As you can probably imagine, I am very excited to have an opportunity to immerse myself in what I believe will be an amazing experience. However, the one concern that I had entering this pursuit, has now become very real"”that being, of course, finances. Although the financial aid I receive covers the tuition of the study abroad program itself, there are several other expenses that remain unaccounted for, such as airfare ($1,300), U.S. passport and visa ($300), supplies"”i.e. paints, pencils, canvas, digital camera, laptop and books"”($2,500), meals ($700), and transportation fares ($200). Recognizing that the onus to cover these expenses falls squarely on my shoulders, I will be working full-time as an intern at a construction company during the winter break. Unfortunately, that assignment alone will not cover all the aforementioned expenses.
That said, I have set up this fundraising site to ask you, my family, friends, and supporters, to help me achieve my study abroad goal. Needless to say, any donation amount is welcome and greatly appreciated. And, as a token of my appreciation, I hope to hold a drawing, once I return, whereupon I will give away one, or a few, of my artwork pieces to my generous donors. Thank you all in advance.
