Biruk Araya's Study Abroad

My name is Biruk Araya and I am a 19-year-old sophomore at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky. I am currently studying Environmental Science in my pursuit to sustain and protect the environment and its inhabitants. I am planning on participating in the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad (CCSA) trip to South Africa this summer from June 25-July 15. This is a study abroad opportunity during the summer going into my Junior year and it will count for 3 academic credits. This will be a great opportunity to expose myself to new and thrilling experiences that will last a lifetime. I hope to use the knowledge I gain from this experience and apply it in my life and in my area of study. Your generous contributions will directly go towards the trip. The fees include course-based fees, travel, accommodations, meals, cultural excursions, and much more. I deeply appreciate your time and efforts. If you cannot contribute financially, please feel free to share this with friends and family and anyone that you know. Sharing this on Facebook or any other social media platform will help tremendously. Thank you so much for your interest in my future. If you have any questions, clarifications, or concerns, you can email me:
