Hello my name is Aminata, I'm 16 years old and I am currently a Junior at Gary Comer College Preparatory in Chicago, Illinois. Just recently, I was accepted to the Global Navigator Scholarship for the 2018 CIEE Global Navigator program. CIEE is the Council for International Eduactional Exhange. I will be studying abroad in Iringa, Tanzania for three weeks in the summer of 2018 to empower girls through sports. I was awarded this scholarship based on academic merit and need. For the past two years of highschool, I have earned straight A's on my report card. I have also been involved in student council, Stem Honors, the Debate Team, and have participated in many more academic related clubs and activities.
I express much gratitude to CIEE (the Council on International Educational Exchange) for offering me this amazing opportunity. As a highschooler, traveling outside of the country will make a tremendous impact on me and the young girls I meet.
While this scholarship covered 100% of the programs fee, I still need to cover the cost of round-trip airfair, and vaccines by March 15th of 2018. It would mean so much to me if you could donate and help me on my Journey to Tanzania!
THANK YOU so much again for supporting me, and please keep in mind that no amount is too small because at the end of the day it will all add up! I look forward to sharing my experince with all of you!
