Averie's Medical Conference

Greetings!  Thank you for visiting my GoFundMe page!
My name is Averie Owens, and I am raising money towards an opportunity for a lifetime.  I have been invited to represent Burleson as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston this summer.  The invitation was an honor, as they only invite students who have a high GPA, potential for leadership, and an interest in pursuing a career in a medical field.

My goals for the future are to attend Louisiana State University to study neuropsychology.  My plan is to work in the field of neuroscience as a researcher.  Attendance at this conference would help me prepare for this by putting me in contact with 
- Winners of the Nobel Prize
- Award-winning young inventors and scientists
- Prominent medical school deans
- Leaders in medicine
-Other students who have similar goals to mine

The tuition for the conference, along with travel and lodging expenses will cost approximately $2000.  My family plans to attend with me, but they will pay their own way.   

I would appreciate any amount to help me reach this financial goal, as I would like to attend without putting the  burden entirely on my parents.    I have until January 12 to accept the invitation, so if I could raise the money by then, it would be amazing.  Thank you in advance for your support!
