From Prairies to Policies

Hello, Facebook friends & family! I reach out to you at a pivotal time in my life and career goals. Just recently I applied for an internship in Washington D.C. By the grace of God, I was accepted into the program and even received some scholarships to help. Nonetheless, the trip is expensive. The trip as a whole will cost $7,495; due to preparation in advance, I only lack $4,500. I beseech of all who can donate to do so in good faith. A dollar or even as modest as fifty cents goes a long way to helping me reach my goal.

    This opportunity means a lot to me. In D.C, I will be participating in a Comparative Political and Economic Systems (ICPES) internship that will count as three college credits towards my transcript. I wish to go to D.C not only to edify myself and my understanding but so that I may also come home with knowledge to share with others. Please find it in your heart to donate if possible but pray for me regardless. Hope that you all can contribute to this amazing journey I shall embark on. God bless!
