However, it does cost to attend the Congress and there will be expenses of travel, food and lodging for myself and my mom. I am 16 years old with a 4.0 GPA and near perfect school attendance record. I have a part time job and also have chores at home. I also love my dance classes at Grace Dance Center. My father died before I was born and my mom is my half sister that has guardianship of me. My mom is a single mother and I am the youngest of her 4 children. She works very hard to provide for me and my older brother, she just bought me my first used car and she simply can not afford the entire cost of this. But I know she will do whatever it takes to get us to the Congress. I have overcome so much in my short life and I just want to make a difference in the world. I believe attending this Congress will help me prepare for a career in the medical profession so that I may help others. So please help us by donating any amount you can, it is very important to me to become a medical professional and show everyone, it does not matter what hand you are dealt in life, You can turn it around and make something great of yourself.
