Who: Me, Isabella Silva :)
What: *MediaLight's 10-week intensive training program using a holistic approach on all things media--video production, radio, graphics, scriptwriting, camera, directing, sound crafting, editing, radio programming, blogging, social media, photography, and missions.
Where: Northern Thailand
When: October 1, 2014 - November 30, 2014
Why: I have decided to do this program because I believe in the power of story. I know that if we took the time to listen to the stories of others and observe life from different perspectives, we can begin to live lives of Christ-like compassion, understanding, and love. I want to live a passionate life in deep pursuit of just that. Through this program, I believe I have the opportunity to be equipped with the tools needed to share those stories. Throughout the process, I will be living, struggling, and growing while learning more about myself, my faith, and God's kingdom. This program is the perfect blend of being in a different community with others, investing in their lives, gaining new perspectives, and learning how to share these experiences. Those are just a few of my favorite things in life, how could I not jump at the opportunity?
My goal date for raising this money is Monday, Sept. 22, 2014.
(that's less than a month!)
Although I'll be doing other things to raise the money such as selling my clothes, garage saling, recycling, etc, I won't be able to make this happen without the help and support of you all. I truly understand that times are tough right now. Whether you give $5, $20, $100 (I can accept donations on the Venmo app too), sharing this page, or you just want to hit me with some prayers and slices of encouragement, ANYTHING helps. If you just want to hug me, that's totally cool too. Thank you so much for your love and for taking the time to read this.
So much love,
