Gia's Japan Trip

Hi, my name is Gia and I am a 15 year old freshman in high school. I have an educational opportunity to go on a nine day trip to Japan! I have been slowly learning Japanese for about a year. My goal is to teach English there one day. This opportunity is all about learning about Japan and what it has to offer; I think that's super important for someone like me. Please help me go on this journey and experience this educational opportunity. The expense for the trip is about $3,500, but additionally I have to pay for a few extras. I just really want my Mom, a single parent, to be non-stressed because she works 7 days a week. I am also earning money for my trip by baby sitting and tutoring. I will be requesting donations December 10th; the trip is from March 31-April 8, however the company the trip is with requires it by December. I would be so happy if I could get even the slightest of help because this means so much to me and my family, especially my Mom because she works really hard to take care of me.
