This has been sitting here for over a month, because I really have a hard time asking for not only money, but help. However, I am desperately needing your help. This trip to Germany is more than just a study abroad. This is a step outside of my comfort zone in so many ways. For those of you who don't know, I suffer from PTSD which causes me a lot of anxiety. One of the things I suffer with most is my willingness to create change. I'm not telling you this to guilt trip you, but I want you to understand me. This would be a huge change for me. And although it scares me, I am pushing to get past my fear to use this as a learning experience. To show myself, I am more than my anxiety and can get past it. This money will be for the tuition as well as expenses for what I will need for the trip and emergency money.
Although, I will be away from family, friends, and will be doing a lot of extra work to complete my degree as a Mass Comm major, I want you to know, I will not waste any money given to me. I will, and I repeat will MAKE YOU ALL PROUD. I will work hard, study German and my Film class and make the best out of this trip. Even if you can't donate, if you could please share, I'd appreciate it tremendously. Thank You So Much Anaise Forde
