Florence, Take Me!

Hi there, friends and family! As many of you may already know, I am on my way to Florence this upcoming January and I am staying until May. I know, I know, the picture above of me in Florence is Photoshopped---FOOLED YA (Thanks, Mike!). Anyway, I have been saving for this trip since the beginning of the year, but as various financial obstacles have presented themselves along the way, it's been difficult to stay on track with what I need to bring to Italy in order to make it on my own without worry.

I am so grateful for the life-changing opportunity to study abroad through SNHU at Florence University of the Arts and I'm even more grateful for having people in my life who support me in my choices. I'd love to be able to follow through with this so I am turning to you for any financial support you are able and willing to give. Every little bit counts and will by no means go unnoticed, but rather, will be deeply appreciated. 

Here's a link to my website to see some video work I have done throughout the past year: www.ehfarfilms.com. There will be many photos and videos to show once the expedition comes to a close; I can't wait to share it all with you, and at the same time, add a new dimension to my portfolio! So please, help send this aspiring filmmaker to her homeland and magic will come of it, I promise!

Much love to you all.
