First, I want to share a little something about me. My name is De'ja Monet Sawyer, and I am Junior in the Gifted and Honor Student Program at Warren Easton Charter High School. My academic success includes my membership in the National Honor Society and participating in the Taylor/NOMA Scholar Program. I am also a proud member of the Nazarene Baptist Church, where I actively serve in the Youth Ministry and perform in the choir and the liturgical dance ministry! Upon graduating, I aspire to attend Dillard University, Nichol State University or University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I plan to study Pediatric Nursing.
My accomplishments and my faithfulness have lead me to the next step of my academic journey. I have been chosen as a People to People Student Ambassador and will be traveling next summer for 19 days of learning to Italy, France, Austria & Switzerland. This program provides a unique opportunity for educational growth, which can help me develop beyond the classroom and I will earn academic credit and perform service-learning hours. My involvement as a Student Ambassador will provide me with a competitive edge on college and scholarship applications.
An experience such as this, will require an investment. Raising funds for such a noble cause cannot be possible without the generous support and sponsorship of donors in my family and my community. The costs associated with participation is $7,330 and funds will be due by May 2014. We ask that all commitments are pledged by March, 2014, so that I can plan accordingly! Your generous support will directly go towards payment of the academic fees and funding for the People to People Program.
I also solicit your prayers during this process and promise to make a strong impact to all the lives that I touch. My future is exciting and I thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any queries regarding this request, please feel free to contact Felicia Simon at [phone redacted]. Apart from this, you may visit the website www.peopletopeople.com to get more details about the program. I am sincerely grateful if you can extend your help and support!
