Study Abroad: Australia

I have a great opportunity of a lifetime. It wouldn't be possible without my friends and family love and support. I have been accepted to study abroad in Australia. It's been my desire to study kinesiology with an emphasis in sports psychology and leadership. I want to comeback being a more inspiring and influential person. While in Austrtalia I'll be eager to study sports culture and sports management, maybe learn how to play rugby. I'm currently a junior at Cal-State Long Beach. As my dreams come closer to being real, I didn't realize how expensive going overseas can be. As I analyze and give careful attention to cost implications of my decision to further my education I realize I need some financial help. Not a lot, but every penny, nickel, dime, quarter and dollars will help.  I have been able to put myself through school for my first three years. I have some money that I have been saving for quite awhile to help me for the next 4-5 months. Unfortunately I will not be working while I'm in Australia. I am asking for a little help.  As many of you know I love to eat, but I don't eat shrimp. But since I'll be in Australia I want to try a couple of shrimp on the barbie, some aligator and maybe some kangaroo. Think of giving me my X-mas present in July in monetary form that will help expand my knowledge to encompass a global perspective 17 hours away and 7, 672 miles away. I wouldn't expect any x-mas gifts when I comeback as you would help give me my greatest x-mas gift and experience in my 20 years of life.
