Help Send Danielle to Colombia!

Hola a todos!

I have been accepted into a study abroad program at my university, University of Maryland Baltimore County, and I am going to Colombia on May 30th for 6 weeks! I am a  chemical engineering major with a Spanish minor and the purpose of this trip is to help learn the language. The secret to fluency is to be immersed in the language and culture. 

I am working hard for this trip by teaching  swim lessons, at a community center and additionally I am applying for grants. I am diligently working hard to save money,  but I won't be able to earn enough for this trip alone.  I have multiple expenses including  airfare, tution, textbooks, meals, and local transportation. 

While there I will take credit classes,  visit several cities,  and enjoy the culture with a group of students, and live with a host family.   I have always dreamed of studying abroad and I now have the chance of a lifetime, but for this to be possible, I need your help.  

To keep everyone updated with my journey to Colombia, I have created a blog and attached the link below. I will post updates on the blog and corresponding ones here, with the a link to each post.

As a result of this opportunity, when I return, I plan to pay it forward and help other students who may not have the means, to find funding to study abroad.

I am grateful for this opportunity and know that I can raise the funds to travel. I am asking for donations no matter how small or how large;  any amount will help me get closer to  my goal. I challenge everyone to share my GoFundMe page with 5 friends and encourage them to do the same.
