My name is Alexandra, and I am a junior, majoring in finance and economics, attending the University of Colorado Boulder. I have been blessed with an opportunity and have been choosen to study abroad in china for two weeks this coming May of 2014. Duringthe trip, we will be traveling to 2 cities, Beijing and Shanghai. We will be learning culturally acceptable behavior in a business environment and use that knowledge to make recommendations on improved business practices. While spending a week in each city, we will meet with Chinese boutique firms, corporations, and government branches and agencies. My goal for this experience is to gain an appreciation and passion for one of the most dynamic and exciting business environments in today's ever fluid and developing global markets. I have been dedicated to saving for this trip but still need assistance in funding through scholarships and donations. All of the money that is raised will be applied solely towards tuition, room, board and meal costs, as well as various other small travel exlenses and fees. It is at this time that I ask for your help and that you would pledge any amount to myself and my education. I am forever grateful for your compassion and support. Any amount is appreciated and considered extremely generous.
In the words of the late Nelson Mandela, "education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Thank you, Alex
