Growing up in the area I live makes hunger, pollution, overpopulation, poor air quality, or lack of education seem foreign. There is little to no diversity. Where I live is often viewed as a “bubble” in which the people are protected from many real-world issues.
The experience of working with my classmates as well as students from Ecuador will allow me to escape the barrier between where I live and the real world. Going to a developing country such as Ecuador will open my eyes to how people in other areas of the world live and help me develop a greater appreciation for the things I normally take for granted. As my mom did after college, I want to travel and immerse myself in new cultures. The trip will also help me build on my Spanish skills.
I am very hopeful and grateful for the opportunity. To go I need to raise $3000 dollars to cover the cost of my trip. Your money will help me help Ecuador and allow me to grow as a person. Any amount you choose to donate would be greatly appreciated.
