Artist aspires to go to Greece

Hi! My name is Jamie Christine Coplin and I am a Junior in high school and ever since I was young I was interested in art. Although when I was younger I never thought I would be able to even think of art as a career. However, as I got older I saw that art, specifically illustration and design, is what I wanted to do. I have taken many art classes throughout middle school and high school. After a while of taking classes I realized that if I worked hard enough I could make my dreams a reality.  This year I have been given an opportunity to travel on a 10 day trip to Greece with my Visual Arts class. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel and see the world. This trip has the potential to be my first time in europe. As well as being able to learn and experience other cultures. I would love to be able to view the history and evolution of art in Greece. As well as bettering my own art by exposing myself to other art forms throughout Greece. My only issue is that I wont be able to afford this trip on my own. Being in high school I don't have any savings or other methods of paying for this trip. I have been fundraising though candy sales but my fear is that alone will not be able to fund the entire trip. That is why I am turning to you for help.  All funds raised will be used for airfare, lodging, food, and transportation. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story. I am so grateful just to have this opportunity. Any and all help is wonderful, thank you so much!
