My goal for this trip is to get another step closer to fluency so that I can reach out even further to Spanish-speakers that are in need in the U.S. and abroad.
While I am there I will be volunteering at a child-care center in Santiago for under-privileged children. I will have to pay around $2 a day for transportation costs.
The cost of my plane ticket was a little more than $1,400. I will also need $275 to pay to ChileVentura for the organization of my volunteer placement, along with money for food (I'm unsure on this cost). Fortunately, the family of my boyfriend, Pancho, is allowing me to stay with them there in Santiago without any cost.
Also, I am selling my art to fund this trip. Check it out at etsy.com/shop/ArtToTravel.
Thank you so much!
