made me think otherwise.

<3,
Claudia
