Searching Beyond My Boundaries

Hello! :) My name is Ellen Dinh and I have been accepted for an opportunity of a lifetime to study abroad on a voyage around the world for a program called Semester at Sea for the spring semester of 2015. This trip does more than just visit multicultural and diverse countries, but it also enriches my education because while I am out at sea from country to country, I will be inside classrooms enhancing my knowledge. That is why I am "Searching Beyond My Boundaries," because the world has so much to offer that can't be taught inside a classroom.

Here's a brief overview of the expenses:

Airfare, Visas & Immunizations                         $3,000
Textbooks                                                                     $500
__________________________________________________
Total:                                                                               $3,500

There's nothing more I want than this trip, because I am currently working three jobs, I am a full time college student and to top it off, I want to make this happen without any help from my parents. Even though the program actually costs about $30,000, my fundraising goal is $6,500 because I'd like to earn the rest on my own. And even if I don't reach my goal, I will be grateful and appreciative for any amount that is donated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! 

Thank you,
Ellen Dinh
