Hello, my name is Magdalena! I'm asking for your help on Go Fund Me because I was invited to go to China by the International Scholar Laureate Program. I was contacted about this opportunity because I am a part of Phi Theta Kappa (yes, I'm a nerd) and I was thinking it would be a wonderful opportunity to go. This trip would be happening around May. The total cost for the trip is about 3000 dollars and the flight is about an additional 1000! Unfortunately I can't afford to just throw money at this miraculous opportunity and that's why I'm asking for your help! This excursion an educational business trip and I've included a photo of what I'd be doing in the fourteen days in China and what your money is being put into. I think that this trip will be a great eye opener on how things work within our business system of the world and an extravagant feast of cultural experience. And, while I don't expect people to throw money at me ( maybe just a little), I do want you to know that I will do my best to provide you with a tiny piece of me by offering small watercolour paintings I've made (I've included examples of them in the photos). Just throw me an address or if you know me quite well, demand it in person! I can't begin to thank you enough if you do offer up a piece of you into my small cause! I hope to hear from everyone and I'll make sure to write thank you letters and update you on the trip if I am privy to go!
