Study Abroad Trip to South Africa

Hello there! My name is Lizzy Herrera and I am a senior wildlife biology major at Tarleton State University. Ever since I was little I dreamt of traveling the world and exploring the incredible wildlife that other places have to offer. Now in my last year as an undergraduate, I have the opportunity to achieve that dream. I was able to obtain the last spot for our study abroad trip in June of 2015 and have been working really hard to put money toward the trip, but not as much as I would like to.
            I  never imagined that I would even get an offer to take a trip abroad, especially to South Africa. After listening to my peers' past experiences on the trip, it only excites me more in wanting to go. The trip is one month of backpacking through different wildlife game reserves and refuges and learning around 40 species of birds common in South Africa. I feel like this trip will open my eyes to a new culture and a different perspective on the beauty that is our planet. Please help make my dream come true and send me off to South Africa! Any amount large or small is a symbol of support which I am eternally grateful for!
