Study Abroad in Rome

I am a student in the Interior Architecture program at Ohio University. I am trying to raise money for a study abroad trip to Rome. I am a hardworking individual and I always strive to be the best that I can be. I am putting myself through school, almost all on my own and I have never let anything stop me from getting the education that I deserve. I applied for as many scholarhships as I could to help pay for this study abroad program. I am doing everything I can to make this trip possible. I have come to realize I can't do it all on my own. I am asking for anyone who can to aid me in this dream I am trying to make come true. 

 My overarching goals for this trip are to broaden my perception of the Italian culture and more importantly enhance and develop my capabilities of design. I hope I will become more fluent and professional later in my career because I will have this enriching experience. Meeting new people excites me because it will allow me to learn about others backgrounds and develop relationships that could potentially affect my personal life as well as my career. Rome is a city filled with extraordinary architecture and the fact that many of these buildings still stand today shows that they were very well constructed. I want to study how and what these structures communicate to their surroundings. Being there, I know I will be filled with inspiration and collect ideas for my own work which will prove to be nothing but beneficial. I am confident this trip will help me grow as a designer as well as a person if I was given this once in a lifetime opportunity.

I want to thank everyone who decides to support me through this journey. Even just sharing this page with your friends and family would mean a lot to me. You will bring me closer to achieving my dream of becoming a successful designer.
