My name is Monica and I am a 4-H member in Illinois. I am raising funds to travel abroad to South Korea in the four week Summer Abroad 4-H program. I have been in 4-H for almost 9 years and have been Junior Leader in both my club and county program for two of those years. https://www.states4hexchange.org/
In these years, I have grown incredibly, and 4-H is like family.
I have become more and more interested in other cultures and would like to deepen my understanding of people around the world. This program will offer me a one month home stay experience with a Korean family where I will experience daily life with them.
I come from a single parent family and my family often has financial hardships, so doing a large trip, such as the Summer abroad which costs about $5,000, would be impossible without help. I am working to earn funds and also fundraising through sales to reach my goal. I would be so incredibly grateful if you would help make this dream come true.
