Meet & Teach trip to South Africa am a senior at Southern Illinois University Carbondale majoring in Radio/TV and Digital Media specializing in TV Production. Currently, I am a student videographer for the University of Communication & Marketing. I also serve as Vice-President of Broadcast for The National Association of Black Journalist (NABJ) SIU Chapter, and a Studio Supervisor at WSIU-TV (regional PBS) undertaking various roles ie. director, technical director, and anchor.

I have been granted another opportunity to volunteer with the Meet & Teach organization in Cape Town, South Africa this June. Meet & Teach provides disadvantage youth with hands-on educational workshops and sports camps. As a recent volunteer with Meet & Teach here in the United States, I was able to develop my skills in teaching videography, photography, and mentoring to the youth. I am excited to enhance my skills furthermore in Cape Town, South Africa.

In order to make this trip possible, I am currently seeking any size donations to help fund the cost of the trip. Donations will cover flights, housing, transportation, and all other necessities needed to make this journey possible.

I would like to thank you in advance for your contribution. Large or small donations would be greatly appreciated.
