My brother and I have been accepted to Oxford University's Summer Economics and Law Academy. With your help, we will be able to pay for tuition, food, and traveling expenses during our stay. The traveling expenses include round-trip airfare and train tickets. The donation drive ends August 31, 2018.

We are David and Calvin Pruden, two brothers who want to expand our knowledge and change the world. We are from Detroit, Michigan and we attend Bloomfield Christian School. We hope to use this experience to broaden our horizons and learn how our fields (Law and Economics)operate from an international perspective. While learning at Oxford we will also learn about the deep English tradition and history that has shaped many countries beliefs and ideals.

We have been blessed to have a family that supports us in our academic pursuits and extracurricular activities. From childhood, our parents have fostered a love of education in our hearts and minds which has encouraged us to pursue this experience. The opportunity to study at Oxford University is a stepping stone toward our future academic pursuits, plans, and purpose. Please join us in our pursuit of a higher education by donating to our cause.

The second picture is from inside the chamber where each government representative is sharing their position. This is an area that David wants to go into after he gets his law degree.

Oxford University Report: David and Calvin are doing great and learning a lot. They have Oxford professors teaching them just about all day. They go through a full day of studies and then an evening lecture that concludes at 8PM. They had to do 15 minute presentations today in their respective specialties and have a big test on Friday plus a "mock" interview with Oxford admissions people later during the week as well. David and Calvin are in good spirits and thankful for your prayers and support!

Hi everyone, we have been in England for two days now and we are having a wonderful time. Our first day was orientation part 1 with an accompanying icebreaker with the other students, everyone had jet lag so we all went to bed fairly early. Today we had our first lessons for our respective academies (orientation part 2) and have been given a basic beginners crash course on what we will be learning over the next two weeks. Later on, we had a tour of the numerous colleges at Oxford University, some of which are Oriel (that is where we stay), Corpus Christi, University College, Exeter, Jesus College and many more. I posted some pictures and video of our tour on the story page. We'd like to thank everyone who helped us achieve our dream, we wouldn't be here without you.

Cheers,
David and Calvin Pruden
