Ely's European Odyssey


I am a 7th, grader who attends Ocoee Middle School. I have the privledge of being  among the few who will travel as a U.S. Student Ambassador with the People to People program. People to People is an International educational travel program, who offer travel destination on all seven continents for students in grades 5-12. Student Ambassador Programs are typically 14-23 days in length and feature unique activities for building independence and maturity, exclusive cultural moments to increase global awareness and exciting destinations to foster a love for international travel and foreign cultures. I  will be traveling with 20-30 students and leaders who are teachers in Florida and including one from own town of Ocoee. My itinerary consists of three countries, France, Italy and Greece. Not only will U visit many historical sites, such as the Louvre, the Vatican, Eifel Tower, Tower of Pisa, the Olympian, Acropolis etc. but I will also be hands on in Italy I will help nuns in a convent, I will  also meet with members of Parliament and propel down a 100 ft. castle. I too will also be doing a home stay in Italy to learn how everyday people and students live in Province, Italy. In Greece I will visit a middle school and interact with students his age.


This is a lifetime experience for myself as I am the first in my family to ever travel to Europe.   This program broadens my opportunities to explore many options for my future. In order for me to experience this great opportunity my family and I  are raising the funds for the trip. The cost of the trip is $7000 I have asked my coummunity to help me with cost I am also asking if you can help me raise $2000 that can go towards my fund to help pay for this voyage. God Bless you and thank you  for your support, if you can please the page.
