Caleb - Foreign Exchange Studies

"Not all those who wander are lost"
-  Gandolf, The Fellowship of the Ring (Lord of the Rings trilogy)

Hello, I am Caleb Adams from Raleigh, NC. I am sixteen years old and currently a sophomore at Broughton High School where I also play on the soccer team.  I have also played basketball for many years in the AAU club league.  I have been given the opportunity of studying abroad in New Zealand.  I arrived here in Auckland, NZ on January 30.  And, I could use your help if you can offer it. 

I have been accepted for the Foreign Exchange Study program through AFS-USA ( because I want to experience and see how it is to live in another country other than the USA.  I am excited to meet new people and friends in other parts of this world.   As a bilingual English/Spanish speaker, I traveled to Nicaragua this past summer to help translate on a volunteer team but it was only a short term trip.  This opportunity of being in New Zealand will be a five month experience lasting through July 2015.

So far I have raised the funds to get here.  I need your help to raise the rest to cover some expenses while I am here.  As a donor to this program, you will receive bi-weekly updates from my blog as I archive my experience and you will make a huge difference in my life. 

A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated and valued.   

Check out the specific program information here  

With gratitude,
Caleb Adams
